LOL: The Ambiguously Gay Duo Go Live-Action W/ Jon Hamm, Jimmy Fallon, Steve Carell, and Stephen Colbert
Skipping the obligatory “SNL is rarely ever funny anymore”, one of the most consistent chuckle worthy sketches is TV Funhouse’s “The Ambiguously Gay Duo”. The classic animated sketch of two crime fighting heroes whom are completely unaware of their constant homosexual innuendos.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the ambiguous adventures of heroes Gary and Ace (almost 4 years) but last night the duo made a triumphant return to the late night sketch comedy show. The phrase “a pleasant surprise” would be an understatement. Just when it looked looked as though fans would be treated simply to a new episode featuring the beloved “TV Funhouse” characters, something far cooler was in store. It went live-action.
Thanks to an out-of-control “flesh ray,” the cartoon duo are embodied by Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm. The villains are transmogrified into the real world shortly thereafter, being played Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Ed Helm and Fred Armisen.
The sketch more than speaks for itself. I have nothing more to say other than thank you Saturday Night Live, for this nostalgic treat of homoerotic double entendre.
