Watch: ‘Saturday Night Live’ Goes Clear With Spoof Video ‘Church Of Neurotology’

Watch: 'Saturday Night Live' Goes Clear With Spoof Video 'Church Of Neurotology'

The Church Of Scientology has not been having a great 2015. Ever since Alex Gibney released his scathing documentary investigation into the church, “Going Clear,” at Sundance, the more controversial, troubling, and just plain weird elements of the cult group/religion have been doing the rounds. And one element that has resurfaced is propaganda/promo video from the early ’90s featuring the creepily upbeat tune, “We Stand Tall.” It’s hilarious and sad all on its own, but “Saturday Night Live” decided to riff on it and debuted the results over the weekend.

Church Of Neurotology” is a pretty direct swipe at Scientology, with video providing “updates” on those involved in the promo, most of whom meet a grim end at the hands of the church. There has been no response yet from the Church Of Scientology, but we’re sure their lawyers are working on something. Watch below and check out the original video that inspired it too.
