As mentioned earlier this week, I am currently bingeing hard on Mad Men.
Great stuff for a copywriter/content strategist and while he's not the only one on the show that inspires, Don Draper sure does come out with some absolute pearlers.
“What you call love was invented by guys like me … to sell nylons.”
“It wasn’t a lie, it was ineptitude with insufficient cover.”
“There will be fat years, and there will be lean years, but it is going to rain.”
“We’re flawed because we want so much more. We’re ruined because we get these things and wish for what he had.”
“When a man walks into a room, he brings his whole life with him. He has a million reasons for being anywhere. Just ask him.”
“Advertising is based on one thing, happiness. And you know what happiness is? Happiness is the smell of a new car. It’s freedom from fear. It’s a billboard on the side of the road that screams reassurance that whatever you are doing is okay. You are okay.”
And if you ever find yourself in a tricky situation, wondering "what would Don do?" please refer to this handy infographic courtesy of The Oatmeal.
