Mad Men style commercials for Dove, Breyers, Vaseline and more

Friday, August 13th, 2010

mad men dove

Are you a fan of Mad Men? Yea, us too! The fictional Smith Winter Mitchell Agency is an advertising agency from the 60’s that needs to make new campaigns for their clients Dove, Breyers, Hellman’s, Klondike, Suave Hair and Vaseline.

These six new vignettes will air during Mad Men every Sunday night on AMC at 10pm est. So far the Dove and Breyer’s spots have aired. I prefer the Dove one the most, so far. The spots are in the similar vein of the Mad Men series.

These vignettes showcase how a fictional 1960s ad agency, Smith Winter Mitchell, develops campaigns for the six iconic Unilever brands (Dove, Breyers, Hellmann’s, Klondike, Suave Hair, and Vaseline), combining witty historic parody with modern ad footage. They also showcase these iconic brands and celebrate their heritage on a hit show that is culturally and contextually relevant.

The Dove ad:

The Covert Affairs Louboutin Shoes Craze and Christian Louboutin Knockoffs – Cheap

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

Annie tends to opt for closed toe pumps in neutral colors.

They were already popular, but knowing that Annie Walker of Covert Affairs is wearing a pair of Christian Louboutain heel’s in most scenes certainly is giving the brand some an added press coverage in the entertainment world.

Other than the fact that Walker mentions them by name, how do we know she wears in them episodes? Like say, in “No Quarter”? Because Louboutain’s have trademark red soles.

If you don’t have money in your budget for an authentic pair of the shoes, there is a way to get Christian Louboutin knockoff’s – cheap! In a way, this is a cheat. But just like a spy, sometimes you might have to fudge the facts a little bit.

Whatever you do – be careful if you do any international espionage. Wear sunscreen, for goodness sakes!

Covert Affairs shoes tips: Annie tends to opt for closed toe pumps in neutral colors.
