I’ve come to discover that every generation thinks their Saturday Night Live cast was the best.  I would argue that the cast of SNL may be great, but it’s the sketches that are problematic because the it’s simply the best that the writers can churn out in a week and that’s usually not enough to sustain a 90-minute TV show.  However, one of the most reliable sketches in the show’s history was TV Funhouse’s “The Ambiguously Gay Duo”.  For those unfamiliar with the sketch (and there hasn’t been a new one in years), it had superheroes Ace and Gary (voiced by Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell) whose acts of heroism were ambiguously homosexual. Yes, it was a one-note joke, but it was such a great parody of superhero cartoon shows that it just worked brilliantly.

But since every superhero is going live-action these days, it only stands to reason that Ace and Gary should be thrust into the real world.  Last night’s SNL cast Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon as the duo with Carell and Colbert playing two of the villains along with host and former Daily Show co-star Ed Helms.  Hit the jump to check out the great sketch.
