Don Draper's 'What?' vs. 'Lost's' 'What?'(VIDEO)

What word does Matt Weiner, creator of 'Mad Men,' write most often? Well, "$' isn't really a word. If his main character's favorite word is any indication, then he writes "What?" most often.

A serious 'Mad Men' fan with some serious extra time put together a montage of Don Draper saying "What?" over the last four seasons. A minute and a half of Draper saying "What?" to Peggy, "What?" to Pete, "What?" to Betty "What?" to Roger and "What?" to various secretaries he's since lost.

As the video's creator says, "Don Draper uses the word "what" as Van Gogh used color or Beethoven used sound." Touche.

The video (below) is certainly impressive. However, Draper will never say "What?" as often or as dramatically as the characters on 'Lost.' Over two years ago, YouTuber Chris Zabriskie compiled a rapid-fire video (also below) of the Island residents saying "What?" He only used the first three seasons and got over two minutes worth. Plus, there are way more "whats" per second than the Draper video.
