This week the cut-price time machine that is Classic Ads From SImpler Times lands us back in 2010 from where we launch into a review that encompasses feminist theory in Australian politics, a Nazi sympathiser who wrote the Big Mac of classical music and the removal of Jack Duckworth from Coronation Street as part of David Cameron’s culture wars on the north.

Join us as fourth-rate advertising industry suit Steve Cooke and first-rate advertising creative director and TV commercial director Tony Williams (no – not that one, the other one) review The Man Your Man Could Be, a TV ad for Old Spice.

Women want him. Men want to smell like him. He's the man your man could smell like if he didn't use lady-scented body wash...it won at Cannes but did it win our hearts as it that launched one of the most spectacularly successful rebrands in recent advertising history?
