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 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!
Look how many different characters he's done on the Simpsons. At least five I think, not counting Jay Sherman. 1) Llewelyn Sinclair 2) his sister that ran the Ayn Rand School for Tots 3) The art instructor 4) The Shelbyville billionaire 5) Artie Ziff
