Scenes from the movie Braveheart appear in a video created by Scientology leader to rev up staffers at a new Las Vegas Celebrity Center.   (Braveheart)

(Newser) – A heavy-duty call-to-battle video featuring clips from Braveheart, Independence Day and various movies of star cult member Tom Cruise has been created by Scientology leaders to spur Vegas staffers into fighting infidels. The video urges members to "play for blood" and features battle scenes bristling with weaponry, from bloody spears to missiles. The video was yanked off You Tube for copyright violations after Gawker informed Lucasfilm that Star Wars scenes were part of the film.

There was no official response from Scientology leaders concerning the video. But the anonymous You Tube poster said the tape was created to convince people to sign up as staff for the new Scientology Celebrity Center in Las Vegas.
