‘Community’ Releases ‘Mad Men’-Style Teaser

NBC’s pop culture-loving comedy “Community” has found a creative way to tease its season five debut, releasing a trailer that spoofs “Mad Men,” the other cult favorite show that features co-star Alison Brie.

Much like the teasers for the AMC drama it references, the new promo is deliberately vague on what’s in store for the upcoming season. But that is all part of the fun; this season marks the return of series creator Dan Harmon, who recently told the New York Times that “the show’s never had a groove. That’s not a bad thing. It’s a joyfully un-templated show.”

The fifth season of “Community” bows at 8 p.m. January 2.
