Jon Hamm’s package has been the talk of the town these past several weeks, and, just when you thought it was dying down, Jockey comes forward with an offer the Mad Men star can’t refuse: A lifetime supply of free underwear.
Getting Hamm into a pair of tightie-whities has been a recent mission of AMC, Emmy Award-winning Mad Men‘s parent channel. Hamm is reportedly a serial commando and has often shown up to set in tight 60s-era suits that leave little to the imagination.
Rumor has it, they’ve had to airbrush his hog a couple of times. Producers eventually got tired of that and flat-out asked him to start wearing underwear when he’s working.
“This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination. Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear,” a source said.
Another added, “It’s true. The man is packing!” with a show insider snarking, “Costumers have their hands full.”
Now, Jockey has stepped forward to help Hamm out. In a statement to E! News, the company said, “Jockey would like to offer our support for Jon Hamm in the form of a lifetime supply of Jockey underwear.”
Additionally, they tweeted:

No word on whether Hamm will accept the generous offer (and the endorsement deal that’s likely to go with it), but he did say recently that being upstaged by his own manhood is starting to annoy him.
“Most of it’s tongue-in-cheek, but it is a little rude,” he said. “It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have — a prurience . . . They’re called ‘privates’ for a reason, I’m wearing pants, for f–k’s sake. Lay off.”
Come on, Jon. There are worse things to read about yourself.
“But whatever,” Hamm added. “I guess it’s better than being called out for the opposite.”
Are you a fan of Jon Hamm? Should he accept Jockey’s offer?
