Ben (the guy on the right) was participating in a charity event called Scavenge for Life, an anti-cancer fundraiser. One of the tasks on the scavenger hunt was "take a picture of a team member cradling an adult stranger like a baby." Ben just happened to find Jon Hamm outside SideBAR and said, "Excuse me, Mr. Hamm, I'm doing a charity scavenger hunt for cancer research, would you mind if I cradled you like a baby?" Jon Hamm said, "Sure."

Lena Dunham joined in to support the charity scavengers, too.

Jon Hamm wasn't alone—he was hanging with his partner Jennifer Westfeldt, as well as Lena Dunham and BJ Novak. They took a picture with one of the #ScavengeForLife teams, with Lena holding up the list of tasks.
