What is a Mad Man?
The term "Mad Men" is a 1960s-era slang term used to describe the advertising executives of Madison Avenue in New York City, the hub of the advertising industry in the United States at the time.
The phrase gained widespread recognition through the critically acclaimed TV show "Mad Men," which aired from 2007 to 2015. The term encapsulates the high-pressure, often cutthroat world of advertising, along with its culture of creativity, hard drinking, and sexism that was prevalent during the mid-20th century.
The "Mad Men" were responsible for crafting compelling narratives and iconic brand identities that deeply influenced consumer culture.
