Come on, AMC! Seriously? This is the best you can do? A 15-second slide show of promo photos we’ve already seen? We’re only a month now away from the two-hour season premiere of Mad Men, and this is all that Matt Weiner is giving us? Meanwhile, HBO’s Game of Thrones, which debuts a week earlier, has given us tons of images, 17 teaser trailers, a full-length trailer, an extended full-length trailer, and Khaleesi half naked in GQ magazine. These shows are competing against each other on the same damn night, and right now, Game of Thrones is kicking Mad Men’s ass in the marketing department.
In fact, what do we know about the upcoming season of Mad Men? Pretty much nothing. I mean, Jon Hamm voicing on toilet on Bob’s Burgers is the best promotion Mad Men has gotten so far. What do we learn from this promo trailer? NOTHING. The closer we get to the premiere date, and the less promotional material that is released, the more curious I am … oh, I see how that works. You’re going to make us watch the season premiere to find out what the hell is going on.
You’re goddamn geniuses, AMC. Check out the unrevealing promo via TV Guide.
