Quantcast “Mad Men” Vincent Kartheiser Rich Sommer For High Speed Rail (Video)

Vincent Kartheiser has already greened his life by taking the bus or train instead of a car, eating vegetarian and using his neighbor’s john.

Now Kartheiser and his Mad Men co-star Rich Sommer are starring in a PSA for high-speed rail that was created by the public-interest advocacy group U.S. PIRG.

The video is set to debut this Wednesday, March 9, but U.S. PIRG posted a teaser on their Facebook page last week.

The clip shows Kartheiser and Sommer in the Mad Men 1965 setting discussing the possibility of high-speed trains.

Sommer¬†states that “in 40 years” gas will cost almost $1 a gallon and that he’s sure high speed trains will be a hit, given “America always make the right investment.”

Fast forward to 45 + years today and that number is closer to $3/gallon.

Surely, America is making the right investment and rushing its plans to lay the tracks down for transportation that gets cars off the road and saves gas and emissions, not to mention creates jobs?

As expected, not everyone is excited for the plan, such as Florida Gov. Rick Scott who rejected funds for such as project in his state.

However, President Obama would like 80% of Americans to have access to high-speed rail within 25 years and would like to invest several billion to construct such a network, a move expected to create many jobs in the private sector.
