Here's more proof Joey Potter (Katie Holmes) chose the wrong guy at the end of Dawson's Creek. James Van Der Beek teamed with Anna Camp for a hilarious Funny or Die sketch ripping Indiana's homophobic Religious Freedom Act. 

The CSI: Cyber star and True Blood alum star as a couple selling designer plates on a QVC-style home shopping program. The pair freaks out whenever anyone seeming to be gay calls in to place an order. Watch it below!

The Religious Freedom Act initially hoped to give Christian businesses in Indiana the right to refuse service to gays and lesbians. Its creation resulted in a huge backlash and boycott touted by such celebrities as Ellen DeGeneres.

On Thursday, Republican lawmakers in Indiana attempted to "fix" the Religious Freedom Act by prohibiting businesses from using the law as a defense in court for refusing "to offer or provide services, facilities, use of public accommodations, goods, employment, or housing" to any customers based on "race, color, religion, ancestry, age, national origin, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or United States military service."
