sloppy_cannes.jpg

Our friends over at Trust Collective have put together Sloppy Cannes, a site on which anything tagged with #sloppycannes will appear. Here's your chance to be famous! Just by being drunk or stupid and posting about it. Which, pretty much, everyone does anyway when they're in Cannes.

Oh but Trust Collective doesn't just want to embarrass you. They want to reward you for your sloppiness. The winner of the most embarrassing/sloppiest Cannes moment will, yes, win an iPad Mini!

This is my annual excuse to post this picture.
