|Megan (Jessica Pare) and Don (Jon Hamm) patronize Heinz's wish to have The Rolling Stones as pitchmen.|
One bit that always piques our interest is characters attending a concert. In season three, we had an art director go see "the" Bob Dylan; in season four, Don took Sally to see The Beatles' Shea Stadium concert; so it only makes sense that we now get a Rolling Stones concert. Seeing Don and Harry backstage was amusing, as Harry still thinks he can identify with the youth market, yet is easily duped by faux Stones. When one groupie scoffs at the notion of the Stones doing a TV jingle, Don points out that they've done it before, selling cereal in England just three years prior.
And that ad? An original song written to hawk Rice Krispies cereal, here in all its 1963 glory:
"Wake up in the morning and there's a crackle in your face." That's what your groupie said.

*How ironic to see Sally eating just a few bites of her sundae and pushing it away, while Betty eagerly finishes it off. It wasn't that long ago she was chastising her daughter for being overweight.
