Is there nothing Jon Hamm wouldn’t do for us, PopWatchers? Recall the promo poster for the upcoming season of Mad Men, in which Hamm as Don Draper sits in a flooded office. He tells the AV Club that “I sat in a giant tank of water for a solid Saturday, and it was kind of fun, actually. I mean, once you’re wet, you’re wet. You don’t get any more wet. So you’re just kind of like, ‘All right, here we are.’ And it was a bunch of crewmembers and waiters and an incredibly skillfully constructed set, and I think a pretty cool image that they got out of it as well. I’m sure they could have done some kind of photo trickery, but this makes for a better story, and it’s way cooler to go build it and do it for reals. I think online, there’s a time-lapse image of it filling up, too.'”
Two things. One, yes, and here is the video.
Two, Jon Hamm says “for reals”?! That sound you heard was me dying. I am now deceased, writing the rest of this post from my grave.
Hamm also might be a huge liar, because he said later in the interview “I’m certainly not the best-looking person on the planet.” Psst, Jon, you’re totally in the running!
Who’s counting down the days til the new season, PopWatchers? Sunday can’t come soon enough!
