Mad Men Did Not Pay to Use Iconic Coca-Cola Ad in Series Finale

Originally posted 05/19/2015 02:00PM

While it may be one of the most famous ads in television history, Mad Men didn't shell out a dime to use the iconic Coca-Cola spot in the series finale of the AMC show.

When asked if the network paid to use the original ad in the highly anticipated final episode, a spokesperson for the company confirmed to PEOPLE, "No money exchanged hands."

But just because Coca-Cola played a big part in the finale doesn't mean the company knew ahead of time how Don Draper would say goodbye.

Mad Men Finale Recap: Acclaimed Drama Comes to a Quiet Close

"You only like the beginnings of things," someone once told Don Draper (Jon Hamm). Well, Don isn't the only one. As viewers, we love the beginnings of things: Remember the excitement of discovering this little 1960s drama eight years ago on some channel called AMC? The beginnings are always so full of possibility. Maybe that’s why, for all of our wild theories about what will happen, the endings never satisfy us.

As I wrote last week, it's often hard to tell the difference between endings and beginnings on Mad Men. Don Draper keeps starting over, only to find himself right back where he started. This show is a time machine, going backward and forward, always taking us back to the same place. "You can put this behind you," Don tells Anna's (Melinda Page Hamilton) niece, Stephanie (Caity Lotz). "It's easier if you move forward." But moving forward is moving backward. Progress doesn't exist.

All good things must come to an end – and that cliché extends to great things like Mad Men.

"The last day of shooting was so sad," costume designer Janie Bryant tells PEOPLE of being on set for the last day of filming the AMC drama's seventhand final – season. "The whole entire cast showed up on set. And, with each actor wrapping their last scene, everyone was just crying like crazy."

Christina Hendricks: Mad Men Changed My Life in 'Every Single Way'

Originally posted 04/04/2015 06:00PM

In nearly eight years since she made her debut as Mad Men's Joan Holloway (now Harris), Christina Hendricks can happily say almost everything about her world has changed.

"My life has pretty much changed in every single way," Hendricks tells PEOPLE. "Except for my friends and my family."

One perk of starring on an iconic show? You get accolades from world leaders and, yes, fellow award-winning redheads.

"There are so many people that we've gotten to meet that I've admired for so long. Like the President or Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep. They come up and say, 'I love the show,' and you're just sort of gobsmacked," says Hendricks, 39.

"[I was] coming out of a bathroom and Julianne Moore said, 'You're wonderful on the show,' " Hendricks remembers. "I respect her more than almost any actress in the world."

Don Draper in the '70s? We Speculate What Could Happen in Mad Men's Final Episodes

Mad Men in the '70s? We Speculate What Could Happen

Originally posted 03/31/2015 07:20PM

While Mad Men fans won't know for sure until Sunday's premiere, it's been widely speculated online that the second half of the show's final season won't pick up where the first half left off. In fact, it may skip ahead … to the 1970s.



It may seem hard to imagine Mad Men in any time period other than the '60s, but how else to explain those outfits? Or the trailer's use of Diana Ross's "Love Hangover," which debuted in 1976? And most importantly, what will happen to our beloved but broken characters in this new decade?

We let our imaginations run wild.
