What happens in Cannes... goes viral? Cannes Lions couple caught in the act on Palais red carpet
They say Cannes Lions is a great place to forge client-agency relationships, but it would appear they're not the only relations that have been occurring on the festival's red carpet this week.
With the sun shining and the rosé flowing, it's perhaps inevitable that the cream of the world's creatives will lose their inhibitions during the ad industry's annual sojourn on the French Riviera.
But rather than retreat to the comfort of their hotels, one amorous couple appear to have been caught getting down to business right outside Cannes' famous Palais des Festivals venue.
The frisky pair were spotted by Adweek's David Griner, who dutifully noted that they were having "blatant sex on the Cannes Lions red carpet" in the early hours of this morning.

The Drum would like to make it clear that our team in Cannes were not involved. However managing director of events Lynn Lester did take a certain someone home...

For the record, Lynn was only following the advice of our very own ad campaign on La Croisette...
