Mad Men was making mistakes way back in the pilot episode, which is pretty understandable for a new show. The first ever episode introduces us to Don and the world of Sterling Cooper, centred around a pitch for a new advertising campaign for cigarette company Lucky Strike. Don eventually comes up with the winning slogan Its toasted! Thus, Sterling Cooper gets the account, Don is firmly set on his path and the rest, as they say, is history. Except, of course, that the slogan already was a part of history. Its toasted was part of a campaign run by Lucky Strike way back in 1917, some 43 years before the events of the episode. So either Don Draper is a time-travelling ad-man (and really, you wouldnt totally put it past Matthew Weiner) or this is one the show got wrong, or at least adapted history in order to suit their own ends.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
