HTC EVO 3D gets rapped about

HTC EVO 3D gets rapped about
Say what you will about 3D on your smartphone, but even without the stereoscopic cameras and parallax barrier display, the HTC EVO 3D is one mightily impressive handset.

So much so, that Brandon Peterson made a video in which he raps about it, over Kid Cudi's "Cleveland is the Reason" instrumental. The guy seems mesmerized by Dan Hesse giving him the best data plans, so Sprint's CEO gets the "Hey, Dan, you da man" lyrics.

Speaking of text, at times the whole thing is hilariously serious, with a thorough overview of the HTC EVO 3D's specifications, listing chipset speeds, resolutions, user interfaces - the whole nine yards of tech reviews.

There are some personal favorites in the lyrics, but watch the HTC EVO 3D rap video below, and pick your own. At the end the lyricist takes a not-so-thinly veiled jab at Apple's iPhone, which can be expected from any self-respecting Android rap video.

Thanks, AndroidTroll!

I have to say it's clearly a funny video. It's basically a video review of the HTC Evo 3D but with an alright flow. Hey it works, & I love when they show the Apple iPhone 4 & what they write over it. It's hilarious. Also the way he started the video is exactly how many Verizon customers feel like. Where are the dual-core 4G LTE phones?!? Month #7 of 2011 is right about to start. Half of the year is gone & STILL no dual-core 4G LTE phone?!? My friend is going crazy about this! He wants his Droid Bionic already. Please release it Verizon so my friend can have is sanity back. For that matter me too. I always have to hear it. Plus he keeps playing with my HTC Evo 3D! lol

Yeah right....Your Galaxy S2 whenever it launches in the states will be a watered down verison from the model everyone has abroad...DEFINATELY NOT BETTER THAN MY EVO 3D ESPICALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THAT FREADFUL WORD IN GALAXY LAND......UPDATES

Wouldn't even use it as my toilet paper. P.S. PA, go on ahead and remove this comment as well since you're apparently bitter about my political comments.

Hey Miz, I am curious about your profile pic. I have always made fun of it but maybe I was jumping to conclusions. Could you please enlighten me???

Actually, I googled it and learned that it's the Miz from the Real World who now wrestles for the WWE (which I did not know). He actually seems alright...sort of awesome.

you people are such close minded. he speaks of all the tech it has built into it and plus has fun with it. What up with all you guys that diss on this. I think its great and it helps to bring out the best in the phone. and it gets peoples attention or else you would not diss this video so much. I am a person who believes in do not judge others tell you take a dam good look at your self. do not judge if you do not understand what your talking about. I have a galaxy and a htc . And i have to say it blows away my new samsung galaxy with speed looks and everything else you can add to it. So do not diss unless you know what the hell your talking about. But good try muscle head.

i can't believe this guy thinks he can take a KiD CuDi instrumental and dump all over it with some flow that just makes me wanna puke. oh and the GSII is SOOO much better than that thing, seriously, i've even seen an EVO 3D now, played with the camera, watched The Green Hornet in 3D for a few minutes and the angling is much more tedious than it is on the 3DS, it's pretty ridic. i'm even starting to consistently like Samsung products over HTC products.


Posts: 3131; Member since: Jan 12, 2010

Yea IMO, the GS2 is better than the EVO 3D and Sensation and will be better than anything that Motorola and LG can put out. It's the most powerful phone today. I really hope in the near future we get the SG2 here in the US. I'm not saying the EVO 3D and other phones are bad, I'm just saying that the SG2 is more powerful and smoother.

Stupid video wow & i'm not even that old & peeps can think I am a prude which im not at all. But this doesn't say much abt our society because of the classic stereotypes it puts why does the word "***" still have to be used??? to describe things & all the other sexual stuff and cussing etc. I am way open to humor. But this is lame. I guess the real classic days of comedy are mostly gone...Done. P.S Phone Arena do you really like this video??? Guess somebody does.. Makes me not like your site so much anymore actually. No class! but again that's the world today I guess.

Wow the G word in my comment got edited. Whats up with that Phone Arena?? Yet it's fine in this video. Again what does this say about you. Again STUPID. Im not personally offended. Just couldn't resist putting my two cents out there.

Well at least he is a good guy he already responded on youtube the following- I completely agree. I don't mean it to be offensive. I just wanted it to be funny and to rhyme with CTIA. I am a supporter of human rights. Thanks for your comment :). And I was expecting something negative. Good man. & he does have talent! I feel my previous comment was a little to harsh before lol. Oh well life goes on

Did I stutter? You better check yo self before I reach through the internet void and rip your arms off just to hear your girlishly, siberian husky-like scream tones. :D

I like how he said vidya. I'm going to start saying it too.

This dudes just havin fun. I'm sure he doesn't act like that in rl. I thought it was funny as s**t and I'm in my mid 30's and yes I think using profanity to describe things is hilarious. I seriously hope Dan Hessy personally contacts these guys to do an official sprint/evo3d commercial.When immature things stop making you laugh is when you should start worrying whats wrong with you.
