And I'm back.


2012 is off to a good start with the announcement of Mad Men season 5.
For obvious reason I like the show, despite people always asking me "So it's like Mad Men?" whenever I tell them I work / freelance in advertising.
But about this teaser poster.
Apparently people are relating it to the 9/11 incident.
Further reading lead me to article about an executive creative director of DDB New York jumping off from a building to his death 3 years ago.
As depressing as that sounds, why can't we simply see a poster as a poster?
How about not reading into things too much and be a kill joy to the fans?
Let a teaser poster tease.
That is my new year resolution.
