Meshugene Men (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Mad Men" is a fantastic show in its own right, but possibly better are the parodies it spawns. College Humor and SNL have already gotten in on the action and now the Shushan Channel has made this video to promote their upcoming Purim show at 92Y Tribeca.

Co-written by HuffPost's own Rob Kutner, and starring (among others) Amy Sedaris and Matthew Walton, the group imagines the advertising world in the Sixties at a Jewish ad agency trying to sell Mayo to god's chosen people.

It takes shots at the antisemitism of the time, but also pokes fun at the dark and brooding period show by replacing cigarettes with menorah candles and real booze with Manischewitz.
