2016 Cannes Wins

The 2016 Cannes Lions Festival has come and gone. Juries deliberated, Lions were won and unfathomable amounts of rosé were drank. It was an incredible week to say the least, and now it’s time to celebrate a few big wins!

A special congratulations to the spots mixed at Sound Lounge:

House of Cards “FU 2016″, BBH New York

Hennessy “The Piccards”, Droga5

NFL “Super Bowl Babies Choir”, Grey New York

Return to Glory

Once a year, we get to bask in all of the Super Bowl’s glory and goodness. From Beyonce’s half-time dance moves to Peyton Manning’s final redemption (ahem: Seahawks two years ago), this year served it up like no other. And the commercials were no exception. PuppyMonkeyBaby had our sides splitting and Jeep had us wondering how a car commercial could be so moving.
