Amazing 8-bit Youtube adventure game released, inadvertently promotes new Mad Men season

There's little more to say than: this is undeniably brilliant.
Created independently, but inadvertently promoting the new season of everybody's favourite misogynistic TV show Mad Men, an 8-bit (think NES graphics – you know, the one before the Super Nintendo/SNES) Youtube game has been launched, complete with retro sounds.
The game takes places right after season four, and the goal is to reverse the fortunes of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.
It's just incredibly clever, and depending on which adventure choices you make, you'll see one of three different endings. Personally, I chose one where Betty shoots Don. You know, just for shits and giggles.
Watch/play it below – go on, it's Friday and those timesheets can surely wait.
The game was created by the Fine Brothers – Benny and Rafi – an award winning duo whose production team were also behind similar 8-bit iterations of Twilight and Saved by the Bell.
