It seems more like they're trying to cram a story line involving blacks in the show somehow.
The show has always done really well with incorporating social issues (divorce, hippies, the war, consumerism, etc.) and it's no surprise that they're working a civil rights angle into the 60s.
If the teachable moment involves Dawn taking Ginsberg to her friend's Harlem wedding, count me 100% in.It would be great if they got into advertising for Nixon '68.
Could cover counter-culture vs. reactionaries from the under-covered reactionary side and wrap in Henry & Betty. The new bootlicker dude looks exactly like a Nixon campaign aide, for good measure.
I'm still waiting for this season to take off. Sunday was another let-down.
what do you mean by Obama type teachable moment?
Yeah, I'm confused how anyone is confused by this too...I guess if you don't recognize JWT as an agency (they are...maybe the biggest in the US? definitely top 3), it might be a bit harder to pick up, but it seemed pretty obvious that they were showing up at the bar for the same reason as Don.
I think it really goes to show that Peggy and Don were a good team.
They were really both keying in on the same idea--Heinz = Ketchup, Ketchup = Heinz. Don's idea was probably more compelling, but they clearly wanted the bottle and peggy gave them the bottle. There might be something at play with the Ketchup guy wanting to be clear that it is *his* Heinz product that is being advertised and the combined powers of Peggy and Don might have figured that out.
Maybe a two page set, spaced a page or two apart in a magazine, first page has Don's ad with "Something's Missing" and the followup page has Peggy's ad with "There's the Heinz"
Ted's line of "Mind if we join the Lonely Hearts Club?" was a dead giveaway for me.
"Should we fire him before he cashes in the check?"
If you have to ask my explanation would probably be meaningless.
OK well I didn't get this either. I thought Peggy's firm got the account, and that was why Stan was so pissed at Peggy. That does make sense, though. I wonder what the other firm did that worked. Peggy and Don's ideas were both pretty good.
My guess is it is something like this:
Well I'd appreciate trying to understand something I'm missing. They have had two black characters before, both touching on interracial relationships. I have no clue what a "Obama teachable moment" is. I know you are a big republican but not sure that has to do with your comment.
I am not a big Republican. In fact, I am anything but a Republican as they really do not appreciate atheist, libertine, immigrants that want some form of universal healthcare and think gays should be able to accrue the same legal relationship rights as breeders. The fact you think I am tells me my original reply was probably pretty on point but I shall try to explain against my best judgement. An Obama "teachable moment" is where blame is displaced and you condescendingly tell us how the culpable party is really not to blame and you would understand that if you just had the right perspective. A great example would be the "Beer Summit."
