Lady Mary Meets Vic Mackey in Funny or Die Spoof

Lady Mary Meets Vic Mackey in Funny or Die Spoof

Who says you can’t wear a tiara to a crime scene? Lady Mary is the kind of role that could stereotype an
actress, so Michelle Dockery has the good sense to be making fun of her aristocratic
counterpart already. In this Funny or Die spoof, she plays opposite Michael
Chiklis in a pretend — but painfully close to real — new TNT crime series, Tough Justice. Yes, Dockery is now Connie
Tough, although the Downton Abbey traditions
and good manners are exceedingly ingrained. Check out the gloves she wears to hande evidence.

Jon Hamm narrates the mock trailer, as Lady
Mary Crawley meets Vic Mackey, with voiceover by Don Draper — don’t tell the Dowager
Countess. It will give her the vapors. Click here to watch at Funny or Die.
