@80sDonDraper Reimagines Mad Men In The 80s, In 140 Characters

The Onion’s John McNamee scores a Twitter win this week, with the debut of @80sDonDraper, a hilarious send-up of Mad Men set in the 1980s.

It’s like @SeinfeldToday, but chronologically reversed (Modern Seinfeld reimagines Seinfeld if it were set today).

In less than 10 days, the account has racked up more than 13,000 followers. Maybe it’s on track to score some serious nods, as Modern Seinfeld did (Time named it one of the 140 best Twitter feeds of 2013).

Complete with Photoshopped profile picture of Don Draper with salt and pepper hair and a snazzy 80s power suit, @80sDonDraper posts such gems as these:

Amazing. Kudos to McNamee for the creative genius!
