Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm photobombing unsuspecting people in NYC?

If you think that sounds like comedic brilliance, you're spot on. The two teamed up last night for a segment that delighted viewers and passersby alike.

Fallon and his crew set up a camera on top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

"We asked people if they wanted to get their photo taken, and we told them it was for the NBC Top of the Rock website. We were lying," Fallon explained.

They did give the participants pictures, but with an added bonus: In addition to the views of the Big Apple, the actor and Tonight Show host were in them.

"It was super fun," Fallon said. "Jon Hamm's a great guy."

The two struck various poses, including the confused stare, the happy smile, the jump and the "Lady and the Tramp" ... in which they double teamed a sandwich.

Just watch it. It's worth it.

Then watch Mad Men online at TV Fanatic, and see below for more classic photobombs from celebrities since that became a thing they all do:

This just in: People apparently hate George Clooney. And Tom Hanks. And even Matt Damon.

Indeed, some of the biggest stars on the planet were featured on the latest edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live's Celebrities Read Mean Tweets.

It's a grand television tradition and it's one the the explains thusly:

"We like to shine a light on those who post cruel and horrible comments on Twitter. People can be vicious, and it hurts. To raise awareness and to maybe make people think twice before they post something awful, once again we've assembled a group of famous faces..."

Are these hate-filled Internet users the same folks who posted racist Tweets in response to the controversial Super Bowl Coke commercial? Probably.

Watch the newest edition of this feature now and then check out a few past installments as well:

Jon Hamm, whose perpetually-smoking Mad Men character Don Draper has brought him many an Emmy nod, has not been putting on his raspy voice.

The 42-year-old actor is set to undergo throat surgery next week after allegedly coughing up blood recently, according to multiple celebrity news reports.

His rep says that the "routine outpatient procedure to remove a single polyp from his throat." Earlier reports suggested multiple polyps in the region.

Once that abnormal tissue is removed, he should recover fully.

Meanwhile, a report in Life & Style claims the surgery news is not new for Hamm's Mad Men castmates, who have been discussing it in recent weeks.

In any case, we wish Jon a speedy and full recovery.

Mad Men has always been uncomfortable about race - rather intentionally, one could presume, given that the show is all about keeping up appearances while everything falls apart.

The “white picket fence” imagery was hugely important for the show’s first few seasons, but now, as Mad Men’s characters have moved into the city (and into ugly apartments with weird recessed living rooms) so too have the stuffy edifices of the suburbs disappeared.

So while "The Flood," which takes place on the day Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed, echoes the season 3 episode "The Grown-Ups," which centered on the Kennedy Assassination, the subtext is entirely different.

Both Kennedy and King represented hope; both were profoundly eminent and meaningful figures from the 60’s.

ESPN is about to get a whole lot more handsome.

Jon Hamm announced this morning on Live with Kelly and Michael that he will be hosting the 2013 ESPYs, a fact later confirmed by show producer Maura Mandt in a statement:

Handsome Jon Hamm

“The ESPYS is designed to showcase the year’s best sports moments in a sharp, fun and entertaining manner and Jon’s the perfect host for this year’s show. His appearances on shows like 30 Rock and SNL show that humor and creativity are two of his main strengths. The combination of Jon’s dry wit with his passion for sports will give fans a unique and original view of the year in sports."

Don't get Jon Hamm wrong: the actor understands he's a public figure.

He isn't complaining about the attention he's received as a result of his beloved role of Don Draper on Mad Men.

But the 42-year old tells the latest issue of Rolling Stone that the recent fascination over rumors that he's well-endowed (down there!) are "a little rude."

“They’re called ‘privates’ for a reason," Hamm says. "Lay off. I mean, it’s not like I’m a fu*king lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world.

"But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my cock, I feel like that wasn’t part of the deal… But whatever. I guess it’s better than being called out for the opposite.”

The man makes a very good point. A couple of them, in fact.

Mad Men Season 6, meanwhile, premieres on April 7.

Jon Hamm randomly and sleazily stars in Aimee Mann's new music video for "Labrador," which is filmed as a remake of Til Tuesday's 1985 hit "Voices Carry."

The video begins with a “behind-the-scenes” look from the Mad Men star, who portrays the song's real writer and director, Tom Scharpling. Confused yet?

Mann plays along in the video, basically saying she was duped into obliging the director. With that debonair mustache, it's hard to fault the singer-songwriter.

Watch the weirdness below (plus the original song for comparison):

On Mad Men, Jon Hamm - as Don Draper, of course - gives advice to companies on how best to pitch their product. He's a master salesman.

But, in real life, can the Emmy Award nominee make the same impression on teenage girls in search of answers regarding love, sex, fashion and farting? He attempts to do so in "Ask a Grown Man," a Web Series sponsored by Rookie magazine.

"The world is your oyster," Hamm tells one young lady, unsure what to do about a male flip-flopper. "You'll be just fine. Don't define yourself with who wants to get with you. I'm sure you're a lovely person."

Watch the hilarious video now for more dating gems:

Seriously. First, he rips Kim Kardashian. Now he passes along words of wisdom to the loveless and confused. Can Jon Hamm get any cooler?!?

Incredibly, hilariously, and totally awesomely, Jon Hamm is apparently at it again.

In an interview with Time Out London, the actor was asked about his status as a sex symbol and told the publication:

“The sexy thing is so ephemeral and meaningless other than in the world of selling magazines. Who cares, when it's reduced to just that? You might as well be a Kardashian and have a sex tape.”

Yes! Burn!

  • A Total Hamm
  • Kardashian, Kim

This dig, of course, follows Hamm's reference to Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian as "idiots" who serve as examples of how stupidity is rewarded in our culture. He's mostly stuck by these comments, too.

Jonathan Cheban (we know: who?!?) also upped the ante this week by saying his friend is more popular than the multiple-time Emmy winner.

Whose side are you on in this feud?

Just when it seemed like the world's most unexpected feud was dying down, Jonathan Cheban has stepped in to voice his take on Kim Kardashian's war of words with Jon Hamm.

How does the random reality star and hanger-on feel about the Mad Men actor dissing his BFF as an example of stupidity in our culture?

Words We Never Thought We'd Write: Are you on Team Cheban or Team Hamm?

"I think Jon Hamm needs to just shut up and stop being such a mad man!" Cheban said at an Ocean Drive party last night. "He needs to mind his own business, because Kim works hard. They do different things - it's a whole different world."

Cheban added - and we're not making this up - that Kim Kardashian is both more popular than Jon Hamm and will be relevant for longer than the Emmy winner.

"Put Jon Hamm in a mall, and more people will go up to the people working at the Burger King than they will to him. Bring Kim to a mall and there will be a riot. They're in two different businesses. Kim's pop culture and what people like.

"It's a lot of work, and she's here to stay. Let's see where he is after Mad Men."

Kardashian, for her part, has mostly taken the high road in this unexpected rivalry. She's too busy posing topless on Twitter to really respond.
