Mad Men Anyone?

I know a lot of you ladies (and gents) out there are Mad Men fans- you can check out the show every Sunday night on AMC at 10pm est. The fashion and storyline for this show is insane. I've seen so many costumes inspired by this show and even themed parties!

I got the inside gossip about the new premiere of the Smith Winter Mitchell Agency vignettes airing during the show on AMC. These vignettes showcase how a fictional 1960s ad agency SmithWinterMitchell, which develops campaigns for the six iconic Unilever brands Dove, Breyers, Hellmann's, Klondike, Suave Hair, and Vaseline, combining witty historic parody with modern ad footage.  They also showcase these iconic brands and celebrate their heritage. It's just a new marketing twist on our everyday items.

The six vignettes will air during the show and will be immediately available online, in various places including on a dedicated YouTube channel, which can be found here:


The historical angle of the branded vignettes plays perfectly in the context of the series, as the vignettes were created specifically for the environment in which they will air. I've checked out each series and they're great marketing for the brands. If you enjoy Mad Men, or if you're fond of that genre check them out! Plus, there's a hottie in it! I love that these vignettes are new and fresh and play specifically off the show. So many ads now are boring and I enjoy seeing a new take on brands I've used forever.

Are you a Mad Men fan? Have you seen these vignettes? What are your thoughts? I'm swooning over the hair in the first picture, I'm definitely copying the look asap.
