HTC markets the One with a new Bachelorette parody ad
HTC had two great phones last year with the HTC One X and the One S, and this year it has outdone itself with the unibody aluminum beauty that is the HTC One, but as it makes gorgeous designs, the company continues lacking sorely in marketing. And this last push does not seem to help.

HTC has produced a downright cheerless The Bachelor parody. Good job for getting Internet meme star James Van Der Beek, but with a terrible script things just aren’t funny.

So what is this new ad all about? Well, the HTC One appears to be fighting (and spoiler - winning) a bachelorette’s attention. It is “the One one.” The true love. Would she prefer it over a real person and a bunch of other phones (an iPhone spoof is also in the mix). Take a look at the unfunny parody below.

It made me chuckle ...but kinda cheesy. Phones been pre-ordered so they don't have to fight for my business.

And you said that you were not an HTC fanboy. This proves it, only a fanboy can think that this commercial wasn't horrible.haha

just because i didn't think it was horrible that doesn't make me a fanboy. it was cheesy as hell and the parts where the One was actually being used were pretty cringingly bad but it was still pretty silly and the girl man! the girl! :P
