Jon Stewart and “The Daily Show” pulled a decidedly hilarious prank on Jon Huntsman yesterday, directing answer-seeking “Mad Men” fans to the presidential hopeful’s Twitter townhall.
The Comedy Central show informed its 500,000 plus followers Tuesday that Jon Hamm, aka the mysterious and hunky Don Draper, would be accepting questions on Twitter:
“@MadMen_AMC fans: tweet Jon Hamm your questions by 4:15 Eastern! Hashtag #Q4Jon.”
The hashtag was actually created by Huntsman for his Twitter Q&A. Jon Hamm is, sadly, not sharing his every thought and feeling on the social networking site.
Mixed in with questions about foreign policy and climate change, Huntsman was receiving inquires like, “What's January Jones like in real life?” and “What's new on Mad Men this season? I'm a HUGE fan!”
Huntsman quickly recognized the prank. He responded to the question, “Jon, in ten years do you see yourself following George Clooney's or Tom Selleck's career path?” with, “I definitely want Clooney's career path. But I think that Q was for Jon Hamm. Funny prank
Funny and useful! The hashtag began to trend on Twitter, perhaps bringing Huntsman to the attention of Hamm lovers for the first time.
