Pride in Advertising
We may watch Mad Men obsessively, but we haven’t seen a real commercial in years, thanks to the magic of our PVR.
Now we’re buying a ticket to go see hours of ads. Starting November 19 the Cinema du Parc will be presenting the 2010 Cannes Lions, awarding the best ads of the world. This multicultural romp through consumer culture will leave you laughing and crying, but most of all, wondering why ad men aren’t always this creative.
And why more of them don’t look like Jon Hamm.
Until November 25, tickets from $8 at Cinema du Parc, 3575, Park Ave., Montreal, 514-218-1900 and online.
