Iran So Far by Andy Samberg and Adam Levine

Is Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad harboring a secret love affair with Andy Samberg?

Now there's an important distinction to make with this video.  Andy Samberg is not making fun of Ahmadinejad for being a homosexual.  The implication is not that Ahmadinejada is an inferior person because he's a homosexual.  What this song is saying is that Ahmadinejad is horrible human being because of his hypocrisy, the deplorable way he treats his people and the lies that he continues to spread.

By making fun of his sexuality Samberg is saying that Ahmadinejad is hiding something from us and is a coward.  He deserves our scorn because of his inability to acknowledge the most basic of human rights and sometimes the best way to deal with this anger is to laugh.
