Don Draper is a dog…my dog to be exact, but a dog nonetheless. With the historic vintage-inspired step back in time show, Mad Men, coming to a close, Fidose of Reality can’t help but notice the similarities between Don Draper, ad man extraordinaire and Dexter Bryant, PR pooch magnate. Here then, we draw the eerie similarities between the cool, sophisticated Don and the oh-so-handsome, smile inducing Dexter Bryant. Coincidence? Fate? A bit of both…you be the judge:

So now that the series is about to close, this is an Internet mystery worth exploring: Did show creator, Matthew Weiner, (who has 7 letters first name, 6 letters last name just like Dexter’s mom, Darlene Bryant, does) base Don Draper on Dexter Bryant? Dex was born close to the time the series premiered. Hmmmmm……
So what do you think? Coincidence?
