Wrath Wrap: You, Me and Tony Hawk Make Three

New York agency Woods, Witt Dealy & Sons celebrated its fifth year of Wrath of Cannes with a soiree at Coney Island bar Cha Cha’s Club Atlantis last night, and yes, the special guest/judge was none other than Tony Hawk. The skating legend, joined by his creative director Jamie Muelhausen and Derek Richardson, VP of his brand, Birdhouse, agreed with the rest of us judges that Nikolaus Drellow‘s “Flip the F*ck Out” effort was tops among the five finalists. Despite the arduous trek to get there, twas a fun night for all (and yes, the $1 Porkslap brews did help). Anyhow, check out why Drellow won the infamous head up his own ass trophy below.

Wrath Of Cannes = Tonight

For those of you who are not partying overseas at Cannes and are stuck here in NYC, take solace that yours truly, along with some guy named Tony Hawk, will serve as judge and reveler at Wrath of Cannes. Yes, hometown agency Wood, Witt Dealy & Sons is throwing down another Coney Island soiree to mark the party, which bills itself as the “bitter response to the self-congratulating, glad-handing, marblebag-wearing, Dom-swilling, bronzer-slathered soirees that fester up on the beach in Cannes.” Yeah, we can’t sum it up any better. Hopefully, we’ll see you there!

Wrath of Cannes is Coming…with Tony Hawk Included

It’s almost that time of year for Wrath of Cannes, the event created by Woods Witt Dealy & Sons that’s a “bitter response to the self-congratulating, glad-handing, marblebag-wearing, Dom-swilling, bronzer-slathered soirees that fester up on the beach in Cannes” according to agency co-founder/CD Harry Woods.

But the parties involved are doing things a bit differently with the fifth installment of WoC by giving entrants a brief: Broaden the awareness and appeal of Tony Hawk’s Birdhouse brand without selling out. Yep, that Tony Hawk, who’s also playing judge and whose skateboarding company is also a sponsor of the Wrath (full disclosure: yours truly is also judging–hey, blame them, not us if you need to). Deadline for entries is June 17, fyi.

Anyhow, Cha Cha’s Club Atlantis in Coney Island will play host to the Wrath of Cannes, which takes place on June 23. Hey, who needs Pencils and Lions when you have a trophy of a man’s head up his arse–aka the Grand Coney–in hand? Check out a video of a sleepy-looking Hawk introducing the event.
