It looks like it was made in about 10 minutes from shit from some guy's house. Previously : classroom of the future, according to 1950s Japan.
(via)For those of you unfamiliar, that's Sean Bean as Boromir in "Lord of the Rings" who, before he was killed by a Uruk-hai, uttered the line "One does not simply walk into Mordor."

"It’s OK to do a show like that, but when they announced that the show was going to be about ‘the incredible period of the advertising industry in the 1960s,’ everybody thought it was going to be about me. All over the world I’m called ‘the original mad man.’ My bitch about it is the fact that it’s a show about a bunch of scum bags. Show More Summary
According to the redditor, the instructions were to write "50th" in the red flag.Ha. Good. I fucking hate golf.
This is how. From the press note:"Finns are the most punctual people in Europe. We are very protestant when it comes to work ethics. We work until the eight hours have been completed.
