As Underwear Companies Jockey for His Junk, Jon Hamm Tells Public to ‘Lay Off…They’re Called Privates for a Reason’

Last week the world learned that Jon Hamm's massive trouser snake is a big distraction on the set of Mad Men.

HammUnderwear companies reportedly see a hefty opportunity in Jon Hamm's pants, TMZ reports:

The undie brands gunning for Jon's crotch are Fruit of the Loom and Jockey — which both reached out to Hamm after reports surfaced that "Mad Men" producers asked Hamm to stop going commando on set because his dong was visible through his clothes.  TMZ has learned … both companies have reached out to Hamm in the hopes of remedying the alleged problem … with FREE UNDERWEAR FOR LIFE!!!

A rep for Jockey told us … "Jockey would like to offer our support for Jon Hamm in the form of a lifetime supply of Jockey underwear. "

Jon Hamm is not amused by the hoopla, and expressed that to Rolling Stone in its new issue:

“Most of it’s tongue-in-cheek but it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have – a prurience…They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for f–k's sake…Lay off….I mean, it's not like I'm a f**king lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c**k, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal [of fame]."

    Unless all of the commando shots floating around the web are photoshopped, it would seem that Hamm hasn’t been very concerned about keeping his ‘privates’ private until right about … now.

  2. WhatWhat says

    Jon Hamm has always struck me as the type of guy with a very good sense of humor and a guy with the ability to laugh at himself…

    That being said, he comes off a bit whiny in this interview. Seriously, you’re mad because people are talking about your huge c**k? You poor thing! Take it in stride and just laugh it off.

    These stories about his supposed super-endowment arise every time his show starts a new season. A less trusting person would suspect that it’s intentional, if not on his part, then by his show runners.

    I can understand being uncomfortable with that kind of attention. It’s kind of creepy, actually. But, if he truly feels that should be a “private” issue, maybe he shouldn’t wear clothes that show every detail.

  5. Swing Low Sweet Chariot says

    Maybe he should wear a kilt and pull a Britney getting out of his limo? No, instead he keeps it all (mostly) under wraps and lets the public keep buzzing about his ‘privates’. And anyway, his aren’t so much ‘privates’ as ‘faux-discreets’.

    Mr. Hamm is right. He does not need an underwear endorsement what he really needs is a bread company to court him. He’s gotta put that ham some place

  7. Paul R says

    Jockey is just seeking publicity. Like someone quite wealthy needs underwear sold at K-mart?

    As I’ve said repeatedly in the comments, wearing underwear is unpleasant if you’re endowed. And no, I’m not trying to brag. I wish I didn’t. My mother found out I’d stopped wearing underwear when I was 12 and that led to a really uncomfortable chat.

  8. David says

    Grow up. Try being a woman.

    And no, wearing underwear is not uncomfortable when you’re well endowed. If anything, the support is more comfortable than not.

    Paul R, that’s why they made boxer shorts. Keeps things reined in but without all the cramping tighty-whiteys cause. Anyway, such things are luxury problems.

  10. Craig S says

    Needs to be said, his castmates are quite regularly subjected to much harsher aesthetic critiques than “I can see your little Hammy”. All people ever talk about with Christina Hendricks is her gigantic titties. Jessica Paré gets attacked over her teeth. Elizabeth Moss gets a ridiculous debate over whether she’s pretty (which of course she is) or so ugly she should go through life with a bag over her head. Even Vincent Kartheiser gets critiqued over his receding hairline. So yeah, it may suck, but Jon Hamm isn’t alone in this stuff — he’s got a whole cast of people around him who know *exactly* what it feels like.

    Anyway, if the paparazzi were actually trying to rumble him so they could rip his pants off and get photos of his trouser python unleashed, then he might have a point. But if the worst he can say is that some people look at photos of him in the privacy of their own homes to *try* to discern the outline of his snake and eggs inside his pants, that’s the kind of thing he needs to laugh off and not worry about — because it’s not interfering with his daily life, and complaining about it isn’t going to make it stop anyway.

    He needs some self esteem. From what I have seen on Craigslist, ex-large penises are commonly found on dirtbag street corner thugs. Of course we also know that tthey are essential to pornography, so I am thinking that those two groups use up a great deal of the allocation.

  12. Rob says

    I have this thing that lets me know how I look before I step out of the house, on the off chance that there could be cameras present. It’s called a mirror.

    I wonder the same thing about all the trainers at my gym who show major peen through their sweat pants. As if it were an accident and their junk were a vampire that doesn’t show in mirrors.
