YouTube Blocks, Unblocks, Kirk Cameron’s New Trailer (Also, Bananas)

Kirk Cameron’s new movie Unstoppable almost failed to live up to its name.  The evangelical film producer and brother to DJ Tanner took to Facebook yesterday morning to protest supposed attempts made by Facebook and YouTube to “censor his film”, writing;

“Calling all friends of Faith, Family, and Freedom! Facebook has officially “blocked” me and you (and everyone else) from posting any link to my new movie at UnstoppableTheMovieDOTcom, labeling the content as “abusive”, “unsafe”, and “spammy”! I can’t even write the real link here, or Facebook would block this post too!! Try to post it yourself and see! We have been officially shut down by Facebook and unable to get any response from them. This is my most personal film about faith, hope, and love, and about why God allows bad things to happen to good people. What is “abusive” or “unsafe” about that?! Please help us encourage Facebook to unblock our website soon by sharing this post with your friends so more people can see this transparent, faith-building project.”

 

Though I guess the film’s promise to “settle once and for all that life is stronger than death, good is stronger than evil and faith is stronger than doubt” might be construed as spammy, the trailer would seem to lack any objectionable content at all.

It does however, give us a reason to revisit one of Cameron’s most unintentionally hilarious roles as a bystander to an atheist banana:
