A Zou Bisou Bisou for Mad Men as Season Six premiere gets closer

Just like last season, Jon Hamm directed an episode of Mad Men's Season Six, which is slated to premiere on AMC April 7th at 10/9c. And thinking about the Season Five premiere, the double-feature of sorts "A Little Kiss," can't help but to bring to mind the already iconic "Zou Bisou Bisou" scene, in which Don Draper's new wife Megan (played by Jessica Pare) first surprises birthday boy Don, now age 40, with a birthday party at their dank New York City apartment, but follows up with a sexy serenade that delights and titillates everyone attending (and let's be honest, everyone watching as well)… except for Don.

Pare reflected on Hamm's directing acumen, telling Zap2it, "He's really funny and really interested. He obviously knows everybody on the crew, since it's been six seasons now, and that sort of camaraderie is really important to the feeling on the whole set. That's certainly the case when you're the director, plus he's an actor ... so for me, it's simple. There's never any feeling he's questioning my confidence or capabilities. It's an easy thing."

But come on, really, this is all just a prelude to an excuse to embed the Zou Bisou Bisou scene, if but to distract you for a few more moments during the final weeks leading up the new Mad Men season. Enjoy:

Jon Hamm did not direct the season five premiere, Jennifer Getzinger did.  There are many inaccuracies in your article. You should correct them.   A real geek.

Jack -- thanks for stopping by. And you are correct about S5 premiere -- Hamm was originally slated to direct it, but then got bumped to S0503. Because of Hamm's commitment as lead actor on the show it makes sense for him to direct the initial episode. Because of this and because he's directed the S6 premiere I got that bit wrong. My bad. 

Hope you'll keep coming back to TVGA.
