Coca-Cola capped off the series finale and now a digital billboard features bottles with the characters' names

During the last scene of Mad Men, which came to an end on Sunday night following a run of seven seasons, the main character Don Draper was seen meditating at a spiritual retreat. Inspiration strikes and he opens his eyes and smiles, with the screen fading to a famous Coca-Cola commercial from 1971 featuring the jingle I’d Like to Buy the World a Coke. The suggestion is that Draper got the idea for the brand’s iconic ‘Hilltop’ ad after his soul-searching journey ending on top of a hill overlooking the ocean.
