Sweet! Seth Meyers spoofs 'Mad Men' finale on 'Late Night'

April 8, 2014 at 8:43 AM ET

Handsome. Dashing. Smart. Successful. Many guys would probably love to be "Mad Men's" sexy protagonist Don Draper — and that includes "Late Night" host Seth Meyers.

With the critically acclaimed drama returning on Sunday for its seventh season, the comedian decided to put himself in Don's stylish shoes to poke fun at the drama with "a brand new" AMC show called "Bad Men" about advertising in the '60s. 

"I love Jon Hamm," Meyers admitted. "I don't think there's a better actor out there. But I do think the lead actor of this new show ... I don't know. Maybe he's a little bit better."

The talented star of Meyers' spoof? Why, Meyers himself, naturally! In the send-up, the comedian recreated — with himself as the ad man — one of the season six finale's most emotional scenes, when Don pitches what could be any child's sweet early memory of eating a Hershey's chocolate bar, before bringing the whole meeting down with the depressing truth about how he really grew up.

Though Don's revelation in front of his colleagues and clients may have left a bad taste in everyone's mouth, Meyers' twist on the chocolate-bar pitch wasn't particularly tasty either — but it was good for a chuckle!

"Late Night With Seth Meyers" airs weeknights at 12:35. "Mad Men" season seven premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. on AMC.
