With many Americans looking forward to the final episode of the hit TV show Mad Men on Sunday, AMC created a video event to involve fans by “recreating” scenes from the pilot episode, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” to produce a “Fan Cut.” We are thrilled to be part of this effort as a clip produced by HY Connect made the final “Fan Cut.”
AMC identified some 154 segments of the first episode and invited the public to “claim” which scene they were interested in recreating. Submissions were narrowed down the top 5 with a single submission for each “cut” selected for the final version.
HY Connect employees claimed the scene “The Best Creative Director in New York” and chose to recreate the part in which Don Draper meets a new client, expecting a man. To his surprise, it’s a woman. However, in HY’s modern-day fashion, we flipped the gender roles. See for yourself.
