Cannes 2013 at the WAG

Authored by: Nicole Fletcher on December 8, 2013

Channel 4 Paralympics Commercial Still

If you've never been to Cannes you're definitely missing out. Two years ago I dragged my partner to go see it. After much complaining and procrastinating we saw Cannes and he absolutely loved it! He even started asking me when we could go see the next year's months before they opened. So now Cannes is part of our yearly tradition.

On Friday, after a delicious dinner out, we went to see Cannes with two of our friends who had never seen it before. All four of us greatly enjoyed Cannes 2013 and there were many times that the whole audience erupted in laughter.
I don't want to give too much away for those who like me, may not have TV and have not seen most of these commercials, but some of my favourites were from Direct TV (particularly the one with the inflatable tube arm flailing man). I also keep getting the Dumb Ways to Die song stuck in my head. There were also some touching and inspiring commercials, like the one for the British Paralympics teams.
