Mad Men, the award-winning AMC Cable series about the lives and influence of advertising executives in the 1960s, will enter its seventh and last season on April 13, the Sunday before Passover.
Mad Mentsch, a parody produced by Jewbellish, a Jewish comedy web site, is a carefully scripted short takeoff of the popular TV series with an attention to detail that includes the opening title sequence.
We don't know if Mad Mentsch will last seven seasons, but they've produced four episodes so far. The main character in this series is Don Dreyfus, a Don Draper look-alike. If you're not a fan of Mad Men, you probably won't get some of the satire, but it might get you to check out the series. It's available on Netflix and probably elsewhere. We're still catching up on the show and are starting to watch Season 5.
Enjoy the first two episodes below.
