Characters in television commercials can take on a life on their own: ASB's Ira Goldstein, the old men from the Mainland Cheese ads and even the Toyota "Bugger" dog are virtually New Zealand icons.

Now we have Beau Tyler from the Tip Top Memphis Meltdown ads, The self-help industry will never be the same again!

Many will already be familiar with Beau from the Memphis Meltdown television commercial - a brilliant marketing teaser campaign played on primetime national TV since possibly even before the live show was thought of.
As the audience convenes in the auditorium we are greeted with a series of inspirational quotes from the literary hall of fame - Churchill, Nietsche, Wilde, etc, on the topic of the symbiotic relationship of success and failure,
culminating in an impressive testimonial from President Bush of how Beau's unique programme helped him through the darkest hours of his second term.

After the appropriate hyper-introduction the self-styled self help evangelist, cheesily attired by those male fashion dinosaurs Hallensteins, emerges to the voluminous applause of the crowd (as instructed via the big screen).
Without giving away the entire system and risking an injunction, suffice to say the basis of Tyler's self-help technology is that accepting defeat is the key to fulfillment, not focusing on success and thereby setting yourself up for failure.

There's more to it than that, in terms of arranging one's social environment and so-on, but you'll have to see the show or else read Tyler's alleged no. 1 bestseller 'Feel the Fear and Fail Anyway!'
Expat American Beau and his institutional power-style ('Great to meet you, welcome to the rest of your life!) are recognisable to anyone who's seen a Tony Robbins ad, and the bones of his self-help shtick is so on the money that one wonders whether writer/Tyler Peter Feeney has done a number of these courses for material. Or is the stereotype just that two dimensional that you only need to watch the infomercial to figure out the whole shtick?
Once we've had an eyebrow-raising taste of one of his key patented and trademarked exercises, we settle into a heartfelt account of Beau's life story,. At first with only minor sinister undercurrents. He knew he'd hit rock bottom
when he got a job as an impersonator of himself, hoping no-one would realise it's actually him ... That kind of thing. From there, as Tyler describes the events leading up to his massive personal turnaround, the scenario develops
in a direction that really brings home the inherent pitfalls and traps of the selfimprovement industry.
There are genuine insights to be gleaned from this parody, and for some people it could arguably be more beneficial than any serious brand of personal development. It's inevitable that a percentage of the audience,
myself included, will have attended something resembling what is being inflicted upon us here, so the relative merits between the genuine article and the implications of this outstanding satire can be explored. In any case, if
laughter is indeed the best medicine, then A Night With Beau Tyler is efficacious therapy indeed.
