Hitman: Agent 47 (Reiner Bajo)

Agent 47 started out as a video game character, but in anticipation of Mad Men’s series finale on May 17, the spy gets a Don Draper-style reboot in this animated clip, exclusively released to Nerdist.

The video’s color scheme and animation style pay homage to the AMC drama, while incorporating elements of Hitman: Agent 47. A faceless suited character drifts through the city, sips a drink and grabs his briefcase amid hidden 47s, images of the movie’s cast, and symbols significant to Hitman: Agent 47.

The spy thriller features Rupert Friend in the title role (originally filled by Paul Walker), alongside Hannah Ware and Zachary Quinto. Aleksander Bach makes his feature film debut with the movie, which follows Agent 47 as he tries to destroy the head of a secret organization, who also happens to be the father of his love interest (Ware.)

Hitman: Agent 47 hits theaters Aug. 21.
