Above, please enjoy comedians Nick Kroll and Jon Daly as they solve crimes while wearing head-to-toe douchewear under the aegis of their mentor Christian Audigier. That's right, they're the Ed Hardy Boyz, and they're going to track down that missing sick belt buckle even if it means going to every free vodka event in town. Warning: Their costumes are so perfect that you might wind up hallucinating clouds of cologne just from viewing the clip. And speaking of cologne (see what we did there?), Funny or Die also has a video of "outtakes" from James Franco's Gucci by Gucci fragrance ads. Watch Daniel Desario utterly fail to pronounce the name of the brand, over and over again, after the jump.
