The Cliche Battle

As as writer you are taught to write beyond cliches, to illustrate common story themes in a new way.  The ad agency for Old Spice took another approach:  create a storyline so fraught with cliches, that we have to laugh (a la Talladga Nights, Airplane and Scary Movie).  The result: huge success and a memorable Madison Avenue character - The Old Spice Guy.
