Ad Man: Don Draper Pitches the New Facebook Timeline

Leave it to Don Draper to sell us on Facebook’s new Timeline feature. The main character in AMC’s critically acclaimed show “Mad Men” could probably convince me to purchase anything, so naturally he is the right man to pitch Facebook’s latest (and some would say unnecessary) feature to the world.

The video is actually taken from the series’ Season One finale, “The Wheel,” in which Draper (played by Jon Hamm) pitches his ad campaign for the Kodak Carousel (what?) to his client.

Regardless of whether or not you like Facebook’s new layout (I’m getting used to it myself), you have to admit that Draper is a pretty classy guy, and pulls it off quite brilliantly.

Don Draper: ad man and mad man

Kudos to Eric Leist, a technology strategist (what?) who put together the video, and to the good folks over at Mashable for bringing it to my attention.
