RESPONSE: Don Draper Presents Facebook

1) I've never seen Mad Men, despite -- and possibly because of -- all of the glowing raves everyone I know gives the show, but damn I can't ignore how compelling this scene is set up -- even in a parody!

2) It's pretty telling how spot-on the Mad Men commentary is here, that they can take it off one product ("Kodak Carosel") and put it on another product ("Facebook Timeline") and it hits the mark perfectly.

3) Also, in terms of smartly constructing a parody, kudos to the man who put this together in such a way that it preserves the emotional power of Don Draper's back-story.
