'Mad Men'-Inspired Icy Coolness for a Sweltering Summer Day

Mad Men Opening Titles Re-Design from Paul Rogers on Vimeo.

While we won’t be able to enjoy any new installments of Don Draper, Peggy Olson, Roger Sterling and the gang until next year -- likely when there’ll be snow on the ground here in the Boston area -- illustrator Paul Rogers has created a refreshing new, 1960s-styled intro for Mad Men that’s so cool it can take a bit of the edge off of this heat wave.

Watching this makes me feel as though I’ve been transported back to the early 1960s, when TVs were boxy behemoths wearing rabbit ears and central AC wasn’t as prominent in American homes as it is today.
