Mad Men Fun Result(s): 1 - 6 of 6
Is your inner Pete Campbell scrambling to get out? Give yourself a Mad Men makeover courtesy of this fun little game, one of the most popular features at the official
Mad Men website.
Outfit your custom cartoon self with a body shape, hairstyle, clothing (all new this season) and accessories. Then insert your snazzy new '60s self into a scene from the show,
download your creation and share it with your friends.
This game also has a practical side. You can create a headshot-only avatar suitable for use as a profile picture on social networking sites if you're leery of sharing a
Other temptations at the website include a blog, email newsletter and discussion forum page to tide you over between episodes or seasons.
One of Mad Men's appeals is that it's just authentic enough to make you wonder: Did it really happen? Grove/Atlantic is breaking down yet another barrier between the
TV show and its audience by publishing Roger Sterling's fictional autobiography as a real book.
Keeping in character with the show, the publisher claims the book is an out-of-print groundbreaker from 1965, found in the basement of Sterling's former home. It even promotes
the book with a phony 1965-era press release featuring bogus glowing reviews from fellow ad men and publications like The Saturday Evening Post.
A sample of Sterling's "wit and wisdom" that still apply today:

You can't watch past Mad Men episodes online (legitimately, that is), but clip compilations are all over the Internet. Here's one of the best, showcasing the rich
varieties of meaning and inflection Don Draper gives the simple word "what." It's his shorthand for more complex expressions such as "You've got to be kidding!," "Pardon me?" or
"What's your problem?"
The official YouTube video has over 450,000 views since its posting in October 2010, but the actual number likely is much higher because of being viewed on third-party sites where
fans have embedded it, such as the site linked here ("Adverblog," dedicated to Interactive Marketing issues).
This collection by costume designer Janie Bryant is a line of '60s-inspired clothing for women, including chic cardigans, jewelry, faux-fur items and a to-die-for shawl-collar coat that looks as if it just came from Joan Holloway's closet. Priced from $26 to $144 at time of writing.
