Iron Man, not Robert Downey Jr, already used by LG for phone ads
The first ad, which came out early in 2008 when the first Iron Man movie was released, was for the original "iPhone Killer," the LG Voyager. Many of you might not remember the phone, which was Verizon's answer to the Apple iPhone. It was the first feature phone to offer an HTML browser. The handset included a physical QWERTY keyboard inside a clamshell form factor, and featured two 2.81 inch screens. For a few extra bucks a month, the LG Voyager let you access live television from VCAST mobile television.
The second ad, released to promote Iron Man 2 in 2010, was for the Android flavored LG Ally. Actually, it is a pretty funny ad and highlighted many of the things that the phone could do in a very unique way.
Mobile phones have come a long way since both of these handsets were released. But have the ads kept up? Check out the LG Voyager and LG Ally ads and compare them to what we see on television for current advertisements and then drop us a line in the box below.

I had the Voyager. Best keyboard at the time without a doubt. Almost upgraded to the LG Ally but glad I didn't.
And HTC invested $1 billion on this. HTC needs to go home because they're drunk.

1 difference, HTC aired a brand promotion advt, and This is a product promotion advt. HTC is introducing Robert Downey Jr, not Iron man. I think HTC advt is pretty good for those who doesnt know what is htc ? Happy Telephone Company. Spreading that word.

Nice commercial but i didnt really like the iron man movies very much. Iron man 3 had huge plot holes, though the comedy was nice enough. The ironman in avengers was done right imho
