President Obama has soften shown himself in good spirits with viral content, from Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns, or amiably meme-ing himself, but the latest bit is good enough to make you angry. Translate that anger with the help of Keegan-Michael Key himself, as Obama borrowed “Luther” for his own version of the famous Key & Peele bit.
The final seven episodes of AMC’s Mad Men have felt noticeably … well, “business as usual,” and very little like we’ve come to expect from a landmark series with so few hours left.

Thanks to a mistake made by Entertainment Weekly, the death of Patrick Dempsey’s Dr. Derek Shepherd (aka “McDreamy”) was well-known before audiences had the chance to watch the episode. That should have taken some of the sting out by allowing them to prepare for the tragic, abrupt death of Shepherd, but instead it only served to exacerbate outrage.
