Let’s All Tag the ‘Mad Men’ Season 5 Poster

By now, you’ve probably seen the minimalist posters advertising the March 25 return of AMC’s Mad Men. Featuring only the season 5 premiere date and an image of the “falling man” from the series’ opening credit sequence, all that white space is providing an impromptu canvas for the Sharpie-toting commuters of the New York subway system.

Now, aside from some controversial comparisons to the infamous 9/11 “Falling Man” photo, the ad is no doubt upsetting whoever is in charge of making the subway graffiti-free. Some of the more artistic interpretations of the poster are being erased, stifling the creativity of many seeking an outlet for their ingenuity. Luckily, Gothamist is providing a blank canvas for those skilled in the way of Photoshop, asking that any additional tweaks be sent to photos@gothamist.com and adding,  “if they don’t suck we might run a few here.”

Have at it, art directors and graphic designers among you, and show us that you don’t suck.
