He's unironically my role model
He doesn't think of you at all
>>159685794Same, he looks just like me too except I'm short and nowhere near as good looking. But other than that he's literally me
>>159685794There's a handful of people I will never mention this show to because I know for a fact they'll start pretending they're Don. What's with insecure men always latching onto the flawed "Alpha Male"? How many boomers thought they were Tony Soprano?
>>159686139Not at all, but I want to be like him.>>159686290This is literally me. I'm a loser and have no friends, so I just go to a bar, order whisky and stay silent while brooding about life and secretly hoping that a girl would start a conversation with me. Too bad you can't smoke inside bars anymore, that would make me cooler.
>>159686290Well its pretty obvious. Most people don't actually want to be better people, they just want to be successful. If they can see successful men who drink and abuse people around them but remain successful then that means they can fantasise that they can be successful while doing degenerate self destructive things
>>159686290UK here, pretty much every late 20s to mid 30s guy thinks he's Tommy Shelby
>>159688241Do they all threaten to BLOW THEY FOOKIN BRAINS OUT ARFUR if they see a white nuclear family in the streets?
>>159685794This is the most reddit thing I've read this month.
>>159688076Yeah and the ironic part is harboring the secret feelings of wanting to be only in it for yourself and abuse others to reach success probably only works to hold them back from becoming more successful. They should look into why they think that way. If you’re a degenerate or shitty person you should fix your personality not try to find ways to trick people into believing you’re actually a normal healthy person, most con men, pick up artists or whatever never reach that much success
>>159685794Even when he's still at his most pathetic and weasly he mogs most men. The people going 'Uhm sweaty you missed the point of the show' are idiots
>>159688797I mean I think that's also bullshit. Shitty people become successful all the time its just that they actually have to be intelligent, good looking and lucky which the average mimbo faggot watching these shows usually aren't
>>159688517Yes except they do get tricked into supporting open border policy instead
>>159688894You have to be mainly intelligent or lucky. Being good looking at best just helps people have some subconscious biases in favor of you. But you probably wouldn’t work yourself up from the ground into success if you are a really shitty person. People pick up on it. They dislike you or see you as fake and that holds you back. If you’re lucky and pretty much born into success and wealth then I guess you can probably get away with being a shitty person all your life
>>159686394> This is literally me. I'm a loser and have no friends, so I just go to a bar, order whisky and stay silent while brooding about life and secretly hoping that a girl would start a conversation with me. Please stop trying to emulate a fictional character who is played by an actor who is like ten times better looking than you
>>159689098Let people enjoy things
>>159689250He’s (you are) clearly not enjoying things, anon.
>>159685794he´s a high iq autist
>>159686290>How many boomers thought they were Tony Soprano?https://youtu.be/QT13kk8HDDo
>>159689582Don isn't autistic, he's just an asshole
>>159689673he moves in a slow manner while doing a serious face instead of walking like a human being, he´s the boomer version of the drive guy
>>159689746That’s probably because he’s drunk or at least tipsy 95 percent of the show
um yeah mine too
>>159689772don draper moves like he´s in a johnny walker dark silhouette ad circa 2010 lmao
>>159689956You kind of forget that Feldman is attractive as fuck because he plays an unhinged autist in mad men But goddman I’d fuck him
>>159685794This is me. Literally me. No other character can come close to relating to me like this. There is no way you can convince me this is not me. This character could not possibly be anymore me. It's me, and nobody can convince me otherwise. If anyone approached me on the topic of this not possibly being me, then I immediately shut them down with overwhelming evidence that this character is me. This character is me, it is indisputable. Why anyone would try to argue that this character is not me is beyond me. If you held two pictures of me and this character side by side, you'd see no difference. I can safely look at this character every day and say "Yup, that's me". I can practically see this character every time I look at myself in the mirror. I go outside and people stop me to comment how similar I look and act to this character. I chuckle softly as I'm assured everyday this character is me in every way. I can smile each time I get out of bed every morning knowing that I've found my identity with this character and I know my place in this world. It's really quite funny how similar this character is to me, it's almost like we're identical twins. When I first saw this character, I had an existential crisis. What if this character was the real me and I was the fictional being. What if this character actual became aware of my existence? Did this character have the ability to become self aware itself?
>>159685794His way doesn't work out unless you're a hot chad. That was Pete's problem. He tried emulating Don and failed.
But he's a Fuck up and an emotional mess
>>159689956two of those are literally jewish in the show, you fucking retard.it's been how many years you've been doing this? how many people have have been shocked that jews control hollywood? it's a well kept secret after all.
>powerful, succesful and rich man who gets all the hot women"ummm sweaty actually you aren't supposed to want to be like him"
>>159690388He’s an object of envy, but you wouldn’t want to be HIM specifically because he’s a neurotic mess who hates himself and his life and can’t form meaningful connections with anyone inb4 >that’s literally me anywayExactly. And how happy are you now
>>159690221Yeah but he gets pussy and has a Manhattan penthouse
>>159690524And yet he still hates himself and his life and is deeply unhappy.
>alcoholic>emotion cripple >daddy issues>mommy issues>grew up in a whorehouse >coward>hates himself so much he assumes the identity of a dead man>self destructive tendencies so high he'll throw away true happiness intentionally Don is a great character, but a role model? Nah. Look to based Ken instead.
>>159690572Also he got beat up by DUCK
>>159690478>Exactly. And how happy are you nowI would be happier at least if I was rich, tall, handsome and got to fuck 10/10 women whenever I wanted. I have every single bad trait Don has and none of the good ones, I would love to switch places, Don would kill himself I less than a week was he forced to be me.
>>159691632>I would be happier at least if I was rich, tall, handsome and got to fuck 10/10 women whenever I wanted.for like a few months, maybe. Then you'd be exactly as unhappy as you are now, ya miserable bastard
>>159691695Still better to cry in a mansion rather than your moms basement.
>>159690607Duck killed 74,000 men in Nagasaki
>>159691695Ugly cope. Some people's lives are just objectively better
>>159691812>>159691792right dudes you're really, like, harshing my vibe right now. Can you like hang yourselves or something
>>159691695Not true at all
>>159691880>>159691812>>159691792off my board incels!
>>159691695You remind me of the rich people who say money don't bring happiness, you ever notice how none of those motherfuckers ever give their wealth up?I'm not even asking them go homeless and give it all away, no, just downgrade to like middle class, yet they can't even do this, their actions speak louder than their words.
>>159691935>>159691812>>159691792holy fuck you guys are pathetic lmao
>>159691930This is incel roost territory
>>159689772It's kind of fucked people from the Mad Men era in advertising said the alcoholism and smoking was way worse in real life and the show actually down plays it. If I drink for a few days I'm a mess that can barely function. How the fuck did these guys drink 24/7 and be so successful?
>>159692123> How the fuck did these guys drink 24/7 and be so successful? Have you seen it’s always sunny?
>>159692123They lived in a very optimistic time
>>159692123>How the fuck did these guys drink 24/7 and be so successful?Because their jobs were literally just fooling people that what they did generated revenue. You can put any dumb shit on a billboard and it will increase market awareness. Their first job is fooling clients more than fooling customers and you can do that drunk
>>159692411God fuck off you gay stickler before I shove your head down a toilet
>>159686290I have the opposite issue, I will never mention this show to certain people because I fear they will believe I'm larping as Don, when I just have my own personal issues that make me act a certain way and I like to dress nice
>>159690572Name me one, just one, main male character without major flaws. This is what I realised a few years back, a good man, a real role model, is nonexistent in our pop culture/Hollywood.Prove me wrong.
>>159690607Duck killed 15 men at Okinawa. Don pissed his pants and got his CO killed. Duck would have beaten Don within an inch of his life. Kw8ap
>>159685794white niggas love oboy lol
>>159690485And hates his life.
>>159690572Ken was perfect. Never quick to anger, a good 'feature' writer, handsome but not overly, collected, cool eyepatch, like by everybody. Is there anything else?
>>159693682Leo in TitanicReese in TerminatorMacGyver
>>159685794For me it was Roger Sterling.
>>159685794He's literally me.
>>159695204IT WAS SEVENTEEN MEN YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARD
>>159695204Who would’ve won in a fight between Duck and Roger?
I'm a Pete Campbell type a guy
>>159696066I think everyone ITT is Pete more than any other character
>>159696066He really didn’t age well throughout the show.
>>159696111Trips of truth>>159696135It was hair kino
>>159696169I mean I guess, but he was objectively much more handsome in early seasons
>>159696190I was joking. It was obviously the show writers making fun of him
>>159695826Ken's only flaw is that he decided to take an extremely high-paying job purely out of spite instead of focusing on his writing.
>>159696111>I think everyone ITT is Pete more than any other characterRich trust fund babby with Alison brie as a supportive submissive wife, don't get ahead of your self there.
>>159696135That's just the way they styled him, he had to shave his hair to get Pete's receding hairline in the later seasonsIt's actually impressive how they made a guy with a babyface like Kartheiser's look middle aged before he actually was.>>159696267Obviously minus the perfect Alison Brie wife
>>159685794you're no better than the got fans who treated each episode like a spectacle and cheered when don comes out on top
also reminder that irl Pete fucking won
>>159696286Holy fuck the receding hairline wasn’t real it was fake? Kino
>>159689098fuck off normieeveryone pretends
>>159685794Why would you have an ironic role model?
>>159695881All over two decades old. And I would not call them role model due to the context of their characters.Leo in Titanic was a thief if I remember correctly. And he had an affair / ruined the relationship.Reese in Terminator was a killer with PTSD. Maybe a role model for war times, but not for a civilised society (maybe I should have specified this when I talk about a role model)I can't say much about MacGyver, I've never watched it. But isn't he some middle aged military guy solving crimes? No kids, no wife?
>>159696372Shut up loser, stay in your corner
>>159691695Holy Cope.Rich people who have constant sex with hot people are the happiest demographic period, statistically proven beyond a doubt.Cope or Rope, Bluepiller.
>>159688241UK here, yr a fucking liar lad, its all Lonsdale, fades, white sneakers and wiggerisms
>>159696473> Rich people who have constant sex with hot people are the happiest demographic period, statistically proven beyond a doubt.I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say you’re an ugly poor person
>>159688241>>159696486Depends where you are really, I've seen both of this round the place
>>159688241Burger here and I like to emulate Arthur. Girls like it when I do his voice in bed.
I have to make calls at work to try and bring in new clients at my work and I've unironically started pretending to be Don during the calls
>>159696503So you agree
>>159696608Have you ever done a heartfelt but altogether too personal and uncomfortable pitch about Hersheys to them?
>>159691695every single rich person I knew when I was rich said this and they all claw to their riches and are the most selfish people you'll ever meet because they know it's not true.Money puts a wall between you and the plebs if you're smart.
>>159696608>Who do you smoke?>Huh? I'm trying to buy printers here>I'm a Lucky Strike guy myself
>>159696638Wouldn’t know, I’m handsome and richStay mad Incel ;)
>>159696503>you’re an ugly poor personHe probably is, but how does that disprove anything he said? Do you seriously disagree that rich attractive people don't enjoy life more?
>>159696726Cope or rope, Incel
I'm Ginsberg desu, except I'm not Jewish, doesn't bode well
>>159685794Don't be like a woman thento start, don't complain about anything
>>159696791Sneed or breed tranny
>>159696820How do your nipples feel?
>>159696644I haven't had any in person meetings yet, usually I lower my voice a few octaves, speak sloy and deliberately, and I try to think up a few analogies or platitudes where it sounds like I'm saying something deep but I'm really saying nothing at all. It's unironically working way better than anything I've ever tried.
>>159696885Have you tried having like five or six shots before a call with a client? Unironically that would get you Don Draper’d
>>159695748would you rather still hate your life and be a poor lonely virgin?
>>159696885one would say you're not impersonating don, you're impersonating someone whose confident, which is basically what 99% of confidence is
>>159696690So... you literally give me right?
He is humanity as a whole in one transcendental person suit. He encompasses all of mankind’s best and worst traits, like us he is full of artistic and cultural genius, intellect, and scientific curiosity. Like us, he is empirical and philosophical at once. His capacity for compassion is matched only by his cruelty. Like us, he reveres some lesser creatures and consumes others with all the brutality of a factory farm. And like us, he is alone in the universe wondering if there’s anyone out there that can relate.He can’t be viewed as a recognizable and relatable person because he can’t be defined, the canon itself tells us that. The same questions that can be asked about mankind collectively apply to him. Is he a psychopath? Is humanity? Is he evil? Is humanity? Is he kind? Is mankind? Is he capable of love? Are we?
>>159696935Bro I mean this sincerely having sex won’t fix your life
>>159697003Can you LITERALLY learn to speak English, ESL?
>>159697064?Anyway you agree with me, but think you disagree.
>>159696565>I'M FOOKIN COOMIN, TOMMY
>>159697014You misunderstood me if you think that's what I said. But given a life of suffering (which will occur anyway) would you prefer a life with sex or without it. That simple.
>>159697014Nobody said anything about it fixing your life, it's simply the observation that having the opportunity to have sex with multiple attractive women whenever you want is preferable to not being able to get it, same thing with Don's wealth, wealth does not equal happiness, but it sure is better than being poor and working a shit job.
>>159696473Yea this gets old eventually. Everything does really. Live that way for years and you'll eventually get sick of it and want something meaningful. Get something meaningful and you will get bored and wanna go live it up again.Conundrum of the not worrying about dying every second Era.
>>159697204I think sex with hot women would probably make you happy in the first few months you started and then you’d quickly become desensitised and numb to it. It’d still be enjoyable, but fleetingly so and you’d still be unhappy
>>159696924Im planning on crushing a tall boy 30 minutes before my next call and see what happens
>>159697404Unironically something mad men depicts so well is the insidious nature of alcohol because it really does help. I was always so social and productive with clients when I’d had a few (a lot of) drinks
>>159697005Please be bait
God I want to suck his nipple through that fucking shirt
>>159697005Speak for yourself, I'm a dumbass.
>>159697494I can relate, I’m a retard and everyone tells me lmao

>>159697336You literally are a brain dead motherfucker, look up what a simple hug can do for the human psyche, next look up the health benefits of sex, not even with someone you love, just a one night stand.
>>159697552Give me your offers
>>159685794Do you think John Hamm has a big penis? Do you think he would let me suck it for hours?
>>159697579And the effects are fleeting. They aren’t permanent lol Why so mad?
>>159697336>desensitised and numb to sexlol
>>159697644they don't need to be permanent retard how does that change anything
>>159696864I try not to indulge my hypochondria
>>159697644Doesn't matter if they're fleeting, which feeling is not fleeting? Are you happy, sad or angry all the time, no they're all fleeting.I'm not mad, simply calling you out for the retarded faggot you are.
>>159697696It’s not gonna make you happy in the long term. It’s short term satisfaction
RETARDS! IN THIS THREAD!
stop talking about sexstart talking about television & film
>>159697730Look at this seething incel lmao
>>159697759Never have sex ever again, never eat a fancy meal ever again, never hang out with friends again, they all give short term happiness right?
>>159697947Eventually you will die, so why bother living?
>>159697947They’re all components of a happier life yes. JUST having casual sex with hot models (because you retards can’t form connections so you wouldn’t have more than casual sex anyway) isn’t gonna make you any happier after a few months/a year
>>159697899>incelWhoa dude, looks like you are belittling me for not being able to have sex, but I was told by anon's on here that sex is not important at all, so which is it?
>>159685794I doubt that.
>>159698017To you it’s clearly everything given how seething buttmad you are about not having it, but it really won’t fix your life. You’re just sad and bitter for a myriad of reasons and sex won’t fix that lol
>>159685911Same I look just like him other than my baldness and acne scars and height and ugliness
>>159698052>it won't fix your life>literally puts so much emphasis to it proving it literally is everything in life and bases the judgement of people on itYou are very dumb, aren't you
>>159698016I think the original point was being handsome and rich affords you a happier life and for some reason you argued that
>>159698016>They’re all components of a happier life yes.This is my entire point from the get go faggot, go read my original posts, not going to spoon feed another retard.
>>159697991this is genuinely a valid philosophical question. If we don't believe eternity will exist and all this building of lives for us and our kids is more or less doomed then the success of life comes into question
>>159697947I heard you're doing the hand thing. Hahaha. What is it?
>>159698191I will answer your question for you: humanity WILL go extinct at some point in the future. End of story.
>>159698191We are not asking the actually important question here. Will John Hamm accept my invitation to a date if I ask him nice enough?
>>159698249that's not the question, that's the concept. We know this, and so the real question is how do we find meaning in short term hedonistic conquests where eternity doesn't exist.
>>159698371come home white man
>>159698193What? Fisting your mom?
>>159698470Who is that?
https://youtu.be/dTTzw8_83vgReminder that it's incredibly easy to be like Don but only if you are tall, handsome, in shape, and have a good voice
Life, that's a scary world to anyone at any age.
>>159698371Give me a break. You already are eternal. Once an event takes place, it can never be erased from the history of the universe. That event, whatever it is, is now ETERNAL.

>>159697899Have sex incel. Edit: Thanks for the gold kind stranger Edit 2: 327 upvotes for this? Haha wow that's the most I've ever gotten, thanks guys and gals and everything in between! Edit 3: WTF 600 upvotes wow thank you all so much this is the best cakeday ever Edit 4: Thanks for all the birthday wishes fellow r/wooooshers. I tippeth mine hat to thee on this pleasant morrow. Edit 5: Ok, so this went viral overnight for some reason O_o 2000 motherflipping upboats I really have no words thank you all so much it means a lot! Edit 6: ok I'm noticing some toxic discussion happening in this reply chain and I feel the need to address it. Sexism and racism are not cool guys, so please cool it and continue the good vibes please and thank you! Edit 7: ok so I don't know why but I've received a lot of downvotes on this post recently, maybe i got raided by 4chan.com/b?? (commonly referred to as the "asshole of the internet" for those who aren't aware). I don't really ask for much but I was hoping we could show those losers a thing or two, so please give this post an upvote if you haven't already, it would mean the world to me and show these bullies you cannot mess with a good person. Edit 8: turns out my girlfriend cheated on me, so that happened :/ Edit 9: so people have been wanting me to clarify the previous edit. I don't have the energy to go into a lot of detail so the general gist of it is this: Yes we were in an open relationship, no that doesn't mean you can't cheat on someone when you're in an open relationship. If you are having sex regularly with someone and never mention it until they get you pregnant, that is definitely a betrayal of trust even if you've both agreed that she can have as many partners as she feels she needs to be comfortable. Edit 10: FYI, taking responsibility for the child does not make me any less of a man than you, actually it makes me more, so kindly fuck off please and thank you!
>>159698748a cure for the common lifeit's lifeted.life does what deathn'tuh teddy told me that in greek, life literally means living. what a gyp

>>159696190I actually loved how they made Pete age over the course of the show. Just made it feel more lifelike
>>159699074>In Greek, the word life had two meanings:>Lyf - the existential nature of moral platitudes>and Liff - the road through Tartarus>Also means the pain of going home
>>159698783I disagree, things are lost to time frequently. Eternal maybe in the eyes of an omniscient figure who does not care to reveal.
