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.

Donny Deutsch, Love Guru, is Set to Take Your Calls

We know the news of Donny Deutsch‘s new Bravo show, Love Calling, broke some time ago, but the cable network just sent out this press release today to remind us how Deutsch is somehow setting a new standard for douchiness that its live premiere is set to air this Thursday at 11pm EST.

Now that the stardom-seeking agency namesake/chairman has given us his views on texting-while-driving PSAs and the football viewing habits of “the gays,” Deutsch is ready to graduate to love doctor as Love Calling will give him the platform to pass on dating/relationship advice via Twitter, Facebook and video conferencing (and lord knows he’s earned the right to do so). Think of it as Loveline for the social media age. On second thought, just try to look up Adam Corolla and Dr. Drew instead.  In the meantime, raise your hands if you think Deutsch’s latest attempt at fame will last longer than “America the Angry.”

Donny Deutsch Continues to Do Anything to Get on TV

During the fourth hour of The Today Show, which basically seems like happy hour at Rockefeller Center, the one and only Donny Deutsch made an appearance at the end of a segment about “The Situation.” Despite looking in pretty damn good shape, Deutsch continues to kill all goodwill by sauntering onto the set and sporting a “Situation” t-shirt. Is he desperately fishing for a revival of The Big Idea?
