Mad Men Theme / Nature Boy

“Nature Boy” (made famous by Nat King Cole), is performed over top of a live rendition of RJD2’s “A Beautiful Mine” (the theme from Mad Men). It’s amazing how well this fits, and it’s a one-take to boot!

Watch the video below!


For the record I stopped watching Mad Men during season 3 because it got extremely boring, but I am told season 4 is better?

    the seasson four is way way better, but i think what’s cool about mad men is the fact that it goes slowly as life was at this time. love it. love the vid. love you.

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post).

The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
