It happens all the time. Really. Whenever I’m out and about at a social event, dinner, fundraiser, etc. When the conversation turns to “So Bob, what do you do? “Oh, I’m in the advertising business. I run an ad agency.” Inevitably… the next words I here are “Oh, like Don Draper?”
Apparently everyone is watching MAD MEN. But take it from me, today’s advertising business is NOTHING like the world that Don Draper lives in. No womanizing. No smoking. No boozing (well, once in a while).
I saw this string of tweets from someone who calls himself “’80s Don Draper”. It’s amusing. Take a look.
