That is the worst ad I think I have ever seen. Well besides the nationwide one.

haha love how you censored "fuckin" but didn't censor "shit"
Shit isn't nearly as censored as f***. Lol
You are knobhead
I was entertained. This was probably better than most mainstream rap videos and it was a parody....
Buhaaaaaaa... htc the worst after sell service ever...
That wasn't bad. Kinda catchy.
View it again when you're sober.
Haha I loved it. Cheezy and corny.
Two of my favorite things. I totally agree.
I loved it too!

MMMM, Cheesy popcorn. Who doesn't love that!!
That was great Haha
I'm a huge HTC fan and I think it is ridiculous.
Someone needs to kill that with fire
Perhaps with a gigantic burning asteroid that will take the ad, the people who made it and the rest of humanity with it! It's about time we make room for a more worthy species to arise and have their moment in the sun.
I'm convinced that everyone here hates any type of advertisement.
"What is T-Mobile doing?! Fix your network!"
"Samsung make better phones! Stop making commercials!"
"First HTC had the guy from Iron Man now this? The hell! Sucks!"
It's never enough.
You're right, and it's kinda sad. I liked the ad. I can understand why some people wouldn't like it (people that don't particularly like rap music and its image). But, even if you don't like HTC as a company, you have to admit, they had fun making this ad, and it's definitely funny. Some people just need to lighten up. But, alas, you will always have whiners.
MERC, it's not really an ad. Ads are much shorter and done professionally. Just some guys who are fans throwing it down. This stuff doesn't appeal to me yet there are others, a segment of the population, who will will get a kick out of it. Not of the Galifinacus "Between Two Ferns" caliber though. Obviously, it's a viral thing.
Um…… .very low budget. Looks more like a fan made video. But I do like the "Hold the Crown" acronym. They should use that.
I loved this! It shows that HTC isn't afraid of going the untraditional route. It was fun and creative and highlighted their features. For people saying it's stupid: It's supposed to be stupid, hence the eye crossing and face making, but it gets its point across very well!
As a Marketing designer I think this commercial is great. Probably cost them nothing to make this catchy ad.
Clearly they weren't trying to make a top of the line commercial. If anyone thinks HTC poured there heart and soul into that ad then slap yourself with a palm full of sulfuric acid, then rub salt into your wounds. They were making a statement and that was it. HTC dissed Apple and Samsung the right way. They were stating the obvious and not hating like it's competitors.
The acronym was great! They developed a cheap ad that requires attention.
You are right, because do long as articles are being written about it, more viewers will see the video. It creates controversy somewhat. Btw that acid slap would hurt so bad... Lol.
I think it's okay.
Amazing Verizon Galaxy Note 4
Simple, cheesey, corny and funny. Not bad
Lol thats nice. Not giving a hut. Wish oems would do this kind of thing more often, relax.
Guess I'm not in the demographic they're going for, because it did nothing for me. It just seemed like some viewer video you'd see on Tosh.O that would then have jokes made about it. "and for that, we thank you."
Laughed at its idiocy.
Horrible commercial and ad but that was what was great about it, the terribleness and corniness.
Loved it!!! Super cheesy but keeps ur attention til the end. I hope HTC uses the Hold The Crown!

It's more "Hold The Clown"
Thanks HTC my eyes are bleeding
Hey if you can't beat/outsell them... HTC is still around?
HTC is still around.
And they Hold the Crown...
Didn't you watch the video man?
What crown? You mean money losing crown of quarter after quarter, yep they can keep that crown all to themselves.
So many tight sphincters out here. It's a low budget harmless video dude. I love their phones. You don't. But whoever you love they are looking up at Apple. Apple had 97% of the profits of the smartphone industry last qtr. They "hold the crown" but I wouldn't be caught dead at this point with one of their phones for a number of reasons. Stop taking things so seriously and relax. I cannot believe how much play this video is getting. It is on the front page off every tech site. Even Apple Insider. From that standpoint, it was a success from a ROI perspective.
Of course they are still around. You click on articles about them, watch this video, and mention HTC when you comment. You have an obsession with HTC, else you wouldn't be here. Yes HTC is losing on a regular basis, but it's not all doom and gloom.. They still have you as a loyal fan who's concerned about whether or not they're still around.
Considering that for the last two years they've be hearing they'd be squeezed out of business by Apple and Samsung, now would be the time for a little boasting. 'sides it's so corny it's almost catching.
Boasting about what? What do they have to boast about. They cut everything just so they would not go under, I don't see what's to boast about that. If anything it shows they loser mentality. It's always the ones who don't have that makes the most noise. They need to keep their mouth shut, they head down and go about their business. Considering Apple is doing it's part of taking just about all the profits in mobile (86% and increasing). I think Apple have been wearing the crown they care about for more than half a decade now.
I made it into the 1st 15 seconds and then turned it off in disgust ... Using ghetto rap (imo) to sell a classy product just doesn't make sense. It's not the type of label I would associate with.
That's what you call ghetto rap? It was very corny harmless rap...almost reminiscent of the Beasty Boys or Run DMC. Point of the commercial was to keep HTC on your mind whether you are bashing or congratulating them. Umm....I'm leaning heavily towards mission accomplished.
Posted from my future HTC One M9 Plus (name is assumed).
Obviously all rap is ghetto rap to some folks.
What the heck did I just watched?
IT'S CALLED SATIRE!
"We're the Peter Chou!" Master trolls! LMAO!
Why won't HTC just make a top of the line commercial like Apple, Samsung, or Motorola? Every time I see an HTC commercial, it's like some kind of a joke trying to be funny in a humorless, Asian, nerdy sort of a way! It's just not funny or catchy IMO! Throw it out with the garbage!
HTC Desire 820 Commercial: http://youtu.be/KDMC1U0ke6E you're welcome.
I like this direction but not the guy they chose to perform it that much.
Sony Xperia Z2
Hmm not bad :)
