CANNES, France—Note to Deutsch: Iggy Pop has some ideas for your Volkswagen advertising. But you're going to have to keep a very open mind.
Considering so many are hosted by ad agencies, it's a bit surprising that most Cannes Lions seminars aren't promoted with proper ads. But Grey is doing it up right with this promo for next Wednesday's Grey Music Seminar in the Palais, where Grey London chairman and chief creative officer Nils Leonard will interview rock legend Iggy Pop.
UPDATE: The Ethical Adman reports that this campaign used images of its subjects without permission. Original post below:
It's nice to see Iggy Pop taking a break from lending his music to cruise lines and starring in car-insurance ads to promote something a bit more relevant: his upcoming album, Ready to Die. In the clip below, Iggy mocks his sell-out stature by moaning about the perils of being shackled to a major label.
