"Mad Men" season 5 spoiler alert!
Don Draper arrives at the headquarters of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce's new client, Consolidated Orange Cone, to pitch ideas for an upcoming ad campaign.
As he heads in to the meeting, Don is suddenly plagued by misgivings about the proposed slogans:
"Orange You Glad You Went With Consolidated?"
"You'd Have To Have A Heart Of Stone Not To Love An Orange Cone!"
"The Hip Cone With The Now Kind Of Youthful Vibe For Today's With-It Roads"
"Think Of Them As The Hats Of Kooky Witches Who Promote Traffic Safety"
The presentation goes poorly and Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce loses the account. However, Don gets the last laugh, as orange road cones fail to catch on as a consumer item and Consolidated Orange Cone is bought out by National Pointy.
