Reporters and critics covering AMC’s “Mad Men” have no excuse for missing the new artwork for the show — because AMC tweeted it right at us.
To promote the series’ final season, the network cast a wide net — tweeting everyone from “Mad Men” superfans at TheWrap (hi!) to Rosanna Scotto, an anchor at the New York affiliate’s “Good Day NY.”
Flattery will get you everywhere. The network also tweeted the art to lots of fans who tweet about the show often.
AMC maybe should have tweeted the new image at some art critics, too, because they could have helped explain the gorgeous but hard-to-place picture.
The earthy tones feel very “Age of Aquarius,” recalling the Southern California of the late ’60s — the time period of the show’s final season. The new season’s first teaser trailer found Don Draper getting off a plane in what appeared to be Los Angeles, suggesting that his dreams of heading West may have come true.
Here’s the full image. Feel free to explain it in the comments:
