One more reason to love Jon Hamm!

It'd be difficult to suppress positive vibes for a video that has Mad Men star Jon Hamm stopping his convertible for a teensy, hitch-hiking blue yeti, and then taking him on a cross-country adventure. And, what's more, the song the video supports--Swedish trio Herman D√ľne's simple, poppy "Tell Me Something I Don't Know"--is extremely easy on the ears. Hamm never bores me with whatever he does OUTSIDE of the Mad Men universe; it's always nice to be reminded that he's really a light-hearted guy. I smiled pretty broadly throughout watching this piece, maybe because I'm a sucker for puppets (I like the little cooing sound the yeti makes, and love that shot of the yeti's hand being slapped away from the radio buttons). This clip, charmingly directed by Toben Seymour is also one more reason to like the more-reliable-than-not Funny or Die website. Anyway, just thought you guys might love this...

Totally adorable and Jon Hamm is charming, as is the yeti. I also love him outside of MM showing off his lighter side. He has such traditional heroic looks that when he plays cute it's utterly winning. Will he ever find a movie role that trades on that quality? Unless they start remaking clever Cary Grant movies, I wonder...he'd be great in a redo of "Bringing Up Baby" or like that, wouldn't he? Thanks so much for finding and posting this, Dean! It's perfect!! Great to have you back here!

Yeah, I think he'd be a GREAT modern-day Grant type---now all they gotta do is start making movies like those again.

Good to be back. I'm getting a lot more writing done these days. I have a bunch of ideas planned specifically for Flaming Nose. I just hope I don't get distracted.
