Zach Galifianakis: Hi, my name is Zach Galifianakis
and this is another
Zach Galifianakis: edition of Between Two Terns.
I'm your host, Zach Galifianakis
Zach Galifianakis: And my guest today is John Hamm.
John Hamm: Hi.
Zach: Am I saying that right?
John: Yeah.
Zach Galifianakis: My guest is John Hamm.
He's on a show called Mad Men on AMC.
Zach Galifianakis: Which, um, AMC. What's that stand for?
John Hamm: It doesn't stand for anything
anymore. They just call it AMC.
Zach Galifianakis: Oh, OK.
John Hamm: It's like KFC.
Zach Galifianakis: That stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken.
John Hamm: Not anymore.
Zach Galifianakis: Who says that?
John Hamm: They don't call themselves
that anymore.
Zach Galifianakis: The next thing is that you're going
to tell me that the KKK doesn't
mean anything to you.
John Hamm: Well.
Zach Galifianakis: You're in The Day the
Earth Stood Still.
John Hamm: Yes.
Zach Galifianakis: Why?
John Hamm: Good question.
Zach Galifianakis: I certainly don't like to make fun of
people's last names because my last
Zach Galifianakis: name is funny sounding, but does
it get on your nerves
Zach Galifianakis: when people make jokes
about your last name?
John Hamm: Well, it's, you know, it's
sort of easy.
Zach Galifianakis: Is your middle name honey-baked?
Have you ever
Zach Galifianakis: thought about, for show
business, changing your name from John Hamm
Zach Galifianakis: to something like John
Sausage or Stewart Turkeylink?
(sound of a turkey gobbling)
Zach Galifianakis: Mad Men is a show about
people in their early sixties?
John Hamm: Um, no, it's set in the early Sixties.
Zach Galifianakis: Oh, it's not people in their sixties.
John Hamm: No, no, no. That's a
different show.
Zach Galifianakis: Yeah, but my, this uh, says
about people in their early sixties.
John Hamm: That just says, do you like websites?
Zach Galifianakis: Do you like websites?
John Hamm: Sure. Yeah.
Zach Galifianakis: Yeah, I heard that you like websites.
John Hamm: Where did you hear that?
Zach Galifianakis: On a website. So tell me
about Madmen, Mad Men.
John Hamm: Well, it's a great show.
We're really proud of it.
John Hamm: Like I said, it's set in the
's, in the advertising
John Hamm: world, in Manhattan.
John Hamm: And, uh...there's a--
Zach Galifianakis: The women in the show are very pretty.
John Hamm: Yes. Very much so.
Zach Galifianakis: Do you ever get around to
fingering any of them?
John Hamm: You mean, like, identifying
them in a 'lineup?
Zach Galifianakis: Yeah, identify them in a
lineup. I know what you mean.
Zach Galifianakis: I understand that you won a
Golden Globe award.
John Hamm: I did.
Zach Galifianakis: I'll mark that under who
gives a shit. Does it make
Zach Galifianakis: you sick when you look in the
mirror to see how handsome
Zach Galifianakis: you are and to know that
people are disfigured and
Zach Galifianakis: don't you think you should
think that?
John Hamm: I never really thought of it
that way.
Zach Galifianakis: You never thought, hey, why
is Jesus so cruel?
John Hamm: Oh, I've thought that.
Zach Galifianakis: How many seasons do you think
Mad Men will go to?
John Hamm: Well, most shows on cable
they don't do a big...
(Zach sneezes loudly)
John Hamm: Do you want a tissue or something?
(Zach sneezes loudly again)
Zach Galifianakis: Oh God, I'm sorry.
(Zach sneezes loudly again)
(Zach sneezes loudly again)
Zach Galifianakis: I'm allergic to ferns.
