Was just reading an old article from the NYTimes mag about “Mad Men” and they talked to several ad men who were on Mad Ave in the ’60s.  Some say the show is completely inaccurate, others that it’s spot on.  But Jerry Della Femina sounds like my kinda guy…

He now owns his sixth agency, Della Femina Rothschild Jeary & Partners, and wrote a best-selling account of his early advertising career in 1970. Its title was his proposed slogan for the Japanese-owned Panasonic account when he was creative director at Ted Bates: “From Those Wonderful Folks Who Gave You Pearl Harbor.”
