Just when you thought “Mad Men” couldn’t get any cooler, it does.
The AMC show has inspired dudes to bring back the skinny ties and lapels of its era, and made many a cubicle dweller long for the days of scotch-friendly offices and expansive cityscape views. And, of course, we all want to be as facially blessed as the characters. We thought “Mad Men” had reached peak cool long ago, but that was before we saw these amazing, retro-advertising style For Your Consideration ads ahead of Emmy nominations.
Featuring the show’s main players, the ads all showcase clever product tie-ins and slogans that all point to awards consideration. For example, main man Don Draper (played by Jon Hamm) is the model man for a sunglasses ad, with copy that reads, in part, “Behind every pair of our glasses is a man with winning character… and much more.”
Certain product tie-ins, like Joan (Christina Hendricks) and her “FYC Red” hair dye are especially clever.
Sally (Kiernan Shipka) isn’t a little girl anymore.
Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) is just, well, perfect.
Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) is a performer.
Megan (Jessica Pare) is stepping out.
Betty (January Jones) prefers gold.
Roger (John Slattery) deserves recognition.
