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]."

The new season of Mad Men is almost upon us, so what's going to get people talking about it?

Perhaps a few items in gossip columns, like this one, via NYDN Confidential:

An AMC insider tells Confidenti@l that during filming of the sixth season of the hit show — when the ’60s-style clothing was a tight fit — Hamm was politely instructed by a staffer at the network to please wear underwear while shooting his scenes.

“This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” a source tells us. “Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.”

AMC's marketing team had to Photoshop certain areas, according to their source:

“His privates are the inside joke. (Hamm) knows what he’s got. Imagine how distracting that would be on the side of a bus or building."

Well, we really don't have to imagine. It's well documented.

Still, the show doesn't want people talking about it:

A rep for Hamm said: “It is ridiculous and not really funny at all. I’d appreciate you taking the high road and not resorting to something childish like this that’s been blogged about 1,000 times.”
