We’re hooked now, and just starting season 5.
“Mad Men” is a great show. I love the period references, clothing, and language. I especially enjoy the insider-baseball advertising/agency innuendo: The new business conundrums. The inner-office politics. The ineptitude of the partners at times. The dynamics of an agency meeting. I love it all.
Most of all: Don Draper, one of the most iconic TV characters of the last decade or more. Much has been written about the character (heck, “Dear Abby”-like Tumblr blogs are devoted to him), but one thing lingers in my mind as I watch the show: What if Don Draper were transported 50-some years into the future and worked in the PR industry instead?
Well, I gave that some thought. (Yes, I do think about such things.) Here’s a list of 15 ways Don Draper might be different if he were working in public relations in 2013:
Ad man Don Draper’s drink of choice: Canadian Club, straight up.
PR man Don Draper’s drink of choice: Coffee. That’s an easy one.
