Art of the Cover - Jessica Paré's "Zou Bisou, Bisou" (2012)

Hey, that's Megan Draper!!

Suitably retro!

Yap, Draper - and her martini - stylishly graces the cover and also reinvents the French classic "Zou Bisou, Bisou".

She's seemingly as out of it as Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and seeing a vibrant red hallucinogenic image of her giant lovely head!

Sadly, we don't get to see her giant lovely, erm ... twins!

Man, those things are so powerful they, alone, almost salvaged the silly crock Hot Tub Time Machine!

The nicely presented "Zou Bisou, Bisou" also comes in a limited-edition gatefold sleeve. 

And in very fetching red vinyl.

The art was designed by Taline Anmahooni.

Yap, it's canuck singer and actress Jessica Paré, best known for playing Draper on "Mad Men" (and for being an ardant Jesus And Mary Chain fan!), with her 2012 release, "Zou Bisou, Bisou".

Pulled from the 4-time Emmy best-drama-winning TV show, the single was timed to coincide with the 2012 season!

A performance of the song by Paré featured prominently on the premiere of Season 5 of said popular telly show in the episode entitled "A Little Kiss".

RJD2's theme song for the show is the b-side.

The ode to kissing, "Zou Bisou, Bisou", was actually first recorded by cult  British actress and singer  - and francophone - Gillian Hills back in 1960.

A French recording titled "Zoo Be Zoo Be Zoo" was produced by George Martin and sung in English by Sophia Loren around the same time.
