Bob Garfield Picks Cannes Winners
Bob Garfield is over at Cannes having a great time but, at that same time, realizing its days as an industry event are numbered. Of course, no one over there on an all expenses paid trip wants to talk about that. All they want to talk about are cool TV spots. Bob thinks the Guinness Noitulove" ad should win the Grand Prix. That's that ad that follows three guys moving backwards in time from barstools to per-historic water's edge ending with "Good things come to those who wait." We'd agree. It's good. Bob does mention Carlton Draught's Big Ad which we think is just a bit more fun and, perhaps because of its inside joke-filled attitude, more of a favorite for us. Anyway, none of this matters. "Regular" people...you know, those people called "consumers"...don't have a clue what Cannes is nor would they if they knew what it was. It's all just one big self-congratulatory slap on the back. A waste of time. However, we can't wait until the Adrants T&E budget can afford to send us.
