Cans Get Wild at Cannes

You can say awards shows don’t matter. “Cannes?” you said, sitting at home playing XBOX last week from your home in the States as your Facebook was flooded with photos of ad industry folks hobnobbing and drinking copious amounts of alcohol in beautiful France. “Why would I would to go to that self-congratulatory festival of fakeness with people I hate? Besides, I hate flying, and I’m glad to have a week away from those annoying pricks at my office.” But, be honest, you were jealous you weren’t there. It’s okay. You’re not alone.

Pictures of Cannes” is a Tumblr blog from freelance L.A. ACD/CW Cooper Olson that was, “Born from sitting in the US last week watching everyone’s gloaty pictures wash in from Coolsville.” So, watch as Arizona Ice Tea and Del Monte French Style Green Beans gossip on the beach over who came out of who’s hotel room the night before. See Pringles get ready to win some Cyber Lions. And, laugh along with beach shenanigans as Manwich buries its CCO Dubugue Ham in the sand. Cannes, man. It was just crazy.
