Here’s the full 2 minute HTC Change ad with Robert Downey Jr. (and it’s absolutely crazy) [VIDEO]

HTC made their deal with Robert Downey Jr. official yesterday when they released a quick 30 second spot with the actor. Hell, an entire press release came along with it, letting us know what “change” meant for HTC and the mobile world, and why this new marketing campaign would be awesome for them.

While the jury is still out on all that, the first of many advertisements featuring (and inspired by) Robert Downey Jr. has hit the internet. This full 2-minute affair features a bunch of whacky different scenes inspired by all of the crazy collection of words that can be built out of the collective letters of HTC’s name. It’s all over the place. It’s crazy. It makes no sense. And that’s why HTC has our attention. Go ahead and take a look for yourself in the video above.

    Dude’s expression at the 45 second mark was my exact response as well.

    Honestly Terrible Commercial!

    • simpleas

      lol, but look at what you and we’re all doing. but you’re right, this commercial is geared towards people like us. Regular people who sees this on tv won’t really think about the commercial once it ends. And unfortunately, that’s where htc needs to penetrate.

    I bet RD Jr. has held many cats…

  • Kadenl

    Good for HTC hopefully this gets them back to being top 2. Competition for Samsung is good

  • RitishOemraw

    Hey That’s Crazy

  • jackdubl

    I thought it was excellent. A step forward with regard to American branding. May help them in the future with buyers who have never owned HTC before.

  • DavidVarghese

    You know… While it seems weird/crazy, the name “HTC” sticks. I guess that’s the important part; that people know their name.

  • CerealFTW

    it makes no “sense”? maybe they’re trying to tell us the HTC two will have stock android… lol

  • CerealFTW

    Heroin (is) Terribly Cheap

  • JPB

    Um, so I should buy their phones because of this?

    • Chris Chavez

      It’s about building brand awareness. Next time you go to the store and see an HTC phone, you’ll remember this ad. I guarantee it.

      • JPB

        Mostly I’ll remember my HTC Incredible, which is still a pretty good phone in its own right. Then, I’ll remember how they’ve lost their way for a few years and tried to regain it with this atrocious commercial. Then I’ll buy a Nexus.

  • PhoenixPath

    Love it. Then again, I’m (just a scoche) unstable to begin with so this just jives with my normal state of mind.

    Holy Toledo, Charles!

      you might wanna take care of that on your own

  • 1drumshark

    I feel like there money would be better spent at paying celebrities to carry around their phones, or even wear a hat that says HTC or something. I’ve never seen a Beats by Dre commercial, but I’ve seen plenty of celebrities wearing them as fashion accessories, and they sell those like hotcakes with huge price markeups. But what do I know. Im only a consumer.

  • Chris H

    I don’t understand it, but I like it.

  • DDroid45

    Haha That’s Cool, “HTC”

  • JosephLagalla

    showed a bit of boom sound and zoe, but they should’ve turned the video into a blinkfeed or something.

  • TheTruthSquad

    How’s The Thunderbolt? Remember that piece of $hit? It is the one that put HTC out of the business.

  • contraus
