The HBO documentary Going Clear got people talking about its allegations against the Church of Scientology when it aired recently. So it’s only natural that SNL weighed in over the weekend.
In a music video for the fictional Church of Neurotology, SNL cast members play followers who sing happily about beliefs like the immortality of its leader and “brain machines.”
Text added to the video highlights the real-life allegations made in Going Clear, suggesting how followers may have left the church and what happened to them afterward. Per SNL, some became critics while another “lives in a hospital”—and many are simply “missing.”
