Banana Republic is promoting the fourth season of the award-winning AMC hit show Mad Men with a fashion focus called Mad About Style, including on-line videos about how to dress properly for any occasion. The most popular feature of this Banana Republic Mad Men promotion likely will be the chance to win a walk-on role. Just pick up a ‘ticket’ at any Banana Republic store in New York City, the rest of the U.S. or Canada before August 11th.
