WaPo’s Mad Men Photoshoot

By Matt Van Hoven 

It was brought to our attention that a photo shoot similar to that of Red Tettemer was done earlier this week. In fact, a lil’ Washington Post video of the event was posted here, on WaPo.com. The difference between the two: WaPo’s included a myriad of D.C. area ad-execs, whereas RT’s only had its own addies.

See Red Tettemer’s photo, here.

We’re curious as to who had the idea first: the chicken or the older looking chicken. You decide which is which, and use the poll below to voice (erm, click) your vote.

See the video after the jump. Thanks Rebecca!

My favorite quip from the WaPo article came from Chuck Husak, creative director of August, Lang & Husak in Bethesda.

Washington’s ad clients generally don’t have big bucks to blow like their New York brethren, Husak said.

He recalled a recent TV ad by a New York agency, a slickly produced bit in which a robotic woman is revealed to have a keg of beer inside her.

“They get away with that kind of un-conceptual tripe because the execution is so polished,” Husak said. “In D.C., no one has $700,000 to throw at a non-starter idea like that.”
