Brazilian ad agency Moma channeled Don Draper and Peggy Olson with a set of fictional ads that have been floating around the Internet. With posters for Facebook, Youtube and Skype, the ads imagine how these modern technologies would be marketed circa 1963—and the results are appropriately Jetsons-inspired. The sepia-toned posters boast such chipper slogans as, “Striking, Miraculous Social Team-up!” and are as clean as an episode of Leave it to Beaver.
