Over the past few seasons in AMC’s hit television series ‘Mad Men’, a number of actual brands have appeared as clients of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

These clients include Playtex, Kodak, Lucky Strikes and Samsonite.

The ads on the show look impressive, but have you ever wondered what the real ads for the brands looked like in the ‘60s?

Thanks to Business Insider, you can now compare the ads created for the show with those that actually appeared in real life back in then.

The website noted that what you actually see on ‘Mad Men’ is “vastly different” than the advertising put out in the past.
