Although I hate this ad, once and a while it adds ironic commentary to whatever aired right before it. It's especially funny when it follows another ad.

^^I've seen some talk about this guy here on the forum. Most people like him.
Here's another Blah Blah that bugs me. 
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

I kind of like it. It's a good commercial, and works for a phone. You really cannot sell a phone by an advert. It's something you have to experience in your hand, so there's really no way they could successfully do an ad to promote their phone, because it's all just words until you're actually looking at the screen and testing it out.

I like HTC, their phones are always sturdy, metal, well-formed and, dare I say, beautiful. My first phone was one I found tossed on the road in town, figured it was just some useless scuffed up broken thing, but picked it up and aside from a few minor scratches it was okay. I ripped out the SIM card and took it home. A few weeks later I realised it had a screen protector on, and underneath was almost mint. Great little thing. Next was an HTC Mytouch. Nothing fancy, smaller screen, but held up great. I've dropped it so many times, but nary a scratch on it.

I was even interested in the new HTC phone, but the screen size killed it. I went with a Note 3, and love it. Between the pen, the big screen, the memory, a lot of the built in programming, it's an excellent little piece of machinery. But would a commercial sell me on it?

Nope, never.

It was holding one in my hand, playing with it, understanding it, seeing how it worked.

So I like this ad, because it does the only thing it can do. It lets you know the phone is out there.

No you can't really sell a phone by an advert but you can aggravate the f**k out of a potential customer by going "blah blah blah..blah blah blah" and make them boycott your products because of your advert....

was strange to see a product actually spent the time to develop and get airtime for a commercial that pretty much just goes "f**k, google it or something."

I guess I just like this because it's a change from iPhone's "We're the most revolutionary and beautiful and important and unique and individualizing thing in the world and you must own our products and appreciate it and love it more than your life or your children or anything else.

I seem to be the only one who connects the "blah, blah, blah" to whatever aired right before it.

It's Gary Oldman, so that's cool.
But the commercial is kinda dumb.
If you see it a few times it really grates the nerves.

I actually did make that connection, but only recently because I just saw it on TV.

About commercials causing potential customers to boycott the products, I saw Wendy's Baconator commercial years ago with the man with Wendy's pigtail wig, screaming dramatically ," Bacon!". It turned me off. To this day, I refuse to eat a Baconator because of the commercial.

I just saw the commercial without the "blah blah blah" maybe someone at htc realized just how f**king annoying and stupid that is.
