Our readers are very familiar with Saturday Night Live's absolutely brilliant 2015 parody of Scientology, the music video "Neurotology."

A take-off on a 1990 music video produced by Scientology itself, "We Stand Tall," SNL's funny vid managed to pack in a ton of great references to Scientology's many controversies, and we detailed them in this earlier post.

From "Meepthorp," the Neurotology leader who died of pink eye, to book titles like "Ignoring Your Brain," to really obscure Easter eggs like a fleeting reference to a big cat, the geniuses at SNL really nailed Scientology in a way that equals or surpasses South Park's notorious 2005 episode "Trapped in the Closet."
