I’m certain that the second people at AMC get wind that this clip is online, embedding will be disabled; and, soon after, copyright laws will have this clip going the way of the dodo, the dinosaur, and my beloved clips from Powder Blue. Until then, though, let’s all bask in the sublime, almost Lynchian pleasure that is Peggy performing “Bye Bye Birdie” in this past week’s episode of Mad Men:
LOVE IT. Particularly the way the crazy burns in her eye. Oh, and the way she calmly returns to brushing her hair as though this ain’t no thing.
Seriously, I’ve watched this scene too many times to keep track of, but that hasn’t stopped it from being just as incredible the 137th time around as it was when I first watched it. I obviously don’t need anymore reasons to love Elisabeth Moss’s work on the show, but Matthew Weiner blessed us with this little morsel of ridicuweirdness, and I’m not going to complain.
Now let’s all watch it AGAIN!
