Stephen Colbert and Alan Cumming Parody Brad Paisley and LL Cool J's "Accidental Racist"—Watch!

If anyone can top Brad Paisley and LL Cool J's "Accidental Racist" song, it's Stephen Colbert!

On Wednesday night's Colbert Report, the fake pundit couldn't resist poking fun at the country singer and rapper's controversial duet with a spoof of his own. Only instead of the thorny subject of race, his little ditty tackled "the gay marriage divide" and featured openly gay actor Alan Cumming.

After setting up the skit with a bitingly satirical intro knocking Paisley and LL for the "unifying suckage" of their collaboration, which aimed to kick-start a dialogue between blacks and whites, Colbert said the duo inspired him to write a similarly "awful" tune.

Donning a cowboy hat, the funnyman then launched into what he called "Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe," his musical attempt to bridge the "deep cultural rift" between gays and straights. 

"To the man stretching next to me/At the Crunch gym down on Main/I hope you understand/When I told you 'God hates fags'/The only thing I meant to say is I'm a Skynyrd fan," crooned Colbert.

At which point Cumming—who last year took advantage of New York's gay marriage law to tie the knot with his longtime partner—strolled onstage and rapped along in the LL spot.

Of course, hilarity ensued. Take a look!
