Darren Stephens Hall Of Fame

As some of you may know the Productive Sweatpants have been relegated to evening wear starting this week. And there has been some question as to what would happen to Productive Sweatpants. Well my friends, the staff here at PS is here to let you know that your entertainment needs will be met with the same regularity that you've grown to love over the past couple of months. And likely we'll be inspired with a new segment or two from time to time. Which leads to this brand spanking new segment we're calling the Darren Stephens Hall Of Fame.

For those of you who don't remember the great Darren Stephens, he was Samantha's husband on Bewitched in the 60's TV show "Bewitched". And more importantly he was an executive at the fictitious advertising agency McMann and Tate. In honor of Darren Stephens and the great work he did striving to be Don Draper, we're going to look at advertising that we're enjoying at the moment.

So without further adieu here are the inaugural entries into the Darren Stephens Hall Of Fame

Snickers - "Game"


Just a brilliant way to show what hunger can do to you. Plus seeing Betty White and Ab Vigoda getting laid out is priceless.

ESPN Sportscenter - "Shaun White"


Been a fan of most of the Sports Center spots for a while now, this one is no exception. The fact that this campaign has had the life its had and is still able to be funny is a testament to its quality.

Toyota Sienna - "Meet The Parents"


This just cracked my up the first time I saw it. Although I'm not sure what kind of light it paints Sienna owner in. But from a pure performance standpoint it's great.

Old Spice - "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like"


This is just plain brilliant. I think Old Spice has done a great job of being the anti-Axe Douche grooming product. And for that they should be applauded. Oh and I'm on a horse.

And as a special shout out to one of the best teams I've worked with and their recent best in show at the KC Addys. Congrats Paul and Becky!!!

Hostess Cupcakes - "Filling 90 Years with fun"
