A question that's been eating at my brain for a while - you might know that The Crazy Ones' opening credits (youtube.com) ape famous ad campaigns. Does anyone know which brands/ads specifically?

I know Robin Williams's is the We Want You - Uncle Sam ad, and Amanda Setton's is Macy's. I can't figure out the rest. Google didn't help, so I thought I should pose the question to your collective knowledge bank. Help?

Off the top of my head...

SMG=Cover Girl. Hamish Linklater=Absolut Vodka. Not sure about the other guy.

Huh - I've seen every episode and it never dawned on me that they were from famous ad campaigns. It makes sense, though.

I think Wolk is supposed to be the Brad Pitt Chanel #5 ads

SMG and Linklater definitely seem right. The fonts match. I'm not sure Wolk's is Chanel #5 for the same reason, because the font didn't match. They're pretty meticulous about the font, because that's how I managed to identify the others.

I get the feeling it's some sort of clothes brand, but for the life of me I can't think of one that has a logo with faded letters inside a box.

----EDIT-----
Got it! It's gotta be this Wrangler ad (garyengbergoutdoors.com). The font matches!

I love the theme song though, it's now my ringtone.

For what its worth, my wife's hooked on the series after seeing last weeks' episode.
