Obama Gets the ‘Mad Men’ Treatment in ‘Chief Exec’
‘Mad Men‘ returned for its fifth season on Sunday night. Not only has a lot changed for the folks at Sterling Cooper Draper Price during their 17 month TV hiatus, but a lot has changed for those of us in the real world.
Take Barack Obama, for example. 17 months ago, the President wasn’t thinking about Mitt Romney or raising gas prices. But now those are just some of the challenges on his plate. With that in mind, Will Rabbe offers his take on the iconic ‘Mad Men’ opening sequence, but with Obama in the place of Don Draper.
The video was played on ‘The Chris Matthews Show’ Sunday, in anticipation of the ‘Mad Men’ premiere. According to Rabbe, the reworked opening was created through a combination of AfterEffects, Cinema 4D and Photoshop.
So what do you think? Does the “Obama as Don Draper” theme work? If you’d like to learn more about how the video was made, check out Rabbe’s blog.
