From Mad Men - 3x04 - The Arrangements: the Patio Diet Cola advertisement imitating the opening scene from Bye Bye Birdie.

I tried my best to sync it up. The most logical way for me to do that was to use audio cues: some kind of brass instrument was prominent and easy to pick up on, so I used that. I separated the audio: left is the original and right is the Patio Diet Cola ad from Mad Men. As you can see for yourself, the ad is not "an exact copy, frame for frame" as Ken Cosgrove says. It's pretty close though, though it's not as close as the Dirty Dancing scene from How I Met Your Mother (see my other videos for that one).
