It's not every day a celebrity the caliber of John Hamm makes a stop by the Capital Region, but it happened a few days ago. Everyone knows who this man is. John Hamm is Donald Draper, the lead man from the massively popular hit TV show Mad Men. He has done numerous other things including some movies and is even the voice of Mercedes Benz. I think his voice pairs perfectly for that. I can just imagine him ripping up corners in an AMG when I hear those commercials.

Why did Hamm come to the Capital Region though? Well, he visited a public relations agency, Overit. He came to do a little bit of voice work. I have one statement. As a giant fan of Mad Men, why didn't he come to our radio stations??? We have microphones that he could have done a voice over on.
