If you actually won a walk-on role on an episode of “Mad Men,” wouldn’t you be hyperventilating too heavily to do Sterling Cooper justice?
Probably, but apply to Banana Republic’s contest anyway! Starting today, upload a photo of yourself decked out in righteous ’60s style on AMC’s website, using a code number from Banana Republic stores before August 11. The lucky winner will receive a $1,000 gift certificate to Banana Republic and a scene-stealing cameo on “Mad Men.” So far the contest entries, available for viewing online, look like a lot of cheesy Hollywood-wannabes who uploaded head shots which aren’t in authentic ’60s style, so your chances look good! [Simcha, this looks like a contest for you! -- Editor]
But, if upstaging Don Draper isn’t your thing, whittle away the afternoon on MadMenYourself.com (Adobe Flash Player 10 required), where you can create your own “Mad Men”-style avatar and deck her out in ’60s threads. A fur stole? A pencil skirt? Cat eye glasses. We’re so on it.
