Mad Men's 1960's Manhattan setting works perfectly for the series, but let's be honest - we've all thought about how Don Draper would fare in a different time period. Modern times? His infidelity would be nearly impossible with the existence of Facebook, and apps like "Find my iPhone." The 1990s? His hair wouldn't be able to handle frosted tips. The 1980s, though? Judging by this Twitter parody account from stand-up comedian and The Onion contributor John McNamee, that might actually work.
Featuring tweets mostly consisting of Don sharing his thoughts on popular '80s products and the country as a whole - not to mention an absolutely epic profile image - this page may just be the best thing you'll see all day.
