HTC One M9 promo videos are here; one clip is narrated by Robert Downey Jr.

The second video is narrated by none other than Robert Downey Jr. You might recall that HTC reportedly paid the actor $12 million to appear in a ridiculous advertisement that fell flat on every level. All we can assume is that HTC was owed a few more ads for the $12 million they paid Downey and wanted to get their money's worth. This video showed different people all around the world using the HTC One M9 and ended with Downey Jr. saying that "we're all One."
While these videos were perfect for the occasion in which they were used, for HTC's sake let's hope that the actual television ads focus more on the features of the phone. Last year's ad for the HTC One (M8) featured actor Gary Oldman telling consumers "Blah, blah, blah." If HTC wants to take on the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, LG G4, the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus, it will need to produce memorable ads that actually sell the public on the phone.

Ok HTC here's an idea....Pay Downey to wear an HTC shirt everytime he promotes his Avengers movie scheduled in May...the paps will take his pic all the time, then you have a Free Ad everytime these gossip mags and websites post his picture.

ahmm...... i did not find any interesting or good ads in either of the vids hope HTC would learn to advertise their product by presenting something cool, something that will remind consumer why they have to pick Htc one m9 over the others i love my htc one m8 i think its still one of the best over all smartphone in 2014 but i have to admit their ads sucks

Hopefully the camera issues can be fixed, but my only problem with the M9 is the silver they used for this phone. I much preferred the smooth silver they had on the M7 and the M8 rather than this brushed look. The RDJ promo was cool though :)
