Mad Men and Draping

12 Jun


Mad Men Season 5 wrapped up this Sunday with the highest ratings the show has ever had and considering how long fans had to wait for season 5, it’s no wonder.  This got me to thinking about an Anderson Cooper episode I saw in March featuring John Hamm (Don Draper) and John Slattery (Roger Sterling).  Cooper brought up a phenomenon called Draping.  Draping is based on the opening image of Mad Men, which shows Don Draper with his right arm extended to the side.  Fans love this image so much they’ve been taking photos of themselves all over the place in a similar pose.  Check out the Tumblr link below for more examples.
