Our coverage of the Cannes International Festival of Creativity is brought to you by Centro, a provider of media services and software that aims to improve campaign performance and digital media teams’ productivity.
Let’s face it: Going to the Cannes Lions is a recipe for disaster. There are just too many ways to become far too intoxicated by drink and “inspiration.” You have to think how this is going to come off to others, particularly because you’re going to tweet, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr and Foursquare the whole thing.
We’ve come up with some danger signs that you’re at risk for passing from hard-working ad guy unwinding a bit in the Riviera and into the category of douche.

Don’t wear white sunglasses.
Don’t wear The Creative Guy Fedora.
Don’t complain how Cannes used to be more fun when the clients weren’t there.
Don’t pass out on the sidewalk.
Don’t don the speedo just because you’re in France.
Don’t pose for photos with the mother and daughter prostitute team.
Don’t close down the Gutter Bar at 6 a.m. (Leave at 5:30 a.m.!)

Don’t carry around your Cannes Lions the night after you win — gotta act like you’ve been there before.
Don’t check in on Foursquare on a yacht.
Don’t lose your phone, and then ask people to tweet you because you lost your phone.
Don’t wear your name badge everywhere you go.
Don’t be the married lecherous dude — it isn’t a good look.
Don’t take it all too seriously.
