'Mad Men' and Mannequins
The newest publicity poster produced by AMC for Mad Men season 5 has media bloggers buzzing about what it all means. Don Draper's reflection in a window as he gazes upon two manequins that may or may not be a metaphor for his life and what's to be expected when the series premieres on March 25th. Could the naked female mannequin with lingerie dropped at her feet be Megan? Is the male dummy in a classy pajama and robe ensemble Don trying to make this naked undefined sex symbol of plaster something that he wants it to be? Maybe that's my take. The possibilities are endless, and that's what makes this scenery so intriguing.
Mad Men season 5 premieres March 25th at 9pm ET/8pn CT with a two hour special. The second episode to air the following week was directed by Jon Hamm.
