I don't think Don Draper went back to McCann and made the commercial. I think he has found some peace -- lord knows he found plenty of pieces (of tail) during the 60's -- and moved on from advertising (toward what I don't know). The Coke commercial was made by some next-generation Madison Avenue hotshot (the 1970's version of Don Draper) who we were never introduced to.

I've been sitting around for months, swearing up and down that there was NO WAY Don would go back to the McCann sausage factory, and that he didn't write the ad -- then you convinced me in less than two minutes that he probably did. Nicely done, sir.

Had the same interpretation on "I want to buy the world a coke" thanks for the vid.

Do I detect some RLM influence here? Anyways, great stuff; I'd like to see more from you critiquing this show.

Agree 100% he clearly made the commercial. The real question is did Don find himself and become truly happy or did he just go back to the same old Don? That is where the ambiguity comes from. Did he change at all? It is such a cynical and dark ending, he takes counter culture ideals and spins them into a worldwide corporate ad. It's everything Don is, everything Mad Men is, and it's beautiful.

+Aaron Humphreys Apparently Matthew Weiner (in a Hollywood Reporter interview) didn't really see the ad as cynical and, in fact, seemed unable to grasp how it could be by any stretch of the imagination. This frankly bizarre lack of creative intuition shouldn't come as too much of a surprise though. Matthew Weiner was also not able to see what people found so off-putting and inhuman about his son Marten's portrayal of Glen Bishop, who, like his father, is either an alien walking around in human skin or under the control of a heretofore unknown brain parasite.
