Lena Dunham The New Yorker App

Anything co-starring Jon Hamm and Lena Dunham is bound to have merit, and the same goes for this laugh-out-loud New Yorker iPhone app skit. Hamm plays a talkshow host and Dunham plays Lonny Dolan (or something like that), a celeb with "high degree of difficulty" pants and an upcoming movie called "The Assistant."

Also: Hamm isn't familiar with the terms "app," "The New Yorker," or "iPhone." He does, however, have an iPad, and reads books on it all the time.
