Mad Men and The Falling Man

I love Mad Men

I love Mad Men.  To promote the new season that kicks off March 25, they've released artwork showing a man in a suit falling.


If you've ever watched Mad Men, you know that falling man is from the title sequence.  Here it is:

Some are suggesting the new Mad Men poster is too reminiscent of The Falling Man from 9/11.  The Falling Man is a photograph taken by Associated Press photographer Richard Drew of a man falling from the North Tower of the World Trade Center.


This is much ado about nothing.  The Mad Men promo is pure Mad Men, and pretty cool.  I don't believe it's trying to mimic 9/11 imagery.  What do you think?

I can't wait until March 25.
