In honor of the Mad Men Season 4 premiere this month (July 25th -- set your DVRs!), every Friday leading up to the fated night I'll be running a post related to the show and/or its actors. Today comes a short, fantastic video (via AMC) counting down the "rules" of Mad Men leading up to Season 4. Creator/writer/director Matt Weiner does a superb job of dissecting the basic elements (or rules) that make Men Men so brilliant and shows how those rules will carry into the new season:
My favorite rule? "Only boring people are bored." So true, Betty. So true.
And if it's been a while since you've Mad Men-ized yourself (or you simply have no clue what I'm talking about), AMC has a new "Mad Men Yourself" up on their website in honor of the new season! New backgrounds, new clothes and new accessories (because let's face it, there's something so devastatingly handsome about a man smoking a cigarette in a Brooks Brothers suit. At least in cartoon form.)
