Tom Cruise got together with Mission: Impossible Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie to deliver an important message about something you've never heard of-and the internet loves it.

Cruise tweeted the PSA on Tuesday, and in the video, he and McQuarrie discuss the reasoning behind motion smoothing, and how interested viewers can turn the effect off to better enjoy their films.

Something is keeping movie star Tom Cruise up at night: motion smoothing.

The PSA video was welcomed with thanks and appreciation from home movie-watchers and filmmakers everywhere. By searching your specific brand of TV online, you can find out how to turn off motion smoothing and enhance your movie experience.
