Josh Gad hits the streets of New York to find out what implications the legalization of same-sex marriage will have on the city. (3:29)

OF COURSE THE IMPLICATIONS OF

LEGALIZING GAY MARRIAGE CAN BE

HARD TO FULLY UNDERSTAND

UNLESS PERHAPS YOU HAVE A

CORRESPONDENT WHO WAS IN

MUSICAL THEATER.

WE SENT OUR OWN JOSH GAD FROM

THE BOOK OF MORMON OUT TO MAKE

SENSE OF THIS LANDMARK

LEGISLATION.

>> Reporter: THE LEGALIZATION

OF GAY MARRIAGE MEANS ONE

THING.

SUPER BOWL HERO DAVID TIREE.

>> THIS WILL BE THE BEGINNING

OF OUR COUNTRY SLIDING TOWARD,

YOU KNOW, IT'S A STRONG WORD

BUT ANARCHY.

>> Reporter: NOW EVERYONE FROM

AL BANY TO ROCHESTER WILL HAVE

TO DEAL WITH WHAT PEOPLE HERE

IN THIS CITY HAVE LONG HAD TO

ACCEPT AS PART OF THEIR DAILY

LIVES.

TRAFFIC SNARLS.

SAILORS GONE AWOL.

>> IT'S LIKE AN AVERAGE DAY IN

THE GAY COMMUNITY.

ISN'T SNIT.

>> NO.

THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL DAY

THAT WE HAVE.

>> Reporter: SIR, MAY I ASK

YOU A QUICK QUESTION.

HOW IS THIS NOT LIKE THE

APOCALYPSE?

>> THIS IS A (BEEP) PARADE,

DUDE.

>> Reporter: IT REMINDS ME A

BIT OF THAT PASSAGE FROM

REVELATION.

I SAW A HORSE AND ITS RIDER

WAS WEARING A JOCK STRAP AND

HELL FOLLOWED.

>> I DON'T READ THE BIBLE.

>> Reporter: IT'S IN THERE,

PAGE 42.

>> WHAT KIND OF PARADE IS IN

STORE FOR TOMORROW?

>> I DON'T THINK ANY OTHER

PARADE BECAUSE WE HAVE PRIDE

ONLY ONCE A YEAR.

>> Reporter: YOU'RE SAYING

THIS IS THE PARADE BUT IN

REALITY THE ST. PATRICK'S DAY

PARADE IS A VERY ACCURATE

PORTRAYAL OF HOW IRISH PEOPLE

BEHAVE EVERYDAY.

>> I WOULDN'T SAY THAT AT ALL.

>> Reporter: I WOULD.

>> BECAUSE SOME OF THE PEOPLE

WHO ARE OUT MAKING A MESS ON

ST. PATRICK'S AREN'T EVEN

IRISH.

>> Reporter: BUT IRISH PEOPLE

ARE ALWAYS GETTING DRUNK AND

VOMITING AND INSIDE SUBWAY

STATIONS.

TAKE A GOOD LOOK, UPSTATE.

NORMAL RESPECTABLE PEOPLE LIKE

THIS WILL HAVE NOWHERE TO

TURN.

ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT THE

REPERCUSSIONS OF GAY MARRIAGE?

>> YEAH, I'M ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE.

>> Reporter: ARE YOU GAY?

>> I'M GAY.

>> Reporter: I FISH WITH GUYS

LIKE YOU.

>> THANKS.

WE LOOK LIKE OTHER PEOPLE.

>> Reporter: AMAZING.

YOU'RE NOT GAY.

>> THEY'RE GAY AND I'M GAY.

DAVID, TIREE SUPER BOWL HERO

BRAVELY SHOWING HIS FACE AT

GAY PRIDE PARADE.

UNBELIEVE AL.

IT'S BECOME CLEAR TO ME THAT

MORMON.

TOO BAD YOU DIDN'T WIN.

BOOK OF MORMON?

OH, MY GOD.

>> Reporter: ALL RIGHT.

I HOPE YOU GUYS HAVE FUN

(BEEP) YOURSELVES.

IT BECAME CLEAR THAT NO ONE,

NOT EVEN THIS INTREPID

REPORTER, WAS IMMUNE FROM

THEIR TAKEOVER.

>> I THINK THAT NEW YORK IS A

PART OF THE WORLD RIGHT NOW.

NEW YORK IS GOING TO STILL BE

NEW YORK.

JUST A PART OF EVERYTHING

ELSE.

>> Reporter: REALLY?

>> YES.

HAPPEN?

THREE MINUTES AGO I WAS

WEARING A SUIT.

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I EVEN GOT
