May the Ads Be Ever in Your Favor: Mad Men Meets the Hunger Games!
With all of the hype surrounding them, these two feminist favorites are begging to be combined somehow. While it's difficult to imagine Katniss Everdeen clocking in at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (you know she wouldn't put up with Roger's shenanigans for one second), picturing the buttoned-up SCDP execs fighting to the death in a Panem arena is easy—with all of their lying, cheating, and conniving, these folks have been training for the Hunger Games their entire lives without realizing it.
So what would happen if the Capitol sent 24 characters from Mad Men to the arena to kill or be killed? Would Betty's ennui be enough to take on Don's powers of manipulation? Does Sally have what it takes to compete against Joan? Can Roger convince his sponsors to keep the booze coming? Which Mad Men tribute truly has the odds ever in their favor?
We imagined said SCDP Hunger Games in the infographic below. Take a look at our arena, and vote in our poll to determine which tribute would be the victor! (Click on the image for a larger version, click here to download a .doc file description of the infographic).
Vote for your favorite tribute in our poll, and let us know in the comments how you think the games might go down. Who would the final two be? The first to die? Who'd form alliances and who'd be an outcast? SO MANY SCENARIOS! Matt Weiner, get on this for season six please.
