Tom Cruise does splits in birthday boogie vid

'It's a blast, it's a blast'

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Just as the world had begun to recover from January's now-infamous insight into the workings of the mind of Tom Cruise, another succulent morsel of old footage has emerged showing the Top Gun star acting mad.

The latest YouTube snippet bridges the gap perfectly between the four-year-old interview and the even more notorious "jump the couch" clip, showing as it does the tireless Scientology devotee cutting loose at his birthday party. The vid appears to have been nicely edited as a souvenir.

The lavish bash, according to the Evening Standard website, was thrown for the actor in 2004 by his fellow followers of L Ron Hubbard. In the clip a band plays in front of a screen showing some of Tom's finest cinematic moments, while the man himself laughs and claps and other partygoers cheer.

The remarkably bendy protagonist of Jerry Maguire is summoned to the stage to join in with the rollicking performance. As well as singing and general cavorting he is seen doing the splits in Jerry Lee Lewis style. At the end he exclaims: "Whoa... I don't know where I am right now, you have to kinda be there to understand that reality, y'know? Thank you, thank you... it's the best birthday ever ever ever ever... I mean, ever!"

We await the next sneaky leak of footage of Tom eating a donut, or walking somewhere, in an apparently normal yet mesmerisingly disconcerting way. ®
