Cannes Lions 2009 - Which is not unduly obvious, as I am about to explain
Cannes Lions 2009
Back from the holidays! On the last day before my trip back, I took my 12-year-old nephew out to a film. Last year we saw Bolt, his first 3D movie. This year the selection was pretty limited, so we went to the Bloor Cinema to watch the 2009 Cannes Lions, a selection of award-winning ads from 2009. All in all, we saw something like two hours of commercials. Unlike the last time I went to see the Cannes Lions with oshawa, I was very happy that they weren't all about soccer this time. (Must have been a World Cup year.)

Definitely watch in high definition if the option's available.

I laughed SO hard at the Milk one.

And yeah, we both are perfect for the Skwinkles ad, aren't we?

...Diamond Shreddies. Only in Canada.

And god, I hate Axe. So. Much. This only fuels it.

They can move incredibly fast, so whatever you do, DON'T BLINK!

Aha, someone's added music to it! Btw, I tried to phone you while I was in town over the holidays, but the line was always busy whenever I tried, so I assumed there was either a problem with your phone, or you were on dial-up a lot. :-(

I had to revert to dial-up because I was having computer troubles. I'll PM my cell number. I'd've loved to hear from you! C'est la vie, I guess.
