Marc Duran from Wing will be Vining his Cannes trip.

Want to see the Cannes Lions fest, but can't go? Well Marc Duran, copywriter at Wing, won the Circulo Creativo US Hispanic competition for the second year running, and the office decided to outfit him with a smartphone, a Vine-app and this tumblr called vinealoquevine. He'll be vining six seconds of Gutter-bar drunkeness and whatever else he may get up to and we can follow it from afar.

Key word: Vine It's using Vine. And Tumblr. How exciting. He better be at the Gutter bar a lot since Tumblr is sponsoring the former-yahoo-sponsored space this year.

Hungry? In Cannes? *after midnight*? Deutsch LA to the rescue with Cannes Has Pizza

Cannes has Pizza is this weeks must-have app as Deutsch LA is arming scooter-riding iphone-carrying pizza-saviors and sending them to Cannes. They'll be delivering 1800 slices of the best pizza you'll never remember throughout the week, Tuesday-Thursday nights, going from 12-2 am. Like any brilliant idea best suited for drunken souls, this one was conceived of at 5 in the morning in Cannes, as Jeff Sweat was trotting up and down the croisette desperately searching for food. Cannes may have that free-flowing pink Evian in abundance, but food after midnight is a lot harder to find.
