I wonder what Jon Hamm would think if he would read the title of this video and watch it...

Coward and a deserter, yet more manly?
Michael Sieger (14 days ago)
Don is a pathetic man whore and hopeless drunk who is perpetually lonely and often suicidal. I think you missed the entire point of the show
LSSJ (17 days ago)
I had a hard time placing the character during the entire show. Yes he is a talented creative director. But at the same time he is portrayed as an extremely insecure con man who also hates his job. I feel the two arent really possible in the real world, and that this type of character wouldnt really exist outside a screen. I think he was created more to exemplify some themes (social alienation, 60s values, advertising as a business, etc) than to be real.
Rissover (20 days ago)
....did we even watch the same show? why would ANYONE want to emulate Don after watching even just the first season. And honestly #3 was just an example of him fucking up while drunk and high on his fame
Angel CityGirl (24 days ago)
People knocking don here about him being a cad, sexist, egotistical completely miss the point. The reason we love don so much is he is all those things, sexy, egotistical, a cheater but he is also deeply deeply flawed which makes him relatable and ultimately makes him human. There will never be another show like mad men. TV at an art form level.

George Louis is the CREATION of the 1/4 of Don Draper. The 3/4 is pure George Louis who really is a man who is a face of esquire magazine and did multiple things for business in the 60's. Even MTV today is started by George Louis.

Don Draper's a very cool guy ,but that doesn't make him more manly than say, my grandfather ,who fought in the WW2 and took care of his family,like a man should, after he got home .Being cool DOES NOT equal manliness.

Eh, Canadian Gamer (1 year ago)
One can still say Don Draper is a coward. I mean yeah he has a tough exterior, he's cool, confident, and collective. That's his life as a professional who is good at what he does. But what about his personal life? He has abandonment issues, which is why he takes comfort with more than one woman, and the moment things start bothering him, he runs away.
aa357 (1 year ago)
did you even watch number 3? he was embarrassingly drunk and started impulsively remembering horrible slogans he had heard in the past, then tried to change it once he sobered up from his 3 day binge. don't see how that makes him manly

You people do realize that Don Draper is a lying, cheating, cowardly, drunk douche bag of a human being who should not be emulated or looked up to in any way. Don't get me wrong Mad Men is an excellent show and easily one of my favorites. But the whole point of his character is how on the surface he seems perfect but in reality is the antithesis of what a man should be
Stu Pot (8 months ago)

Don worries too much about what other people think. I can't remember how many times he justifies his actions by saying "people do this" or "that's what people do". He is a deserter to both korean and his past.

J (2 years ago)
A real man doesn't have affairs with other women. Especially, if their married as well. But, these things go on. And, those whose been on the receiving end, watched it for that reason, alone. Everyone is curious.  I call cheaters: hound dogs. That's exactly what they are. If you run with dogs, you're going to get fleas. And, as far as moral high ground, that's me when it comes to this. It's still going on. That has never changed. It's always been like this and always will be. Now, there's just more women doing it. And, yeah, I have respect enough for myself, that I could never go with another man. I salute all men & women you know who they are and have enough self-esteem, they don't have to do this. We know who we are. Seems like so many don't or don't care.

The Sunglasses that Don Wore were the same type that Ron Moss (Ridge Forrester #1) wore on The Bold & The Beautiful when it first started in 1987.
laminage (2 years ago)
I think we love Don because he gets to do say and act the way we've all wanted to act at one time or another.  I love the Slow Motion Scenes where he's putting on his Sunglasses.  If we are lucky enough to have just for one day an occasion where we feel we own it like a boss we're it's "Our" World and everyone else is just living in it.

Would Dick Whitman have been any happier living his  'authentic' life back in Hicksville carrying all that garbage he grew up with in his head? Yeah nowadays he could spend a fortune on analysis or anti-depressives but men from his era self medicated in different ways. I think there's a percentage of 'modern' men who have never been out of their comfort zone and feel content pointing out the flaws of Draper era men rather than accept their own shortcomings on the masculinity scale. I mean if our way of dealing with things is so enlightened why are male suicide rates so high? I guess we're not as smart as we think we are.

stuckupcurlyguy (3 years ago)
You're really missing the point AskMen. Don Draper is a construct, nothing he says or does is genuine until he cracks. He's a person defining himself by his outer shell rather than his inner essence. It's because he is completely invulnerable that he's so very emasculated - nothing he does comes from a place of genuine, free desire, it's all crafted to meet someone else's standard. The opening of the show is him falling to his demise for heaven's sake. There is a level of irony you are completely failing to understand here. Not surprising given that your magazine profits off the exploitation of male insecurities with watch advertisements and rubbish sections like "power" and "money".

Dan R (3 years ago)
Don Draper is a great character. He is not necessarily a great person, but the way that we are shown his flaws and downfalls as well as his badass moments (similarly in ways to Heisenberg) is what makes the show so great.
9ertsch (3 years ago)
There is a yawning deceitfulness at the centre of Dick Whitman's life, which is why he can never be deep down content.  Reinventing yourself is lovely as an idea, but in practice the cracks always open up, sooner or later.

First off, I think it is tine that Ask change its name to match its pronunciation. The brand name should be Ax for men. Second, Don Draper is a sociopath.

He's actually a massive pussy, he is threatened by others success (acts like a surly bitch when Megan becomes successful in her show), has to lie his way through life (I don't even mean about his childhood but all the lies he tells to everyone around him like a whimpy bitch), is a massive hypocrite about everything (calls Betty a whore when he sleeps around like no ones business). That ain't no man to me! I'd rather have a nice, honest goof then Don Draper. Jon Hamm on the other hand... NICE!

TheBadLiutenant (3 years ago)
The guys at AskMen are totally missing the point, and also everyone else who tries to emulate Draper. Yes, he has tremendous masculine drive, energy, and confidence. But he's also a self-pitying, loser, sexist alcoholic. Whenever his macho facade falls off, it's clear that he's also a wounded little boy with trust issues, misogny, narcissism, sadomasochism, and an eternally scarred ego. He's damaged goods, an absolute anti-hero, this is why I love him as a dramatic character. So complex and complicated. The determination, the charisma, the creativity, the social savvyness and the seduction skills are great qualityes and are to be admired and emulated, but forget the rest. The apple is shiny but the core is rotten.
evillink1 (3 years ago)
To be fair, he honestly seems to be trying to turn a new leaf this past season.  He knows he's been fucking up, and at least he's trying to fix it.
Malachi Coleman (3 years ago)
You clearly don't know what "loser" means. Him having trust issues is good and who doesn't? And pretty much everything Cheryl said.
baddoggie101 (3 years ago)
I saw nothing of self-pitying behavior in the show. "Loser" is just a vacuous judgment. He is portrayed as less sexist than other men of the time. Simply because he enjoys sex does not make him sexist.
LucisFerre1 (3 years ago)
*"misogny"* Meaning he was a product of his times.

10 reasons why don draper's head is huge
LeLu3 (3 years ago)
#3 shows him drunkenly plagiarizing from a man who he had refused to hire because he didn't like his work. That makes him manly? The literal next scene is Peggy lambasting him for it and later in the episode he's forced to hire the guy.

Thankfully, I walked away unscarred. But in the end, I can't tell whether you did more bad then good because I learned how NOT to be a man from AskMen. This video couldn't be a more perfect example.  If you happen to be a satire on the roles men play in society, then I'm the dumb one for not figuring it all out and, please, continue exposing.

Hes not a good man. In fact he is an evil man
MegaDonGallo (4 years ago)
I guess 'good' and 'bad' are a matter of opinion. The nuanced writing of Mad Men, in itself a realistic reflection of existentialism, suggests a grey area where definitive labels are, at best, difficult.
Tom Lee (4 years ago)
His actions make him a bad man. I dont wish to be a bad man. Its simple as that. He is a fascinating character to watch but not one to become
MegaDonGallo (4 years ago)
He's not evil, he's amoral - much like Tony Soprano and, to a lesser extent, Jimmy McNulty. You love him because of his imperfections, you watch him to find his faults. You aspire to be him, but you want to be a better person.
Tom Lee (4 years ago)
+jmarklawton i dont like defining life as grey or black or white, thats not elaborate. and i dont think we're all complicit, we're all imperfect. therefore its not that we all make compromises, its that we therefore HAVE to make compromises
Tom Lee (4 years ago)
+jmarklawton what defines you are not your motives or your beliefs or your thoughts or friend or clothes or bank account, what defines you as a person are your actions. don draper may be lonely and confused and hurt and depressed and also very smart, but at the end of the day he does evil things which makes you an evil person.
