Oreo Daily twist vs Google daily doodle - only one wins a Cannes Lion

So, still hungover from Cannes, Oreo and DraftFCB are basking in the shine of their glorious Lion win for Oreo Daily Twist, when lady-who-has-real-job™ asks... "How is the Oreo thing any different from the Google doodle?" OH PLEASE! Back off, lady, this area is for professionals in advertising only. Just because you educate the next generation of consumers doesn't mean you have any idea about what makes an ad campaign. Have a seat in that tiny uncomfortable desk over there while I explain.

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.

SXSW will have free bikes that tweet where they are.....

Razorfish have made tweeting bikes for SXSW. The sleek bikes have their own GPS devices that will transmit location data of their whereabouts to Razorfish's social media team. The 20 bikes have individual Twitter ID's, WyattTheBike a Texan bike y'all, VivianTheBike, KenTheBike and PennyTheBike for example, and will tweet in its own personality. They can tweet where they are, about the weather, where they've seen what foodtrucks and random localized talk. If they're stolen they will tweet "RIP" and sign off.
