Heinz Is Using Don Draper’s “Pass the Heinz” Ads

Heinz has finally approved Don Draper’s Pass the Heinz ads from Mad Men. The original ads that his clients at Heinz weren’t in any way pleased with featured close-ups of fries, a cheeseburger and a slice a steak all just waiting for a squirt of ketchup with the simple tagline “Pass the Heinz.” Each of the iconic ads was recreated from the ground up by firm David Miami to look exactly the same as the ads created by Sterling Cooper Draper Price. The modern iterations of the ads will run on billboards in NYC, the New York Post and Heinz’s social media, with the fries also getting a run in Variety. David Miami is sharing creative credit with SCDP for the ads (Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner signed off on the idea), and even if you don’t get the Mad Men connection the ads are still effective. It’s the latest example of life imitating art imitating life.

We’re not sure when the whole carry your wallet in your back pocket thing started, but we’re not big fans. Not only does it make it easier for pickpockets to swipe your cards and cash, but sitting on a wallet all day isn’t exactly what we’d call “comfortable.” That’s why we endorse the front-pocket wallet, and few versions are smarter and sleeker than the Wally Bifold. The Wally Bifold is a wallet distilled to the essentials. By eliminating unnecessary bulk, Distil Union crafted the Wally Bifold to hold as much as your standard bifold—up to 12 cards and 30 bills—but in a package that slips easily into the front pocket of your jeans.
