MAD MEN: Don Draper Presents the Facebook Timeline

Who would have ever thought that all of Facebook’s newest features were originally conceived by the original AD man himself, Mr. Donald Draper.

As coincidences go, the Mad Men of the 1960s were the original brain children of compelling advertising and product positioning for a reason.

Those same compelling elements that originally made Kodak’s Carousel (as seen in the AMC television show Mad Men) popular, are the same elements that are making people more receptive than ever before to Facebook’s new timeline.

A clever and astute fan of both, composed the video above.

The key?

The ability to reminisce on past social activity and have all those fuzzy-warm feelings on what once was, or continues to be, through social activity.
