As the show goes, fantastic. But, you know, when I was starting out, I wasn’t the agency, I was the guy who carried out the agency’s wishes. It was very, very competitive, because it’s all about cost against creativity against ‘what are you going to deliver?’ The hot agencies would go after these so-called hot directors, and I was one of them for 20 years. That was my film school.
-Ridley Scott after being asked “What do you think of Mad Men?”
Scott worked as an advertiser in the 1960s
