They're laughing at us, Andrew.  Isn't that obvious?  The premise of this skit is that homosexuality is inherently ridiculous.  Why are you so gleeful about it?  You reacted the same way to "I'm Fucking Ben Affleck," and made the same basic error.

Aww, c'mon. It's making fun of how homoerotic a lot of male-male bonding in high testosterone movies is. And there's a reference to "getting married" as if the whole concept of marriage equality is part of the cultural furniture. And it's not dumb-ass Adam Sandler gay stuff where his own deep discomfort is on the surface. These two are not uncomfortable; in fact they're comfortable enough as straight guys to have some gayish fun. Lighten up and enjoy the cultural change.
