V.O.T.D: Mad Black Men


If you’re a fan of Mad Men, you’ll appreciate Xavier Ruffin’s parody called  Mad Black Men.  In a recent interview with NPR, Ruffin explains why he created the parody.  “I wanted to be a fan of it when it first came out. I just had my own personal differences. Not liking the way blacks were represented in their universe. I just couldn’t get over it.”

Mad Black Men,  is about its protagonist Ron Rapper who gets s a job in the Colored Marketing Department at Sterlin Copper.

“[Rapper] is a hotshot ad executive making a name for himself in the New York scene. It’s just that when he shows up at places, people are thrown off by the fact that he is non-white,” Ruffin explains.

The series includes 6 episodes and the first one is below:
