MAD Responds to the Starbucks Fold-In Ad

TALL JAFFEE DEPT.

If Starbucks’ holiday ad looks a little...familiar, there’s a reason why! The ad’s creator, Andrew Bannecker, used the MAD Fold-In as inspiration. Remarking on the real Fold-ins (in an interview not with us), Bannecker said "Those are insane, this was more simplistic." Hey, Andy — know what else is simple? Giving Fold-in creator, Al Jaffee, some credit in the actual ad! We took the liberty of fiddling with it to correct your oversight.
