Buzz Break: Hot Hamm Water


· It's the season three poster for Mad Men! I think the pool symbolizes Don Draper's struggle to keep his carefully coiffed head above water, on account of having drowned his coworkers. Spoiler alert?

· Russell Brand will be hosting the MTV Video Music Awards again this year. Yay, this will make it easier for MTV to do that thing they always do: tease this year's ceremony with jokes about last year's ceremony.

· "Christian Bale Looks Crack Cocaine Addicted," observes the heretofore-neutral JustJared.

· Gossip Girl stars Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford have suddenly realized that they have money and thus, no reason to live together.

· Lars von Trier explains that he met Antichrist's talking fox, personally, while in a trance induced from his shamanistic journeys. Why, that's how Michael Bay came up with Skids!


  • bess marvin, girl detective says:

    you'd think the "mad men" posters would be more creative being that the show is about advertising but alas, we are living in the end of ideas era, so carry on.

  • Kyle Buchanan says:

    Seriously, why are the MM campaigns always so lackluster? Last year's was blahsville.

  • icallthebigonebitey says:

    You don't need to be creative when you can just slap a picture of Jon Hamm in there. Anything else would be distracting.

  • JudgeFudge says:

    You guys, give the Mad Men poster a break. We haven't seen the series yet, so we don't know - maybe this could be a very literal representation of the action in the show. Like, the boys from Anderson Cooper have to do an ad for a time machine, and, with the sample machine they use to think up the pitch, they accidentally zap themselves back in time to the sinking of the Titanic, so the first thing they do, naturally, is sit and have a smoke and a think about the situation.
    Never underestimate the genius of Matthew Weiner, people.

  • Furious D says:

    1. This poster is all wet.
    2. His opening joke: "Didn't last year's host suck?"
    3. That's not Bale, it's Lindsay Lohan without her wig and spray on tan.
    4. Plus Ed was always leaving the toilet seat up.
    5. He had the shamanic vision after eating The Merciless Peppers of Quetzlzacatenango - Grown deep in the jungle primeval by the inmates of a Guatemalan insane asylum.

  • andreazuckerman-vasquez says:

    The only way Mad Men could get better is if Anderson Cooper were somehow involved. Though Anderson looks more like a Sterling than a Cooper.

  • sweetbiscuit says:

    Mmmmm, Hamm.

  • sweetbiscuit says:

    Oooh, wet Hamm.
    (You're right, it works.)

  • Kyle Buchanan says:

    My god, how did I miss the headline "Hot Hamm Water"?

  • JudgeFudge says:

    In an ideal world, Anderson Cooper would be the stand in for John Slattery. Nice catch!

  • Who outside of a Senate committee or an evening news anchor says "crack cocaine"? Just say "crack" and be done with it; the "crack cocaine" in the headline is jarring. God I'm a nerd...

  • Kyle Buchanan says:

    Oh, screw it. I'm changin' the headline!

  • hoffman says:

    Doesn't anyone want to call out the great Arrested Development reference?
