'Mad Men' video: Every cigarette ever smoked on the show

Posted on

Warning: the video embedded after the jump could give you cancer. JK! On the heels of previous fan-made Mad Men videos — pick-up lines, Betty’s awful parenting, and drinking — comes the latest: a montage that claims to show every cigarette smoked on the show. Fittingly, the video kicks off with Roger and Don talking shop, which leads to Roger waxing nostalgic on the knee-weakening experience of smoking your first cigarette. The video captures how glamorous tobacco seemed in the Mad Men age, but it doesn’t shy away from making fun of how gross and dangerous a habit it is: Witness the clever inclusion of characters’ hacking away with smoker’s coughs. (Ewwww!) It’s a terrific video, even if it’s not all it claims to be.
