Mad Men, the critically-acclaimed AMC series about Madison Avenue advertising men returned last night.
Twitter and the blogosphere were abuzz with talk about the show, and for good reason: It’s good.
My favorite Mad Men quote from last season:
Beatnik: “You’re in advertising… How do you sleep at night?”
Don Draper: “On a bed made of money.”
Reminds me of something my grandfather, Roy Draper, used to say:
There are two kinds of people in business:
Those that eat well,
and those that sleep well.
I prefer the latter.
My grandfather was an amazing man—the antithesis of Don Draper.
Still, I can’t take my eyes off the show: It illustrates how in marketing, commerce and conscience collide every day.
Do you have a favorite Don Draper line?
