New York-based agency, Leroy + Clarkson asks the question you may (or may not) have been asking yourself. What if Mad Men were reimagined as a '70s Blaxploitation? Big afros, combs and ubiquitous funk music, you dig?
Just last month Ad Age spoke to "Mad Black Men" creator Xavier Ruffins about the representation of African Americans in Matthew Wiener's hit AMC series. Mr. Ruffins' web dramedy approaches the subject satirically.
This agency, however, dives headfirst into the genre made famous by Shaft and Foxy Brown with "Don-O-Mite," a parody trailer. The title character, a gun-wielding, more colorfully dressed version of Don Draper is still the magic man in a struggling creative shop. His supporting cast is made up of amplified takes on the original characters. Include Black Peggy Olson -- whose proficiency in spoken-word saves the day -- and Joan "Sugar Hills" Holloway -- whose attitude is surprisingly similar to the original character's.
