Live from Cannes: Day 3 (Croisette of Commerce)

Studios spend tons of money to pollute the skyline and color the croisette with upcoming outdoor ads to spruce upcoming releases, while sellers might use it as a tool to add a little more oomph to their sales slate. Jerry Seinfeld uses it to make a public appearance much like a certain Borat did during the exact time last year. This high end graffiti for the flocks of folk that come here do the same thing I do – allow the assault to occur and publish the report. Scrolling down you’ll find a slew of high end publicity which is then converted into free publicity by people like me looking to add photo content to the site.
