VSL// Something to hold you over till Mad Men starts

Attention all Mad Men fans in need of a fix: The new season might still be months away, but thanks to the hilarious Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis Web short on the site Funny or Die, you can catch the man who plays Don Draper playing a very different kind of straight man than the one we’re used to from AMC.

Zach Galifianakis (you’ll recognize him from films like The Hangover and HBO’s Bored to Death) is the host of this Web series, which is exactly as it sounds: an interview conducted between two (somewhat sad-looking) ferns. But Galifianakis is…shall-we-say more hostile than the average talk show host. With Hamm, he asks questions such as “You’re in The Day the Earth Stood Still. Why?” and “Does it make you sick when you look in the mirror to see how handsome you are?” Hamm handles it all with aplomb (natch), and we suggest you take the three minutes to watch. (And if have you have more time to spare, check out some of the other Between Two Ferns guests—we particularly enjoyed the most recent Ben Stiller appearance.)
