Office Party (Mad Men)
We all love a good Christmas office party, right? And my do the characters of Mad Men need it. It’s the festive season in 1964 at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce with the “Christmas Comes But Once A Year” episode, the office frolics change course when big client Lucky Strikes’ Lee Garner Jr. shows up to join in the festivities. Finances are tight, Don has reached new lows (yet still he gives women and alcohol all his attention), and there is some positive tension between Roger and Joan. The wardrobe is a real shining star on Mad Med, and here Joan and that red dress (that Roger mentioned) leads the way through the office conga-dancing in line to the music. A great, energetic sequence, for a moment all the worries go away.
