15 Funniest Mad Men Fan Art Masterpieces



By Emily Schmidt on March 22, 2012

When Mad Men premiered in 2007, America saw the show's toleration of sexism and constant day-drinking, and got hooked faster than you can light a Lucky Strike. Fans have waited a year and a half for the Season 5 premiere on Sunday, and made some incredible fan art in the meantime. So loosen your tie, pour yourself a tumbler of scotch, and enjoy the funniest Mad Men fan art our secretaries could find.

Mad Men Subway Ads Get Remixed

Minimalist ads for the Season 5 premiere cropped up all over Manhattan, from tall buildings that gave them a 9/11-y vibe to subway ads with tons of white space. The subway posters quickly became fill-in-the-picture coloring books, and fans came up with a lot more than just Superman to take up the space. Of course this Superman tag is inspired: it's period-appropriate, it's immediately recognizable, and why not make Lois Lane the newest SCDP secretary?

Don and Lane's Man Date

Aw, theyʼre friends! In the third episode of Season 4, Don takes Lane Pryce out for a night on the town. Sure, the show is mainly about advertising and relationships and sex and scandals, but itʼs also a little bit about bromance. And in Mad Men's case, bromantic evenings usually involve hookers.

Pete Campbell Has No Heart

Definitely not man date material, Pete feels no real feelings. Some would call him a sociopath, others might simply call him a robot, and the latter is much easier to convey in this funny art. Whether heʼs blackmailing people in the office, power-tripping his wife, or simply existing, itʼs clear that for Pete Campbell, human emotions do not compute.

The Mad Men D&D Alignment Chart

"You are sitting in an office at a Madison Avenue advertising agency in the early evening. Peggy can't think of a pitch for Samsonite luggage. Do you: have a cigarette, have a drink, answer the urgent message from California, go see the Ali-Liston bout at a bar, or make Peggy stay all night and help you come up with something?" (Answer: you do all of those things.)

When I think about my typical fate as a child, I'm sure my best friends would've fought over Betty and Joan and I would've been stuck with Peggy. Watch as your son or daughter explores the many torrid affairs of Mad Men with these limbless versions of the characters! Batteries and cigarettes not included.
