It Looks Like Someone’s Fulfilling Our Dreams at Cannes

 

Since we’re once again staying put here in the States during all the Cannes Lions revelry, we’re happy to see that a few folks have taken it upon themselves to bring to fruition what we were always destined to do one day at the Festival via an effort called “Busted at Cannes.”

We did a little digging, and yes, we’ve been told that this is a side project concocted by a couple of EVB staffers including the San Francisco-based agency’s VP, director of technology & innovation, Aaron McGuire, whose name is actually plastered all over the Busted site. Check out the demo video below that just launched to get more of the gist. And no, that Donny Deutsch pic will never get old. Update: The Deutsch image has been removed, so we have the above shot of folks like Colleen DeCourcy and Brian Morrissey instead.

Mall Shoppers, Gear Up for the “LOLiday Season”

No digitally savvy shopaholic’s visit to his or her local mall over the next month is complete without a new holiday-themed mobile app for download. Fortunately for patrons of Westfield Malls, they now have access to the “LOLiday App,” courtesy of the minds at EVB, who are no strangers to holiday projects.

After downloading the app for iPhone, Android or iPad2,  shoppers can then visit the “LOLiday Card Set” at their local participating Westfield Mall. Here, using the magic of mobile technology and augmented reality, shoppers can insert images of themselves into wacky holiday scenes. Why would the nation’s consumers want to insert themselves into a photo that depicts them kissing a buff, shirtless Santa Claus? Well, ladies and gentlemen, they do it for the LOLZ (see also: “lulz”). And, for those avoiding the mall completely or still incapacitated after suffering injuries from a Black Friday Wal-Mart stampede, a completely new silly photo experience awaits on the LOLiday Cards website.

Remember, a new iPad starts at $499 retail, but LOLZ are free. So, this holiday season, give the gift of laughter, and you might even win $10,000 as part of Westfield Mall’s “Laughing All the Way Sweepstakes.” Participating malls and credits follow after the jump.
