Many "Mad Men" Fans Out There?

Oct 12, 2009
I've probably only watched a total of 45 minutes of “Mad Men”. But it seems like plenty of people around me love the show, and judging by the fact it’s still on air, it’s got a strong following. So when a co-worker alerted me that machinery brand John Deere made an appearance on the show, and contributed in a major way to the plot, I took interest in the particular episode entitled “Guy Walks Into an Advertising Agency,” which is number 6 in the third season.
Season 3 of "Mad Men" is set in 1963, the year John Deere started to manufacture and sell garden tractors. In the show, character Ken rides a lawn tractor into the agency’s office after he’s secured the machinery maker as a client.

Then during an office party, the employees don’t exactly practice safe equipment operation. I won’t ruin the ending for anyone who has a queasy stomach or is waiting to watch the episode on their DVR or Netflix.
