Seems Like Everyone’s, Uh, Hanging Out At Cannes This Year

Check out Ad Age’s photo diary from Cannes.
But if you’re looking for diversity, you won’t likely find it in this crop of photos. Cannes just seems like a haven for middle-aged white people.
Seriously, though, are the so-called “leaders” of the ad industry too far removed from the real audiences of ads? Would any of these folks be caught dead in a Wal-Mart outside of Tulsa?

    Does Wal-Mart sell ManBras? I have to say, that is the most disturbing thing I have seen since “Playboy’s” spread on the Golden Girls back in 1989.
