Mad Men’s Fake Sexist Commercial

Mad Men’s second season is coming to Australia, and they’re advertising it sneakily with this fake commercial for a pots and pans company that is sure to send modern ladies rushing to the website to complain. Now your husbands meals can look as pretty as you do:

The url, of course, goes to a site that quickly reveals itself to be about Mad Men, with the oddly literal tagline “Advertising In The ’60s” and an explanation that sexist ads were part of the game back then. It’s a little less subtle than necessary, but I guess they don’t want to offend any delicate lady sensibilities. (Via AdRants.)
