A Look Back at the Funniest Moments on Mad Men

Posted by on

It’s the end of an era — bygone or not. This Sunday marks the final episode of the critically acclaimed, award-gobbling powerhouse Mad Men. Just shy of 100 episodes, the series captured all the major social, political, business, and sexual issues of the ’60s and ’70s and deftly related them to the topics of today. Without a doubt, Don, Peggy, Roger, Joan, and the rest will be sorely missed and will leave behind a heart-shaped hole in our programming schedules.

But as the seventh season draws to a close, and with it the lives of a few dozen characters as familiar as close family members, we take a look back at the 10 funniest and goofiest moments immortalized in animated GIF form.

10. Peggy’s Personal Roller Derby

10. Peggy Skating
Backed by a boozy Roger on the organ, an equally tipsy Peggy glides across the frame on a pair of roller skates as carefree as a pixie. Encapsulating the dizzy, grinning state right before passing out, it’s the perfect GIF to express a fun and innocent night of binge drinking.

9. Roger Finds a Soulmate

9. Roger Drinking Bird
And speaking of drinking, Mad Men did little of anything but. Set in a time when folks washed down their corn flakes with gin, the show was essentially a substance abuse group meeting with a wardrobe budget. And here, Roger finally finds a drinking buddy that could actually keep up.

8. Ken Busts a Move

8. Ken Dancing
Feeling the high of a speed-based cocktail, this tap dancing Ken Cosgrove GIF is a delight. Appropriate for caffeine-fueled all-nighters or the tackling a bevy of errands with the energy of a freight train, this image celebrates the elation one feels after finishing all your work for the day.

7. Pete Gets Decked

7. Pete Punched
Second only to Tyrion slapping Joffrey, this GIF of Pete Campbell getting punched nails that cathartic Schadenfreude of seeing a disliked character getting hurt. And after insulting Lane Pryce, cheating on his wife, and being just a general douche, we’d gladly let this image loop more than a few times.

6. Roger Shimmies Down the Hall

6. Roger Dancing
With no shortage of stunningly beautiful women on the show, who would’ve thought the most lithely sensual dance would be delivered by John Slattery? Seductively singing “Frère Jacques” with the passion of a French escort, Roger can clearly hold his own against an office filled with conga-dancing dames.

5. Don’s Mock Crying

Don wah wah gif

Got a friend who’s complaining about their $80,000 job or having to clean their 3,200-square-foot apartment? Well, here’s a GIF that could add a little introspection to their Facebook wall. Succinct and to the point, its only downside would be the image’s prevalence in online political arguments.

4. Don’s Actual Crying

But as snark gives way to sincerity, occasionally we need a picture that depicts our protective walls crumbling as we surrender to despair. That, and it’s pretty funny to see Jon Hamm weeping. Even for someone who oozes cool masculinity out of every pore, sometimes a guy just has to turn on the water works.

3. Pete Takes a Tumble

3. Pete Falling
We all know what it’s like to have tempers flare beyond our equilibrium, and this GIF of a furious Pete stumbling down the stairs is a fantastic representation of being “too angry to stand.”

2. Roger’s Liquid Lunch

2. Roger Vomiting
Who hasn’t overindulged a bit during a work lunch? We can all relate to being a little too tipsy on the way back to the office, right? And how many times have we regurgitated our entire meal and drink orders in front of important clients? Too many to count! So for all of us who’ve blown multimillion-dollar deals because of one bourbon too many, this GIF’s for you!

1. The Lawnmower Reaction

1. Lawnmower
Arguably the most memorable moment in Mad Men’s entire run also makes for one fantastic animated GIF. Something as small and incidental as a runaway riding lawnmower driven inside an office can completely change the way a man walks for the rest of his life. It also ain’t too pretty for the bystanders drenched with an arterial spray. Still, as horrific surprises go, this one’s pretty damn funny.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
