The ‘Great American Smokeout’ is an event put together each year by the American Cancer Society. For 24 hours, the Cancer Society challenges smokers to quit their bad habit for just a day.

Smoking is frequently glamorized in the media and Mad Men is just one example of this. Ellen Degeneres came up with a historical way to help the characters of Mad Men take part in this challenge, by creating ‘Mad Men Without Cigarettes.’

In Degeneres’ hilarious remake, each time Don Draper goes to put a cigarette to his lips, it is replaced with a party blower. The effect is hilarious and calls out just how often the characters in the show have a cigarette. If this video is any indication, trading cigarettes for party blowers might just make the world a better place. Stats for Hilarious Cigarette-Censoring Videos Trending: Older & Mild
