Hmm, I'll think about it.
So cool! First?
Mad? As in crazy, anypony that hasn't gone crazy yet, perhaps that's coming up now?
@fanofchaosSo many wanting first, yet they don't realize there's no reward.
Celebrating the 3-Apple lunch?
First Bridesmaids. Then Poltergeist. Now Mad Men.If this is legit, the the Hub has the best advertising department ever.
@Sir Spike-alotactually i wasn't waiting :D I just came and saw this
I got here EARLIER than first!
Well, yeah, it's an ad, it says "The Hub," but what REALLY proves it's legitness is how fucking clever and awesome it is.I love The Hub.
Mad men and ponies. My life is complete.
The Hub has just exceeded my expectations yet again. Well DONE!
Nice mad men spoof, seems legit!
"then* the Hub"Derp.
That's Rainbow Dash in a business suit. I'm just saying.
"Any guesses? Looks official to me!"Nah, on closer inspection, it looks more awesome to me!
Meh, not that interesting except I'd save the newspaper clipping to enshrine in the MLP and peace lovers shrine next to my violent video game collection and gore related fanfiction shrine.
Haha oh man... this is wonderful.
I guess 3-apple lunch is meant to refer to a 3-martini lunch? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-martini_lunch)
Much respect for the Hub's advertising department. Reaching out to any and all potential audiences by blending cute colorful ponies with more mature preexisting media is a bright idea.
Didn't we see Dash dressed similarly in a recent Drawfriends post?
So Rainbow Dash in a suit is now canon?
What pony does that big red eye belong to?
@RainbowYoshiRainbow Dash. A bit of her mane is just barely visible.
Oh my Luna. I need that paper for a poster!
We can make this happen right? We can make the Mad Men intro with ponies? The Simpsons did it.
I went and checked the wiki and there is 2 more AppleJack episodes coming up so they may be advertising them in a sneaky way with the 3 Apple Lunch quote if you count the Sisterhood Social Episode earlier in the season as the first AppleJack episode of the second season. Then again it could be a reference to 3- Martini Lunch as wandering wastrel pointed out.
I found mine in my paper and I posted it up on my wall.
The is the best possible thing! The Hub's ad department is amazing.I remember when I first started watching MLP in April/May, I spent about half an hour trying to re-cast the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce office with ponies.That was my first clue that maybe I was more into this pony show than I realised.
O_OOh wow, that looks like an awesome ad!!! Mad Ponies is something I've never seen done in fanfiction guys. Wouldn't it be great to have one crossover with that? Or at least, a story inspired in it? It could work. I bet there's publicity companies in Equestria.
Excuse me while I squee so loud all of New York hears me! MAD MEN! PONIES! My favorite two things together!!
I LOVE YOU HUB!Needs more rarity and Fluytershy though...
I love these official spoof ads. So much.
Mad Men parody? Ha, oh wow, these ads go above and beyond what is necessary, I love it.And how long til we get a crossover fic now?
Bring more ads on every newspaper in the USA!!!!!!!!!!! ^_^
House keeping!! I come in anyway? I come in anyway.
Dear The Hub,I LOVE YOU!Not signed by Trixie.
Cool ad, thank you Hub!
Has a quality image of this been posted anywhere yet?
Heh I gotta admit, these Hub advertisers hit the bullseye on quality Pony ads every time. This, the Bridlemaids, the "There's a Pony for that," etc.Makes me smile everytime, gotta love it!
Now could this be Mad Men or 12 Angry Men? If it is 12 Angry Men.... well.... lol. 6 Angry Ponies. What would they be on a jury for?
@Sunset Sprinkles Yes, what is it?
@cpbrony As a matter of fact, 6 angry mares is in the fanfiction archive here.
Looks...*puts on sunglasses*Awesome!
The color scheme and font reminds me of Gamestop.
I was hoping their next parody advertisement would be "The Pony with the Dragon Assistant"
Definitely "Mad Men"...refers to the three Martini lunch and the font is basically the same as the "Mad Men" logo-JediPony
does anypony know what page its on?
I'm sure this was a most pleasant surprise to the eight people who still read the Los Angeles Times.
@Princess LunaI want that ad. Please take me to Los Angeles on your back.
@Sunset Sprinkles You are aware that the other me on here, just named Luna, is the older one, right? I'm not even big enough to have anypony on my back.
@Sunset Sprinkles You can have a chariot ride though.
@Princess LunaAw...but you're Princess Luna! You can do anything!A chariot ride will be fine, though. Will you accompany me?
I have never seen mad men, it feels like I'm missing allot in life =P
Seems legitWe require vectors
@Sunset Sprinkles Sorry, I was readying the chariot, the answer is yes.
@zorinlynx Oh, so that's what I heard this morning.If this doesn't say how prominent our dear ponies have gotten, I don't know what does. Brilliant times infinity. YOU ROCK, HUB!!!
@fanofchaos It takes real effort to be last!
I fucking love this.
@Princess LunaRoa- er, sky trip! Onward to Los Angeles!
"Mad Mares" would have been funnier. But still a great ad :)
It's official!http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/376046_287285934653829_119249468124144_756288_317062523_n.jpgThe Hub just posted it on their Facebook.
@ddfIt's theirs. The hub just posted it on their-Nevermind.
I TOTALLY don't get what the ad is referencing to, but I LOVE it all the same!
I love this show's ads.
To bad the toy's aren't as epic as the add's
@Smashmatt202http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mad_Men - This is what the reference is to.
is there a larger version (HQ) of that picture anywhere? i have access to a printer that can print out large glossy posters and giant banners and I'd love to make a poster of that.
Anypony know what section of the paper it was in?
Why can't that be in my paper the Wichita Eagle :(. Guess that's what i get for living in kansas
That is too freaking cool. What's funny is that I've often thought someone should do a pony version of that very Mad Men animation, so to see an OFFICIAL version is just beyond awesome.
OMG YAY!! I saw the Los Angeles Times this moring on my driveway and i was like, "Nah. i aint gonna bother." the i see this and im like " WOOOO HOOOO!!!!"
I still like the, "Ponygiest" ad better. Pinkie looks soooo adorable in it~
People didn't get the reference? Seriously?I mean I've never watched an episode but c'mon...
Yeah, I think we can safely say they're marketing to the adult audience......This, I love.
They need to do an animated version
This is strange ... I've recently been drawing Rainbow Dash in a suit. I've done it three times. Now the official folk are doing it. Tygerbug at Deviantart, if you're curious ...
Both the links are dead. Did something happen?
@Inkan1969http://hushpad.zorin.org/links/mlp/mad_ponies.JPGI hate link rot!That shouldn't go away anytime soon. :)
