The hippos eat marble after marble, but are never satisfied. That’s America.— ’80s Don Draper (@80sDonDraper) May 1, 2013
Last week we saw how Don Draper would age in 40-plus years. Today Don Draper is fast forwarding from the 1960s to the 1980s through the 80s Don Draper Twitter account, where Don markets classic products of the decade.
Both Don Draper and ad land cross paths with their not-so-distant pasts in the official poster for Mad Men Season 6.
According to The New York Times, Matthew Weiner drew inspiration from commercial illustration books from the ’60s and ’70s. Unable to find someone who could replicate the effect, he managed to find the guy who produced the real stuff: one Brian Sanders, still hard at work.
That’s some hardcore classic ad magic.
Is it April 7 yet?
