The key to satire is to ham things up as much as possible.
It's hardly even satire. It's just copying something badly, hoping it will make it fun in the process.
Would this particular scene have been funny delivered in some over-the-top SNL parody way? No.
Is it funny when delivered in an intentionally bad way like here? No.
Would it have been funny in an actual Reagan era action movie starring Steven Seagal? Yes.
Am I becoming a humorless old fart? Yes.
Don't bother commenting unless you're giving 5 stars, T&E fans revel in their persecution complex and any comment with less than a perfect rating and sloppy blowjob will attract the derping hoard.

I usually agree with baleen on taste, but I really hate these guys.
I just like the battle.

"It's just copying something badly, hoping it will make it fun in the process."
This is Tim & Eric's entire strategy.
I've yet to meet a T&E fan who raves about how entertaining they are. When asked why they like T&E, their usual response is, "Because other people hate them so much."
Holy shit emilio estevez what happened to you!
I'd watch it.
Hey man, whatever it takes to get Joe Estevez working.
Will you cover my ass?
hellooo? team one star? represent!
I'm a little late to the party, but I'm here.
I think what you said in the first thread is exactly right.
To paraphrase one poetver whose name is lost in the dusty corridors of history, watching Tim & Eric is like sifting through a outhouse for a diamond.

Not even remotely clever or interesting.
you really have to be into the show On Cinema with Tim's constant "guest" Gregg Turkington (aka Neil Hamburger) to appreciate this fully.
