Grandpa Gene Wins Mad Men Quiz at Trestle Inn

We had an awesome time at the Trestle on Sunday with our Mad Men quiz. In fact (dare I say it?) I kind of think the quiz was a little better than the premiere (was it just me, or was the premiere kind of boring?). Anyways, Grandpa Gene (above) came away with an thrilling 130-126 win over Popesack Resurrected (It was a 5 round quiz). Great bar, great drink specials, and a pretty damn fun quiz. We’re going to do an All-Philly quiz there at the end of April. Details coming soon. Here is the products round for those of you who missed it.

1. What product is promoted by comedian Jimmy Barrett?

2.  What diet cola did Pepsi make in 1963, in the show inspiring an ad that featured an Ann Margaret lookalike singing the opening number to Bye Bye Birdie?

3. Peggy’s first account is as a junior copywriter with this skin care company.

4. What airline do they advertise for right after a horrific plane crash, dropping Mohawk Air in the process?

5. What clothing company did Don give an ad featuring a nude model flashing the audience and the headline limit your exposure?

6. There were some who thought that this carmaker,  owned by General Motors, bought product placement, until Betty vomited in the car’s interior.

7. When Ken Cosgrove landed this account early in season 3, results were disastrous.

9. What product does Betty purchase for a dinner party, not realizing that Don had told Duck previously that Betty was the market for said product?
