Newsflash! Cannes Gold Lions Not Gold!
Not that we didn't know this already but someone went to the effort to prove it anyway. Boondoggle took their five "gold" Lions to several goldsmiths to see just how gold they really are. The findings? According to one goldsmith, a Gold Lion is just "a bad piece of blunt casting." No goldsmith found any worth to the statues.
Anyway, Boondoggle is very happy and proud to have won five "yellow copper Lions."
