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.”

If you want to learn more about the universe of apps, join as at the Media App Summit on December 3.
