There was a time when licensing rights for movies and television was relatively inexpensive. Free advertising was often the thought, and you'd have a song like 'Thriller' show up in something like 'Revenge of the Nerds.' That time has long past, and now it can cost an arm and a leg to get a hit song. To get The Beatles 'Tomorrow Never Knows,' it cost 'Mad Men' around a quarter of a million dollars.

Amidst all the excitement of 'Mad Men's last episode "Signal 30," what with Pete Campbell getting knocked out by one Lane Pryce, or perhaps the inescapable void of color created by Don Draper's sport coat, we might have missed 'Mad Men's attention to detail in using real-life car company Jaguar as a plot point.  But guess who's laughing now?
