Samberg’s Fast & Furious Spoof: Another Stab at Gay Humor

Who knew car racing had so many homoerotic innuendos? Picking up where he left off in I Love You Man, semi-tolerable Andy Samberg teamed with Saturday Night Live host Seth Rogen to produce this fake ad for The Fast and The Bi Curious. Fortunately, the spoof ad lasts only 90 seconds, not 90 minutes like this weekend’s fourth installation of Fast & The Furious. (Actually, it lasts 107 minutes.)

And with all things gay on SNL, it’s time to answer the question: A homophobic attempt at comedy (look how repulsed the girl looks in the final scene!), or another instance where Samberg is in on the joke?

Samberg has defended himself against these accusations before. He told Out he’s not mocking gays in these skits; he’s mocking straight guys’ uncomfortableness with homosexuality. “It’s bro-gay, which I love just because dudes that are bros and super antigay are the ones who need to get it the worst. They’re the ones we have the most fun fucking with.”

      i thought it was a funny (and kinda hot) spoof, even if Samberg and SNL seem to be going to the gay well an awful lot. I think its more a case of them running out of new ideas, and knowing that the “suprise gay” gag is an easy option.

      Also, the girl in the background is looking on in horror because one of the guys is supposed to be her boyfriend.

      Well, it obviously wasn’t particularly funny, but seeing as how I’ve had a crush on Seth Rogen since Freaks & Geeks, I’ll take it.

      Didn’t that chick play Rachel Maddow? On the episode with NEIL PATRICK HARRIS? WHERE HE DRESSED UP IN DRAG?

      Christ, this show is GAY.

      It’s funny because it’s true. Have you seen The Fast and the Furious? Subtext coming out its ass.

      I have thought Samberg has been very distasteful and offesnive in the past with his “homo-humor” but this I thought was very well done. Much better. With this, I understand his defense with the whole “let’s take a stab at the whole uncomfortable straight dude.”

      I think it’s funny—and, honestly, the face at the end I took to be the total grossness of putting grease in someone’s mouth, and not about them being gay.
