Nostalgia - The Kodak Carousel

If I wanted to sum up my dissertation chapter on nostalgia I could do worse than plagiarise this classic clip from the TV series about the advertising industry, Mad Men. In this the final episode Don Draper creates a marketing campaign for Kodak, to sell what Kodak were calling the "Wheel"! He tells a story while going through slides on what he calls a “Carousel”. If you’ve never seen it, it’s worth watching the video clip. It is more poignant if you are familiar with the back story but don't let that spoil the "Kodak Moment".

Read here what the New York Times had to say about this clip.
