Got Ketchup?

There are people who say TV will rot your brain…

but not the people who work at Heinz.

The AMC series Mad Men had a loyal following throughout its seven seasons. The show depicted the “mad men” era of advertising and its distinguishing characteristic was the slowed-down (borderline glacial) pace that was intended to accurately depict the real-time lives of their characters inside New York’s advertising world. Some of the scenes were engaging. Some of the scenes were less than engaging.

Incredibly, one of the engaging scenes from this fictional show appears to have inspired a real condiment company.

Could this be the next “got milk?” kind of ad campaign?

That story is mad cool.

(In the sentence above, the word “mad” is a substitute for the word “really.” As in those new Heinz commercials are really happening and nobody will be mad about it).
