Peggy Sauntering Into Work On ‘Mad Men’ Gets The Soundtrack It Deserves

There are not many things I enjoy more than taking GIFs from Mad Men and setting them to music. The whole show is so visually striking and full of moments that jump off the screen, almost as though they’re each meant to get their own little individual soundtracks. It all usually works best with GIFs where bad things happen to Pete because, I mean, everything can be improved by bad things happening to Pete. But it’s sometimes nice to let other characters in on the act, too.

Point being: Here is a GIF of Peggy sauntering into McCann Erickson set to “Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta” by The Geto Boys. It works pretty well. Although, to be fair, you could set this GIF to almost any song and it would work. And you should. It’s quite fun. “Control” by Janet Jackson is a solid option. But I went with this one because, come on, it’s hard to get more gangster than showing up to your first day at a new job hungover on sweet vermouth with sunglasses on and a cigarette dangling out of your mouth and a 150-year-old drawing of explicit tentacle porn tucked under your arm.
