This is no "Peggy Olson pitches an idea to an existing client again" on Mad Men. This is a man whose company will collapse if he doesn't come up with something in a matter of days, multiplied by all the other client expectations, ego clashes, competition, lack of management support, in this ad agency. It's witty, hilarious, and fast-paced. Ad Asylum shows not just the historic glam of advertising but the real race and nonsense that is agency work today.
