The Irony of Mad Men-themed Holiday Cards - How far we've come... Or not

My friend and former colleague, Steve Hall (founder of AdRants and AdGabber), had a post on his Facebook page about how tired and unoriginal the Mad Men-themed Holiday cards are from our agency brethren.

While I agree I couldn't help but notice a rather pathetic irony. That in the Holiday card from Denver-based Cultivator Advertising & Design all the "staffers" dolled up to look like Mad Men characters are all white. And this was shot in 2009. That's pretty sad in my book.

Happy Holidays!
