Those who couldn’t clear their diary for Cannes made sure they could cabcharge their way over to Ying’s Restaurant in Crows Nest to pay homage to the world’s greatest advertising festival and their lion-winning brethren. The FBI Recruitment ‘No Cannes Do’ celebrated its fourth year courtesy of sponsors UFO Films, Chivas & Cutting Edge Post. The 100 or so people who turned out were welcomed by Cutting Edge’s CEO Ray Smith and enjoyed a banquet selected by renowned Sydney foodie (and legendary TVC director) Les Luxford. Lunch was followed by a variety of Chivas-based cocktails distributed by the beautiful Chivas girls. Kevin McNamara from Clemenger BBDO collected the 4.5 litre bottle of Chivas in the ‘Line of the Day’ competition and Jol Temple from Leo Burnett won the Lucky D’Or prize. The lunch went on into the evening and then onto the Argyle Bar. Following are some photos of the attendees as well as a video capturing the highlights of the day–

I'm sure there's some great minds there. But it looks like 90% of those featured got dressed during a blackout while doing some night shopping at the local st.vinnies.

Think of this as a constructive comment.
