If “Zou Bisou Bisou” has been stuck in your head since the season five premiere of Mad Men, you’re not alone. Luckily, Angela Di Carlo has found even more musical inspiration on the show than just Megan Draper’s titillating number. Di Carlo writes and stars in The Mad World of Miss Hathaway, a serial musical parody of the AMC hit that has now reached its sixth episode, “How to Succeed in Advertising: The WASP Way.” The episode concerns the titular JoAnne Hathaway (inspired by Mad Men’s Joan Holloway Harris) as she tries to keep order at the Spencer-Colfax ad agency amid rumors of a corporate takeover. Di Carlo’s castmates include Clayton Dean Smith, Casey Spooner of Fischerspooner, and Patrick Johnson, with Kyle Forester on the piano. And as for “Zou Bisou Bisou,” the team will be delivering the renewed hit—in German.
