On Thursday 17 December, 2009 local channel, FX hosted a Mad Men Casting Party at FINDS to find stars for their commercial to publicize the launch of the show on local tv.
After finding Season One tough going, I am now totally addicted to the US tv series Mad Men! The witty office banter, the brooding good looks of John Hamm and of course the fabulous 1960’s costumes and set designs (they even make smoking look cool again).
Encouraging participants to dress up as their favourite character from the show, FX spotters picked the best from the crowd to go into two rounds, even if weren’t picked, anyone in vintage garb was allowed a free Chivas Regal cocktail, with a range named after the Mad Men characters. The ‘Don Draper’ even came with nitrogen gases!
I channeled my best Betty Draper and made the final six, but unfortunately did not win anything 😦
