Gay Bachelor Spoof... Funny or Offensive?

There is a new video from Funny or Die.

In it we are gifted with a spoof of reality show The Bachelor... this time staring (gasp) gay men.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson (one member of a married gay couple on ABC's hit sitcom Modern Family) stars as Bryden, the newest bachelor. Alongside George Takei as the host and a gaggle of hot gay cuties  (including Lance Bass in a tiny cameo!) Jesse simpers and flaps about giving full technicolor vitality to enough gay stereotypes to fill a double wide walk in closet.

Which of course, is the problem.

While it is all well and good to poke fun at ourselves... some say that this video takes that tounge in cheeck thing a tad too far.

What do you think of the portrayal of gay men in the video? Funny? Offensive? True?
