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?
I think Wolk is supposed to be the Brad Pitt Chanel #5 ads
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
That the universe was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms, I will no more believe than that the accidental jumbling of the alphabet would fall into a most ingenious treatise of philosophy - Swift
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!
In reality, the stuff that's going to make Fallon a hit probably won't happen any time soon. I'll check it out tonight, just to see it (missed it last night), but if it does get into it's swing it probably won't be for another 6 months, not 4 weeks.
