Thanks for clarifying your age. Hope you're okay with it: you used "painfully" twice!

You wrote: "Ads are business expenses, not ways of satiating nostalgic urges."

Really? I thought Mad Men made a pretty good case for the depth and variety of advertising (mostly for ill, I admit). Nostalgia is one of the most powerful forces at work on people or how else would we have been saddled with 45?

All I can say is seeing those two-page spreads in the NYT gives me great pleasure and joy and I am glad he's happy to waste his money on them. He is obviously trying to conjure a vanishing world of theatre and I appreciate that impulse. If you, in all your superannuated wisdom, think it's bullshit, then so be it.

Now nonpayment of the ad agencies I won't try and defend. That's just rude.
