Client rejected it. The ad they actually made: a super porn-y POV shot of some hot MILF giving bedroom eyes. "She's ready to gently caress, are you?"

Tbf that does sound like a better ad

Game of Thrones allegedly accidentally filmed a rape scene and while it seemed ridiculous at the time the way things unraveled with the writers by the end of the series I now believe it.

The show writers were by all accounts very stupid, but I still never understood how one changes dialogue from "yes yes" to "no no" by accident.

Jon Hamm is a tall, attractive guy with a deep voice who is capable of speaking with an appearance of confidence. Men like to imagine themselves being tall, being attractive, speaking with a deep voice, and appearing confident. I think when people say they want to "be Don Draper," what they really mean is "be Jon Hamm."

Basically. Pointing out the ways in which he's actually weak or insecure inside is missing the point, because that's not part of the fantasy, the image is.

I disagree Putting the onus on someone else "Fixing" you is an toxic way to have a relationship. Having a Psychologist Girlfriend would be just as much of a quick nonfix as having Betty as a Rich society wife, or Megan as a good with children wife. Faye knew jackshit about what Don's actual life was like any insight she had was just as superfluous as Megan knowing that his birth name is Dick.

Faye could not push forward Don towards introspection because Don himself was not in a place that he could have allowed that of himself.


It's not that Faye has an obligation to Don. Rather, if he could have recognized why she'd be better for him than Megan and more, actually acted on that and chosen Faye, it'd have been a large and healthy step for him towards fixing himself.

I would guess that the sort of college Betty went to was more of a finishing school rather than the more typical college experience we think of today that Megan likely got.

Anyway, despite being uncomfortable, Don is a gigantic horse's rear end in the way he treats Megan here. She put out everything she had to honor her husband and he just threw it in her face and treated her like poo poo for it. The mature thing would be to actually loving communicate and respect the fact she did a ton of work, even if he doesn't like big parties. I still remember watching this live and thinking, "Don, go gently caress yourself" and my mind clearly hasn't changed.

I'd consider it a bigger favor if someone considered what I wanted and then half-assed it, than if they put a huge effort into doing something for themselves

I'll be honest, I really hate when people say this.

Hey Jerusalem, you might as well stop after the end of this season! It's all downhill from here buddy

I really don't think that follows.

Don has a lot of flaws, but his inability to follow a rapidly spoken conversation in a foreign language really is the most unforgivable.

The line "I don't think about you at all." comes from an Ayn Rand novel (The Fountainhead). I'm wondering if that's a call back to Season 1 when Cooper told Don to read the book and learn about her.

Was just going to ask if anyone thought it was a reference (because it for sure is). Don is ofc much less of a psycho than Roark, who's was being completely truthful.

It's such a great ad though, and just maybe...!
