'Don Draper' is trying to come up with the perfect ad for Happy Honey Bear while teaching kids about three different feelings.
"Mad Men" becomes the subject of parody for PBS' "Sesame Street" and the characters have been translated into muppet forms. Presented by EMC instead of AMC, the skit sees Don Draper holding a meeting for a honey ad with two of his execs.
Through the ads, the program designed for children wants to show how feelings of "mad", "sad" and "happy" look like. Without leaving a little easter egg for adults to laugh at, Draper praised his agents after finding the right ad by saying, "Good job, sycophants!".
This is not the first time "Sesame Street" pays homage to a primetime series. In August 2006, it released an episode of "Law and Order: Special Letters Unit" where the detectives are hunting for a missing letter M. The piece particularly makes fun of the "chunk-chunk" sound which is iconic to "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit".
