In its most recent episode, Saturday Night Live put a darkly humorous, and musical, spin on many of the allegations laid out in HBO's much-discussed Scientology documentary, Going Clear.

The skit is an apparent riff on the real-life songs authored by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, and it is presented as an annotated 1990 music video for the "Church of Neurotology." Cast members Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Kenan Thompson and others play various members, in assorted vintage clothing.

As members sing and smile, on-screen graphics pop-up with notes for many of them, such as "Chained to toilet as punishment" and "Hiding in desert as woman."
