Tuesday Tease: The New MAD MEN Season 5 Promo Poster is In, Don Draper Ogles a Naked Mannequin

The Mad Men minimalist teaser poster made the rounds mid January 2012.

Now we have this “nonverbal representation” to whet our appetites until Mad Men returns to our collective TVs. Series creator Matthew Weiner had this to say about the image in the New York Times.

“This is a dreamlike image,” Mr. Weiner said, likening it to work of the Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico, who specialized in surreal, mannequin-like figures.

The image is “a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be,” Mr. Weiner said.

“By the end of the season,” he said, “I guarantee you’ll know what it is about.”

A “nonverbal representation” eh? We see the glorious previous 4 seasons of Mad Men, a show about high-powered, fast tallking advertising executives in 1960s New York City, was not a fluke.
