The Wrath of Cannes Returns, Now with Kickstarter-Aided Beer Battle

After taking a year off to just party down and not award its time-honored head-up-ass trophy to anyone, New York-based agency Woods Witt Dealy & Sons has resurrected its annual Cannes-tidote dubbed The Wrath of Cannes. Judging returns on the 2013 go-around, which will take place on June 20 in the Big Apple (location TBD) while the majority of the industry indulges in French Riviera revelry. Meanwhile, this year’s Wrath is all about one thing: beer. WWD&S has concocted its own brew brand called Wrath of Cannes Bitter Ale, and while they have a recipe, a label design (see below) and a brewer in tow, the agency needs some monetary flow to actually realize its booze-soaked dreams.

 

And so, channeling the spirits of Zach Braff, Kristen Bell and many others before them, WWD&S wants to go the crowdfunding route via Kickstarter, and to do so, they’re giving potential Wrath entrants a simple brief. To break it down, you can download this brief (.pdf), show up to the party early and get free beer, have your ideas judged, perhaps get friends to donate….and drink more beer. The rest of the info is here. Stay thirsty, my friends.
