Jon Hamm and Jack McBrayer (Kenneth Parcell) Confess Things So that Our Lack of Internet Privacy Can’t Do it First


Jon Hamm and Jack McBrayer (30 Rock‘s Kenneth Parcell, who is utterly similar in real life, at least in persona, to his character) have teamed up with Funny or Die in a PSA calling for people to support the ACLU, in light of the GOP-majority House of Representatives vote on a bill that will negate Obama era rules prohibiting internet service providers from selling users’ histories to advertisers. And so, in an attempt to beat the U.S. government to the chase, Hamm and McBrayer have released a confessional video, revealing their deepest secrets, to the whole Internet.

McBrayer drops this harrowing bit of personal information: “I tell people I’m 43 years old. In fact, I’m a mannequin that came to life but 10 years ago.”

“I animated him,” Hamm adds.

I wonder what target ads would appear in conjunction with a secret like that, or, for that matter, this:

“I will tell you that Jack’s genitals are made of actual junk,” says Hamm.

“Found objects,” McBrayer clarifies.

The video ends with the promotion of the ACLU’s Stand for Rights benefit, which is happening tonight, and pretty much features everyone else who’s ever worked with Tina Fey — first, Tina Fey herself, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Tituss Burgess, Alec Baldwin, Jon Hamm, and Ellie Kemper, many of whom, it seems from the event’s description, will be performing comedy routines. Mahershala Ali, Tom Hanks, and Maggie Gyllenhaal will also be in attendance, with the whole thing streaming on Facebook Live, and the site for the event declaring itself “the first time in history people have something productive to do on Facebook on a Friday night.” (Tickets to be tangibly present happen to start at a mere $1000.) A far more affordable Party for Rights is also being held by Funny or Die, and will feature appearances from Larry Wilmore, Matt Walsh, and more.
