Offices of the "Mad Men" era might seem pretty old fashioned with their rotary phones and white out.
On top of the stolen identities, client meltdowns and reflexive infidelity, one of the most delicious plot lines in the series "Mad Men" is the rise of Peggy Olsen from coffee-fetcher to chief copywriter. This brilliant super cut shows the growth of Peggy in a few minutes.
Video remixer Elisa Kreisinger (aka Pop Culture Pirate) has teamed up with Mad Men mega-fan and mashup master Marc Faletti for her latest project, a feminist remix of Mad Men, set to the Supremes' iconic "Keep Me Hangin' On." Released in time for this past weekend's long-awaited season 5 premiere of Mad Men, the clever remix features clips of the show's female characters standing up for themselves in various situations. Watch the whole, impressive thing after the jump.

The parody of Mad Men features two "mad women" trying to market a vibrating jock strap. Watch it after the jump.
