“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm thinks a Canadian city should be named “Hammilton” — after all, his nickname is “the Hammer.”

In a cheeky video posted to YouTube on Thursday, the actor gave a quarantine shout-out, sort of, to the City of Hamilton in a public service announcement video that saluted the most generous Canadian cities supporting their local restaurants through delivery services like Skip the Dishes.

Roughly one minute into the video, he mentions Hamilton, although with a spelling that matches his own name.

“Ever think about a city named ‘Hammilton?’” he said, with a highway sign pointed toward the city and a picture of the Skyway bridge in the background.

“You could call it ‘The Hammer,’” he continued, “which happens to be my nickname. Just a thought.”

Hamm, who is not Canadian but says he wishes he was, goes on for several minutes highlighting more cities working to support local businesses.

“You guys are crushing it,” he said. “Supporting your local restaurants and tipping your favourites through the Skip the Dishes app. So please, keep doing what you can because every penny counts.”

Yes, he knows we don’t use pennies anymore.
