The Internal Revenue Service filmed a “Mad Men”-themed continuing professional education video last year featuring an actor patterned after the Don Draper character in the popular AMC cable TV series.

The “IRS Training Video” was part of a series called CPE FY 2012 and was uploaded to YouTube by the actor, Michael R. Davis, as part of his ActingReelMrDavis channel on YouTube. Davis narrates the film noir-like black and white video as jazz music plays in the background, dressed up like the Draper character, who is played by Jon Hamm on TV. Davis has also performed as Danny in the stage musical “Grease” and as the dentist in “Little Shop of Horrors,” according to The New York Times.
