The Mad Men School of Seduction

As anticipation for the upcoming season of Mad Men continues to grow, I thought I’d pay tribute to those lotharios of Sterling Cooper. This video features almost every pickup line uttered between seasons 1-3.  Have you been having trouble with the ladies?  Well, take a cue from Campbell, Cosgrove, Kinsey, and, of course, the great Roger Sterling, among others.  In less than 3 minutes, you’ll have the skills to score any choice dame.  Mix yourself an Old Fashioned, light that Lucky Strike, and enjoy!

Oh, for God’s sake. We’re sorry it took us so long to promote the brilliance of this, by our Ryan Jones.
