LOS ANGELES, April 4 (UPI) -- A clip featuring a 25-year-old Jon Hamm participating in 90s dating show The Big Date has surfaced on the Internet.

The video, published on YouTube by Lighthearted Entertainment, originally aired in 1996 and finds a not-yet-famous Hamm competing against two other contestants for a date with a lucky lady named Mary.

In the show, the woman would pick one of the bachelors after each pitched their idea of a perfect date. Hamm was the last contestant to pitch his idea of a "fabulous" date and decided to base the event in a revelation made by Mary earlier in the show -- she has a foot fetish.

"Start off with some fabulous food, a little fabulous conversation, with a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulosity,” the Mad Men star said.

Mary, however, was unimpressed with the actor's proposal and ended up choosing 28-year-old stuntman Marc.

You can check out a clip of Hamm's speech and the full episode below.
