The Kids in the Hall-Fag!
This is one of the funniest things ive ever seen. Ive been rewatching kids in the hall since it came up on netflix instant, and somewhere in season 2 (i believe), this short skit acts as the cold open. Its scott thompson being so comfortable dealing with homosexuality in pop culture, and in the early 90s as well, soon after the HIV scare, and during a crucial point in the evolution of including gay culture in our mainstream society.
The music is key for the skit; and also, the use of the music-stopping record scratch sound is shown in its most classic form. It begins with the most happy-go-lucky nonsense; changes styles as the character does, and then the realization comes that "hey, im not the fag, youre the fag", and it closes with that super happy intro song.
