T-minus five days until “Mad Men” is back on-air and this will get you pumped! Video artists Elisa Kreisinger and Marc Faletti have remixed the ladies of “Mad Men” singing a kickass mashup of The Supremes song “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” You’ve probably heard the song before — but you’ve never heard it like this.

Alison Brie is the cutest. And in this outfit she wore to the premiere of “Mad Men” earlier this week, she’s really channeled her character Trudy Campbell. But is it too much? Does she look costume-y instead of retro-inspired? What do you say?
Okay, so this dress, with just a bunch of side cut outs would have been great. Or just a bunch of weird ruffles on the bottom. Sure, I’d abide. But the combo of the two might just qualify for over-complicating what could be a very pretty garment. Either way, she’s a pretty bangin’ MILF, wouldn’t you say? And we’ll definitely be watching when “Mad Men” returns to AMC on March 25, stupid dress or no.
“One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, ‘He’s so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.’ To me that sums it up … I don’t want to waste any more of my life talking about it.”
– “Mad Men”‘s Elisabeth Moss opens up for the first time about her short marriage to “Saturday Night Live”/”Portlandia” comedian Fred Armisen in Page Six Magazine. Oooh, burn. As for whether the two keep in touch? “Oh, god, no,” Moss said. Yikes. [Page Six]
Elisabeth Moss: People are constantly asking if [Don Draper and Peggy Olsen are] gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen — that to me is really interesting and rarely done well.
Jon Hamm: People want to put us in a “Sam and Diane” box, but it’s about their mutual appreciation for the work. That’s where the material strikes its resonant chord, when it’s ostensibly about one thing and then it becomes about so much more. That’s the fun thing about Don and Peggy, and that’s the deeper thing about “Mad Men.”
If you thought this was the season that Don and Peggy were finally going to get together on “Mad Men,” you were wrong (again). Which is how it should be. [NYmag.com Vulture]
Every week it seems like there is new art for the “Mad Men” season five premiere, not that we mind. This is the “official” art and it sure is perplexing. Don Draper is staring at a pair of mannequins, including a naked female mannequin, and his own reflection in a department store window. What does it all mean?! Series creator Matt Weiner told The New York Times the ad is “a dreamlike image” and “a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be.” Well, that doesn’t help. “By the end of the season, I guarantee you’ll know what it is about,” Weiner promised. Hope so. [NY Times]

“Mad Men” returns from its eons-long hiatus on March 25. That gives us just a month to get back into all the couplings, breakups and make ups that Don Draper and pals were embroiled in. Luckily, the folks at Wired have created this handy relationship map — which includes trysts we’d like to see — to help get us back in the game.
I’m so accustomed to seeing penises scrawled on Reese Witherspoon’s face on those “This Means War” posters that it’s refreshing to see graffiti that’s not an ode to the male anatomy. Oh, I’m sorry. Are we not supposed to call it “graffiti”? Is it called “street art” because the doodles are on posters for “Mad Men,” which is a classy show? So be it. It’s “Mad Men” street art. And here are 10 that are pretty clever. [ONTD; Best Week Ever]
We’ve got another month and a half to go until season five of “Mad Men” starts on March 25, and fans can’t wait to find out where things stand with Don Draper, his family, and everyone else at Sterling Cooper Draper Price. We found just the thing to wear to a premiere party — this falling Draper pendant from Saucier Jewelry.
