Why does everyone want to be Don Draper?
He’s good… good at the ad game, at seduction, at drinking to recrimination. The radiant gleam of 1960s nostalgia is revealed in all its toxic, radium allure on AMC’s “Mad Men.” That old glow, and the chance to see the workings of a fine, old machine—Madison Avenue’s advertising business—make for beautiful television: the writing, the characters, and the style keep us coming back for more.
Why do you watch “Mad Men”? Do you turn it into a drinking game? Are you sober, or have some other reason to find Don Draper’s descent sobering? Tell us your “Mad” tale.
Make all submissions through Submishmash, at https://goodmenproject.submishmash.com/submit with “Mad Men” in your submission’s title.
