Don Draper's Heinz Pitch Will Be Turned Into A Real-Life Ad
Good ideas are timeless.
It's been two years since Mad Men went off the air, and now, one of the ads Don Draper (Jon Hamm) presented on the show will be turned into a real-life campaign.
In the Season 6 episode titled "To Have and to Hold," Don and Stan Rizzo (Jay R. Ferguson) pitched an ad to the makers of Heinz with the slogan "Pass the Heinz."
Heinz ultimately decided to pass on the idea.
In that same episode, Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), who'd previously left Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce for a different agency, presented an ad that was well-received by the company, because it showcased the iconic ketchup bottle front and center.
Peggy's presentation was arguably better than Don's — and it used Don's iconic line from Season 3 with a client who planned to tear down Penn Station...
But Heinz passed on Peggy's pitch, as well.
