In addition to releasing First Look videos for the HTC One (M8,) HTC has also launched an appropriate TV ad campaign, with two new clips having already been released. This time around it’s not Iron Man that comes to HTC’s rescue, but Commissioner Gordon – Gary Oldman stars in both clips, and it’s not clear whether Robert Downey Jr. will still promote HTC in any fashion in the future.

Titled “Blah Blah Blah – Go Ahead, Ask the Internet,” and “Go Ahead, Ask the Internet” the two commercials make a point about not saying anything about the actual specs or features of the phone. HTC is not even taking hits at the competition, at least not directly, as it’s inviting curious potential buyers to see what the Internet thinks about the phone.

“The all-new HTC One (M8) smartphone is designed for people who form their own opinions and demand more from a phone,” HTC’s message in these ads is. “So, go ahead, ask the Internet what they think of HTC One (M8) smartphone.”

Apparently, the company is quite confident in what the Internet has to say about the new HTC One, and is interested in using the power of the Internet to market the handset. The Internet has already spoken, with BGR playing its own part – here’s the extensive review, as well as the best thing and worst thing about the handset.

These first HTC One (M8) ads follow below.
