By having the actor play the character as an unmistakable campy, gay stereotype and in no way like a female character at all?
Yeah, I get how that could be...unconvincing.
Not funny, either, so the "joke" is a failure all around.
(You know, it might have been mildly amusing if the actor had actually played a feminine character. To do it with any success would also have required performing skills not in evidence in this video.)
