[[When Ted Chaugh left the room while Stan was on the phone in the finale...]]
Having heard that Don had run off and was in trouble he raced off, got Don's call to the McCann traced, and flew off in his plane to Big Sur to save him.

They look similar, the characters are similar, Rich Sommer even sounds like Chris Parnell. Finally, the median time period for Archer, based on its anachronisms, is somewhere in the mid-70s approximately after Mad Men ends.

[[WMG: Mad Men is a {{Prequel}} to ''Series/UnbreakableKimmySchmidt'']]
The Mad Men ends with Don finding an epiphany at the Hippie Commune. That epiphany is that he should form his own cult and change his identity to Reverend Wayne. Doing so, he can convince women that the Apocalypse is coming traps them in his bunker.

Related to some of the other WMGS, especially the ones where Don has been dead all along and/or EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory, this goes a little further. Don has been dead since around season 5 with the best guess being that he actually drowned in that swimming pool. The HumiliationConga and arduous road to a better life have been his path through Inferno and up through Purgatory on his way to Heaven. There's even some name similarities, specifically Don: Dante the Character, Roger: Virgil and Betty: Beatrice.

[[WMG: The ending is the beginning]]
* The ending is the beginning sort of deal. Don jumps out of His office (suicide). He falls apart surrounded by the women and alcohol shown in the sequence. He's buried in his work (the top shot with I'm falling through those pictures).
And that iconic shot of him smoking in a couch? Shout out to the painting of The Death of Morat w/ a POV from the back and flipped vertically. Just as Morat tends to his chronic condition in a tub, draper tends to his alcoholism, womanizing, smoking and vices at work in that couch. And both die in their respective healing atmospheres (tub/couch)

The Sixties are over. Don is starting to realize that no one really needs him: Sally is independent, Betty is finally over him, and (as far as Don knows) the former [=SC&P=] staff are settling in nicely at [=McCann=]. His conversations with Diana implied that he was fed up with New York. Dick Whitman created Don Draper to escape his dismal life. Now that Don's life is dismal once more, he needs a new identity.

The credits jumper is Don, but it's metaphorical. The jumper represents Don's realization that he needs to end his life as Don Draper if he wants happiness.
