Props to Mad Men for getting “Subway Fold” right

This season’s Mad Men kickoff episode included a scene on a train wherein Pete Campbell, a Partner at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce ad agency shows us how to do the “Subway Fold.”

See my previous post (http://perryp.posterous.com/?tag=subwayfold) on how a real person does it — in Atlanta.

Props for that … something that a true New Yorker would do. Especially back in the day.

 

Shlops for screwing up the SCDP gag ad, which you can faintly make up in the scene, since the ad did not run until the next day.  Oh well, even fake newspapers have trouble with ad scheduling once in a while
