Jessica Paré turns chanteuse for Mad Men

Categories: Television

Two cultural touchstones from this weekend's Mad Men debut - the first is a twist on the hit series' titles with Barack Obama filling in for the falling man. It was created for weekend news magazine The Chris Matthews Show.

The second is Canadian actress Jessica Paré's version of Zou Bisou Bisou, which was a 1961 hit for the British singer and actress Gillian Hills (later to appear in Blow-Up) and may have been originally performed by Sophia Loren.

Paré's erotically charged rendition of the song, performed as a birthday gift to Don Draper (Jon Hamm), her new husband on the show, is so eye-catching it was burning up Twitter on Monday. It is sold on iTunes and on the AMC website.

The rough translation - "oh, kiss, kiss."
