Best take of Mad Men first season

The embedded movie (above) is quite annoying if you want to watch the best few minutes of the first season of Mad Men. But I found the way Rachels English uses it to help improve your American English accent. They've put up a fully dedicated website with listen/repeat exercises, it's called the American English Pronunciation Guide.

Unfortunately the original video cannot be embedded due to a content claim by AMC. You can watch the uncut version on YouTube. In this scene Don pitches a campaign to Kodak for their new slide projector. It's a thrilling scene, certainly for those who ever had the experience of pitching a new campaign idea to win a new account.
