Mad Men meets Walking Dead: Don Draper devours his secretary as ad agency is invaded by zombies in hilarious spoof
11:08 GMT, 6 April 2012
It's 1963, and zombies have taken over Madison Avenue. At Mad Men's ad agency Stirling Cooper Draper Pryce, Don Draper lunches on the severed head of his secretary, while Pete Campbell snacks on a grisly mess of intestines in a breakfast meeting.
It's Mad Men, but not as we know it. Satirists Barely Political have made their own version of the hit television show – fusing it with elements of American post-Apocalyptic TV show Walking Dead.
They describe it as 'your favorite zombie apocalypse survivors and the undead handsome ad execs of the 1960s who love to eat them.'
Another secretary dispatched… Joan admonishes Don for lunching on his latest assistant
… while Don berates Campbell for devouring a grisly snack of intestines during their morning meeting
The result is a hilarious mash-up
spoof that sees Mad Men's favourite characters take on the role of the
undead as they parody storylines from the series.
world is a different place now. People are changing into hordes of
undead brain suckers,' Don says, by way of introduction, while smoking a
severed finger. 'We need to change the way we do things'
Campbell, who is greedily devouring intestines, flinging blood and shreds of flesh asunder, agrees.
'Don's right. Eighty nine per cent of the people on earth are now zombies, and we should exploit that,' he says.
'Jesus Campbell, put those intestines
down. It's 9.15 in the morning,' Don shouts over at Campbell.
But it is not long before Don is
getting his own pound of flesh, after he devours his own secretary, a
funny take on the fact that in genuine Mad Men plotlines, Don is frequently
reprimanded by Joan for having affairs with or quickly dispatching
Gory: Don sucks on a severed finger instead of a cigarette throughout the spoof
Not another secretary! Don eats Roger's girl
Roger Stirling: 'If you're going to eat someone, at least make it my wife!'
'Mr Draper, the Lucky Strike people
have been trying to get hold of you all day,' Joan admonishes Don as
he sits at his desk.
'I was having lunch,' he replies.
'Why didn't your secretary answer the phone' Joan asks.
'She was lunch,' Don retorts, holding up the bloody severed head of a blonde.
'Not another one,' she sighs. 'You don't know how many girls I've had to train this month already.'
Stirling makes an appearance, shown in his familiar pose, reclining on
the sofa in his office. 'Come on Don, eat your own secretaries!'
Stirling yells, as Don is shown gorging on yet another female staff
'And if you're going to eat someone, at least make it my wife!'
Battle: The Walking Dead characters are deployed to clear the agency of zombies
spoof Mad Men cast is joined by the main characters of Walking Dead,
who have broken into the Stirling Cooper Draper Pryce with the purpose
of overcoming the zombie invasion.
Deputy sheriff Andrew Lincoln says that 'walkers' (the name for zombies in the TV horror series) have overtaken the ad agency.
'The conference room just isn't safe
any more!' he cries. 'It's the Fifties. no wait, now it's the Sixties…
and there are walkers everywhere!'
And so the action continues. The
actors play the parts with aplomb – especially the actor cast to play
Pryce, who gets the plummy Brit's accent spot on.
redhead cast as Joan Holloway is a less flattering likeness, with the
spoof actress's bountiful curves poking fun at Red's pneumatic
appearance in the show.
the graphic introductory sequence has been adapted to have a zombie
theme. In the spoof, the man falling to the floor from the office window
is quickly attacked by a zombie who drains the blood from his neck,
turning him into the undead in the process.
