HTC and Gary Oldman team up to promote the HTC One (M8) - ask the internet, blah, blah, balh - HTC Source
There’s no denying that HTC’s marketing campaign featuring Robert Downey Jr was a bit odd. Rather than sticking with the same theme, HTC has hit the reboot button and pulled in Gary Oldman for its first two ads for the HTC One (M8). This time around, the message is simple: “At HTC, they don’t make phones for everyone – just those who demand more, who form their own opinions. People like you. So, go ahead, ask the internet. I’ll wait.”
Filming a commercial which asks consumers to “ask the internet” about a phone even before the device is unveiled is an extremely risky more. That being said, it shows HTC was extremely confident in the HTC One (M8) and expected raving reviews from major tech sites. So far, the plan seems to have worked. While the camera is a little disappointing, it does not detract much from the phone’s incredible design, build quality, refined software and impressive battery life. We’re still working on our review, but it’s fair to say that the HTC One (M8) is the best device ever made by HTC.
The two HTC One (M8) ads are already being aired in the US and we expect them to hit Europe and Asia any time now. Take a look at HTC’s new ads featuring Gary Oldman and let us know what you think.
