Saturday Night Live's season premiere last night featured a commercial parody for Abilify, the drug used to treat bipolar disorder and schizophrenia — but on SNL, it was used to cure the widespread delusion that one could be the next President of the United States. Comedians playing former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore testified how the drug snapped them back to reality.

But for Louisianans, the best joke may have been the kicker:

"So ask your doctor about Abilify today, Bobby Jindal."

It was the show's first swipe at the Louisiana governor since former cast member Nasim Pedrad portrayed him as a glowstick-toting, molly-rolling raver at the Coachella Music Festival.
