McCann Erickson welcomes Sterling Cooper

Mad MenSo we all saw legendary ad agency McCann Erickson buy Sterling Cooper in the season finale of Mad Men. Some people might not know that McCann Erickson is a real-life ad agency (that's one of the reasons I love this show, they use real companies and products). Well, the company welcomes Sterling Cooper in this video on their web site.

The agency is also buying big ads in magazines like Adweek and Brandweek to welcome Sterling Cooper. Has their ever been a show based in a particular industry that is loved by the real-life industry it depicts more than Mad Men?

It allows the Ad industry to have a 'oot print on TV other than commercials.

I love that they conveniently edited out the derisive comments made in the Mad Men finale about McCann/Erickson in their video, and the general plot point that all the principals fled Sterling Cooper because they wanted nothing to do with them.

Guess they weren't bothered by being called a "sausage factory" since they got so much free name dropping!
