By Darrick Thomas on
(AMC) If Mad Men's taught me anything about advertising — other than the fact that alcoholism was rampant in 1950s Madison Avenue — it's that sometimes a marketing strategy looks and sounds a lot better on paper than it does in real life.

Mad Men fans know Pete Campbell can be kind of a dick, but, in a turn of follicular karma, he's paying for it with a hairline that's disappearing faster than Don Draper's supply scotch. But where does that leave Vincent Kartheiser, the man who plays Campbell, when the show's done filming. The answer: not in a good place. A lot of people think Pete Campbell's hair is Vincent Karheiser's hair, but those people are wrong. Just check out poor Vinnie at the Mad Men season 7 premiere party:Yeah, he...Read Full Story
