Primarily inspired by different colors, but also influences as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, Andy Warhol and The Prisoner, Downey was given complete creative control to do whatever he wanted, loosely using the themes and buzzwords of HTC’s self-described philosophy. He plays baseball with a purple chicken, scares a giant rabbit by popping a balloon, breaks the moon for a mer-man, screws a grenade into a light socket, and more.
I don’t know that it’ll make me want to buy a phone, but it does make me want to see him direct more. His dad was a very strange filmmaker to begin with.
Funnily enough, I won the HTC One that I have at a Captain America junket. Marvelous.
