It’s hard to forget Megan Draper’s infamous song and dance number at Don Draper’s birthday party during Season 5 of Mad Men. Mrs. Draper got up and surprised Don with a French burlesque-like performance, which left all the men smiling and the people talking about her at the office the next day. But prior to this episode airing, Jessica Pare, who plays Megan Draper, wasn’t sure that “Zou Bisou Bisou” would be a hit.
During her first ever late night visit Wednesday night, Pare told Jimmy Fallon that she had to wait seven months after filming “Zou Bisou Bisou” to find out how people would react to it. But once it took off, fans responded to her on the streets. Sally Field and Daniel Day-Lewis even recognized her. But Pare did have to deal with one embarrassing after-affect: Her mother now tries to copy her Mrs. Draper performance at dinner parties. Yikes!
