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.
