This Thursday the branche organisations of both the Dutch ad agencies and advertisers, VEA and BVA, organise the 24 Hours of Advertising. Through a banner we learned that Bill Clinton will be speaking there about ‘How creativity can change the world.’ Interesting – though we knew that already, of course. Part of the 24 Hours of Advertising is the Cannes Reel that will be screened in the evening – a good way to start looking forward to Cannes 2013. We considered going, but judged the entrance fee of €100 for just the Reel (without an after party) a little too much. Fortunately there are other ways to get excited about Cannes. Kannes, for example, a character conceived by the founders of; Roderick Frencken and Geert Ploeger. They bought Kannes, a toy dog that can dance and flip his ears, from a street hawker in Cannes this year and took him to every pool party. They launched a Facebook page and – as this is part of their business – created a casefilm around him. The perfect film to get in the mood for Cannes 2013.
