Jon Hamm & Lena Dunham Introduce New Yorker App

Mad Men star Jon Hamm and Girls creator Lena Dunham took a kooky turn in a five-minute video introducing The New Yorker‘s iPhone app.

We’ve embedded the video above–what do you think? Hamm plays a sleazy night show host and Dunham plays a disinterested actress, but somehow, they manage to outline all of the new features on the app as well.

All Things D has more about the app: “If you’ve used the New Yorker’s iPad app, then you’ll have a very good sense of what you’re getting here: All of the magazine’s content, along with a small handful of digital goodies, delivered to your device via Apple’s Newsstand. Access is free for print subscribers, or you can buy a digital-only subscription that includes iPad and iPhone access; you can also buy individual issues. Publisher Conde Nast is giving away this week’s edition free, so you can try it out yourself.”
