Meet Don Draper, the Actual Mastermind of Timeline

This landed in our tips box just a few minutes ago and it’s now already all over the Twitterverse, but yes, here’s Facebook’s newest feature Timeline as interpreted by Don Draper and the world of Mad Men. Draper’s steely, slick slideshow presentation coupled with the music makes for quite the dramatic promotion in what has to be one of the most clever video mashups we’ve seen in a while.

While this brief clip may be enjoyable for the moment, many brands out there may not be doing backflips in the near future as there are reports out now which say that the actual Timeline could spell bad news–though the objective of it seems to be to let brands become more social.

Update: Embed disable on the original YouTube link killed this original post from yesterday afternoon, sorry. Here we go again if you haven’t seen yet, which we doubt.
