Ellen DeGeneres removes all cigarettes from Mad Men

Ellen DeGeneres has removed all the cigarettes from Mad Men to draw attention to the Great American Smokeout, an annual anti-smoking campaign arranged by the American Cancer Society that encourages nicotine puffers to stop for a day on the third Thursday of November.

But rather than simply having Don Draper clutch thin air between his fingers, the montage of clips depicts him blowing on a party horn.         

Given that the grumpy ad man still refuses to smile, it's quite evident that the addition of party props does not make it easier to live with a stolen identity.
