Hey, Who Wants Ice Cream at Cannes?

Since the majority of the ad industry is reveling in the French Riviera fiesta that is the Cannes Lions, we’ll hold it down on the homefront and let you know that two folks from Leo Burnett’s London office–Ben Newman and Milo Williams–are driving an ice cream van from their native U.K. to deliver Leo Cornett ice cream to the attendees at this year’s event. The pair will travel through France, Switzerland, Italy and France once again to bring some treats and according to Leo, “They’ll be capturing the highs and lows of their adventure on their blog, twitter and instagram and rocking up to all sorts of Leo Burnett events throughout the week.” You can follow the blokes’ adventures here and here.
