Don Draper's Guide to Picking Up Women

You, Too, Can Pick Up Women Just Like Don Draper

It's been a very Mad Men weekend around here. In addition to the second-season finale on Sunday night, about which I'll have a lot more to say in just a little while, Jon Hamm also stopped by Saturday Night Live for a guest-hosting gig that poked some fun at Mad Men and Hamm's character, Don Draper.

A bunch of Hamm's sketches were funny — I was pretty impressed with him overall — and it was great to see fellow Mad Men actors Elisabeth Moss and John Slattery pop up in one of the scenes. But hands-down, my favorite sketch of the night was "Don Draper's Guide to Picking Up Women," which would probably be a classic even if it weren't possibly Amy Poehler's last SNL appearance ever (congrats to her, by the way). To get some relationship advice from the slick womanizer himself, just

I absolutely loved "Don Draper's Guide to Picking Up Women". It was one of the funniest skits I've seen. And I loved the two A-Holes. Jon Hamm was amazing in SNL.

LOOOOOOOVED this skit! So excited to finally have a link to it. Thanks for posting it. I agree the skirt line was the best. Although, a little bit of me was expecting that it would be something about how she wants to have his baby or something and then show her belly.

Jon was so funny and adorable! Coldplay was amazing too! I never watch SNL [but I do watch Weekend Update on Thursday] because it lost it's appeal a long time ago; but I did watch for Jon and the only parts that made me laugh were where he was in it.

Francoise, I have to agree with you for best line of the night. "Blow people away..." Too awesome...

I kind of also liked the lines "Don't ask me. I'm just a Woman. I'm not allowed to own a watch." and "Blow people away anytime you say anything."

I loved him as host - it was so great seeing him in someting lighter! His James Mason was pretty right on and he handled himself very well in all the other skits. Plus, John and Elizabeth were great and Coldplay (woot!). A great episode.

I watched the show with some friends that don't watch Mad Men and I looked like a total obsessed freak. I started cheering when John Slattery and Elisabeth Moss showed up in that one skit and was absolutely losing it in the Don Draper skit with Amy Poehler. Liz4 - I totally agree, best line of the night. Or "drink and smoke CONSTANTLY".
