Where are the mAD Men?

We all waited for this season of Mad Men like crazy! The first two seasons were really awesome, you had those 60′s hot smoking men, those beautiful women and… above all – ADVERTISING! The 4th and 5th seasons were pretty OKish. With the new firm and then with the struggles the series did not begin to fall apart so we had high expectations for season 6.

Looking at how Mad Men started and where it is now, I’m starting to feel really disappointed. There is nothing exciting to it, no intrigue, no soul, no good story and, again, above all, too little ADVERTISING! Where are the great speeches Don used to have?

And talking about Don, because he is the main character, he seems off the track not only at the agency, but even in his personal life. Yeah, he’s cheating again, but it seems to me he has definitely lower standards :D , also not as hot as he used to be (right, ladies?). He looks pretty much wasted all the time and somehow… dried-up!

I must admit I never expected he’d cheat again, he seemed pretty satisfied with the French Megan, but hey… I guess the producers are trying to say what we all know: once a cheater, always a cheater!

All in all, I do think Mad Men is coming to an end. Truth is, there are few TV Series that lasted 6 seasons without losing the audience. As much as I love Mad Men, I’d like for it to end at the right point rather than see it going from good to bad to worse. Let’s just hope this is not the case :)

P.S. The one thing I did like very much was the Heinz fight that Peggy won, that shows how the apprentice can beat the master, a pretty realistic point of view I might say.

Attraction, Ads, Renault

Love is a very, very, very common subject. We all talk about it, we all write, think, sing, paint and, if we are lucky, feel it. Advertising makes no exception. The big word in this whole equation is “ATTRACTION”. If love is the feeling that bonds two people that are attracted to each other, advertising is the one that bonds the products to their customers. 

Instead of selecting great commercials that use love as a bait, I found on Renault’s official Youtube channel an experiment. You may be disappointed by the final result, but it’s pretty interesting to watch.

I don’t exactly know what the purpose of this experiment is or why Renault did it and I don’t really wanna know. I could search on Google and maybe find out the idea that was implanted in my head watching the video, but I’m just going to take it as it is. It’s not like I’m ever gonna have enough money for that red Clio anyways :D

Let me know what you think about the whole thing.
