Season 5 of Mad Men premiered with its personal best ratings of 3.5 million viewers on Sunday, and many fans are talking about the most memorable scene from the debut when actress, Jessica Pare (who plays Megan on the show), sings a tantalizing version of the ’60s French pop song “Zou Bisou Bisou” for Don Draper’s birthday.
The scene can’t help but draw similarities to Sophia Loren‘s famous performance of the song — originally sung by 16-year-old Gillian Hills in 1960 — in the ’60s British rom-com The Millionairess. So now we ask…who had the better performance of “Zou Bisou Bisou”; Sophia Loren or Mrs. Draper?
