… And in related news, GQ doesn’t know what a “bro” is. Anyway, after a year where everyone realized that hey, Kristen Wiig is actually hilariously funny, GQ has seen fit to name Kristen their Bro of the Year, and in a write-up for her entry, Jon Hamm revealed what it was like to have pretend sex with his bro on camera. So that happened.

The opening bit in Bridesmaids with all the crazy sexual acrobatics was done on the very last day of shooting. Bounding around in a flesh-colored thong, trying not to sweat all over Kristen while a hundred crew members are literally like, “Can we get this done, please?”—our embarrassment coupled with everyone else’s exhaustion lent that scene a particularly awkward sensibility. But it was inspiring to watch Kristen quarterback the team, be the cheerleader and decision maker, and then get in front of the camera and be hilarious. And surprising. For a lot of comics, there’s a persona they’re not comfortable revealing unless they’re performing.

I could go ahead and say that Kristen is a conventionally hot woman (otherwise, they wouldn’t take a picture of her in bra, panties and heels) and calling a woman your “bro” because she’s funny is the equivalent of taking her foot and ramming it into your ballsack repeatedly yourself, but right now all I can think about is Jon Hamm in a flesh-colored thong. Huminah-huminah-huminah sploosh.
