WATCH: Meet James Van Der Beek's Hilarious Homophobic Indiana Salesman


Actors James Van Der Beek and Anna Camp show exactly what Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act looks like in action.

Funny or Die has done it again. In the comedy website's most recent video, Dawson's Creek star James Van Der Beek and Pitch Perfect's Anna Camp team up to show just how ridiculous it is for Indiana to enact its recent antigay legislation, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

In the derisive clip, Van Der Beek and Camp play two straight, law-abiding hosts on an Indiana-based home shopping program that can't seem to stop getting calls from customers who all reveal themselves to be LGBT.

"All these liberals!" a slightly frustrated Camp says after getting a call from a home shopper who wanted to buy a set of porcelain plates for her "husband," Lisa. "Are we in Utah or something?!"

Throughout the rest of the video, Van Der Beek and Camp can't seem to sell much, as nearly each one of their callers has a direct tie-in with the LGBT community in one way or another.

They even get a call from a "former" gay man named Al who "successfully" went through a gay-conversion camp.

"Good on you Al, those really work," Van Der Beek says in congratulations as he distractedly stares off into the distance. "They really do."
