In a hilariously awesome clip that went viral last week, Internet users laughed at Jon Hamm appearing on the 1995 game show The Big Date.

And, because he may truly be the coolest celebrity on the planet, Jon Hamm then stopped by The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and laughed at the same footage himself.

After watching the clip - in which Hamm promises his potential date “an evening of total fabulosity” - Ferguson asked if the woman picked Hamm.

"Oh, no, she did not,” Hamm said. “Would you have picked me?"

Not then, no. But now? We'd pick Hamm for pretty much anything.

NOTE: Mad Men Season 7 premieres this Sunday night on AMC. Prepare yourselves, people!

As Don Draper, Jon Hamm always knows just what to say to the ladies. Sadly, it turns out in real life, the actor wasn't always so smooth. 

A 25-year-old Jon was a contestant on the shortlived dating show The Big Date in 1996 and the best that can be said about his appearance is that we can all be thankful he's honed his pick-up line skills in the years since.

Asked by the show's host what he would do to impress a girl on a first date, Jon replied, "Well, start off with some fabulous food, some fabulous conversation, and end it with a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulosity."

Yikes, Hey, the 90s were a different time. Unfortunately, Jon's "fabulosity" speech was corny even back then.

While it's a little unsettling to hear such lameness spoken in the voice of a legendary ad man, the clip is worth watching if only for Jon's grunge band hair and high-waisted pants.

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:

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?!?
