While HTC has just put a lot of dough in Robert Downey Jr.'s bank account to be the face of the Happy Telephone Company, Hot Tea Catapault, Hipster Troll Car Wash, that doesn't include the use of his most famous movie character; in fact, you might remember that the Iron Man franchise has been used twice by Korean manufacturer LG to promote two of its phones in the U.S...

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
