Tom Eriksen an employee at Farfar claims to have lost his Lion at the MSN Beach Party after the awards show. He's offering $1000 to the person who can recover his lost lion - or something resembling one.
I was drunk and I regret it.
Imagine yourself waking up the morning after you buried your employer’s Cannes Lion on some beach in Cannes. Sounds like a lot of fun until you realize you don’t remember where it was.
Anyhow, that’s me, stretched out in bed with hangover-angst pumping through my veins. (groan) To make things worse, I’ve only been with the company for three months. A company that was generous enough to send me on a 3-day vacation to claim the prize and bring it home. Now it’s buried somewhere on the beach of the Palm Beach Casino in Cannes.
Please help me get it back. The cost of replacing the lion is what a fast food employee earns in two months. Okay, I earn more but still, it’s a lot of money. I tell you what: If you help me find the lion I’ll give you $1000. No questions asked. Just return something resembling a golden Cyber Lion and I’ll happily hand you a thick wad of cash.
Tom claims this is not a prank or a game. One has to wonder if he is telling the truth or if he is full of the excrement of el toro. (via HiddenPersuader)
