Video: HTC releases first ad in $1 billion Robert Downey Jr. blitz

HTC Robert Downey Jr Ad

Can Iron Man save HTC? We’re about to find out. Robert Downey Jr. is the star of HTC’s new $1 billion marketing campaign as the company looks to make HTC a household name just like Apple or Samsung. The company recently teased its first commercial starring Downey Jr., and now the full two-minute spot has been released. The bizarre ad lists a number of random phrases the letters “HTC” might stand for, building on the theme uttered early on by one of the commercial’s costars: “HTC: It’s anything you want it to be.” From a branding perspective, it’s actually a nice play from HTC and its ad firm that could go a long way to beat those three important letters — HTC — into viewers’ brains. The full ad can be viewed below.
