"Goodbye to the pavement, hello to my soul!"

I only just got a good look at that new Mad Men poster today--it's been up for a couple weeks--and as a fan of Heaven 17's Penthouse and Pavement, I appreciated the homage.  The drawing style certainly pre-dates the Heaven 17 LP (1981), as does Mad Men's period setting (late '60s), so it would probably be accurate to assume that the Mad Men marketing team is looking at other visual sources, in addition to Penthouse and Pavement.

Since I'm also a big fan of Night Shift, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Penthouse and Pavement's title song's appearance on that 1982 soundtrack.
