Help with kinked chain?

I can't seem to get this kink out of my new chain. It's a SRAM 1/8" and I used a chain tool to reconnect the links rather than the snap lock that comes with those chains. I've tried lube, wiggling it, pedaling it, and adjusting the pin in and out slightly to try and free it up, with no success. Do I need to just break down and use the snap link?
