Chip Shot: I’m against picketing, but I don’t know how to show it.

Mad Men Campaign for Heinz Running 50 Years After Don Draper Proposed It

Fifty years ago, in the fictional world of Mad Men, Don Draper pitched a daring ad campaign to Heinz execs, for the brand’s ketchup, that proposed not showing the product at all. Instead, the ads would show close-ups of foods that go great with ketchup—french fries, a cheeseburger, a slice of steak—but without any ketchup in sight.

Don’s proposed tagline: “Pass the Heinz.”

 

 

Now in 2017, the ad is finally running … but on steak?
