Now you can get new Saturday Night Live shorts at the speed of Snapchat.

SNL launched a new Snapchat Stories channel through Snapchat Discover on Friday, and the debut video is "Boycott," a short inspired by President Donald Trump. Aidy Bryant and Beck Bennett play a couple attempting to boycott all products associated with the president, which proves to be no easy task.

They quickly trade Lyft for Uber over CEO Travis Kalanick's involvement in Trump's advisory board, before trading a pedicab for Lyft over investor Peter Thiel, a Trump supporter. Even the pedicab purchased his bike from Amazon, which sells Trump ties.

"We'll be safe at home," says Bennett. But that too is a minefield of Yuengling, My Pillow, and Kraft Mac & Cheese.

"So he's taken cheese from me, too?!" Bryant screams.

The couple frantically realizes everything must go, including their clothing, as Bryant wears "head-to-toe Costco." However, that's mostly because "they sell mayonnaise and stuff. You shouldn't buy clothes there."

As they rant and rave in despair, naked and outside their trashed home, they find hope in the news that Kalanick has left Trump's advisory board. Their "voices matter," but they still look like lunatics.
