Teenage girls, please don’t take advice from Don Draper. He’ll tell you to drink and smoke constantly, disappear for weeks at a time, and lie to everyone about everything; that may have worked for a powerful man in the ’60s, but you’ll probably be less successful if you embrace Don’s philosophy now. (Also, that whole ethos isn’t really working for Draper himself anymore, either.)
However, you can and should take advice from Jon Hamm. The Mad Men star recently followed in Paul Rudd’s footsteps by making an “Ask a Grown Man” video for Rookie – and it’s chock-full of expert guidance. Check it out below to see the dapper dude urge girls to embrace their personal style, wait longer than three weeks to do it with a fellow teen, and fart with abandon. Viva la Hamm!
And even if you’re not a teenage girl, watching this clip is worth it to see how Hamm concludes his advice-giving session: “I’m 41 years old. Doesn’t mean you have to pay attention to me, but it’s probably in your best interest. Okay. Um, you’re probably all too young to watch Mad Men, so, I don’t know. Enjoy The Hunger Games.” Way to drop the imaginary mic, man.
