It’s been a minute since we last saw Iron Man’s Robert Downey Jr. fulfill his $12 million dollar contractual obligation in an HTC ad. Some were confused to find HTC going with a different Hollywood star in their latest HTC One M8 ad spots, in which Gary Oldman waxes poetic about HTC’s latest flagship.
Well, it looks as if HTC was able to track down the Marvel star, apparently backstage on his latest movie set. The rather strange commercial merely has RDJ telling you to buy the HTC One M8… and that’s about it. He does mention all the awards the original HTC One received last year, even momentarily speaking in an old English accent.
In our minds eye, we can see someone holding up a few cue cards behind the camera, telling RDJ to read them off and finish with something funny. The result? Well, we’ll let you decide for yourself. Video below.
