    Apparently Cruise spoke out of his butt. Over at Harold’s Facebook page he says: “no one has called yet”. ATTN: Cruise — there’s this invention that’s been around for a hundred years called the “telephone”. Harold also has one. You dial a certain number and you can get him. Wild, I know!

      That was more than a week ago, things could have changed since.

      • Justin says:

        That’s only if we assume the video where Cruise made that statement was filmed the same day or before and put up quickly, but who knows how long ago that was filmed. Certainly if Harold was to say he’s not been asked, he would likewise let us know that it was on.
