    After looking at this: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...ercial-839827/ the "styles" are business (BlackBerry) VS play (HTC). Nothing bad about either; but you have to be focused on your direction.

    I thought that ad was horrendous, and a horrible waste of Downey Jr's talent...

    I think these threads in general are filled with armchair chief marketing officers who seem to think their opinions are 'facts'.

    The problem is Keys cannot understand what Boulben is saying to her.

    Or find someone more relevant than Alicia Keys. Not that I care about celebrity endorsements, but if I did I certainly wouldn't be swayed to use a product in which Alicia Keys is the prime endorsement.

    I think the point is that they are trying to improve their sales, awareness and brand recognition at this point, not that they are doing well right now. I thought the ad was horrible, by the way.

    I know, but if it isn't working for HTC, and you thought the ad was "horrible", I'm not sure that it is a good model.

    Got to agree with this. Robert Downey Jr. was great, but the ad made no sense. Reminds me of the brutal BB Super Bowl ad.

    While I found the commercial amusing, are you seriously telling BlackBerry to take tips from HTC? You do know HTC isn't exactly in the best of shape either right? HTC has been falling and rising since 2009. Sound familiar? lol

    True. Advertising is not HTC's strong point. The One is probably the best smartphone out there and the level of marketing done towards it is worst than BlackBerry

    I get what they were trying to do with using Alicia Key's, but honestly she was a really bad choice, not least because of how badly she has performed in hindset - more practically because she really isn't that relevant in the world. No brownie points for bagging a minor celebrity at great expense I'm afraid.

    I thought it was a terrible commercial. Would people actually be more likely to buy a phone after seeing that thing?

    I love the Blackberry ad and am confused by the HTC ad. It is kinda fun, but just way too stupid.
