The superstar actor can now be seen in a series of delightfully weird new promo videos for HTC.
How do you get Robert Downey Jr. to help promote your latest smartphone? Well, apparently you just let him do whatever the hell he wants in a series of utterly bizarre short films.
To hype up the upcoming launch of the HTC One M9, HTC has released ten short promo videos featuring the famous star trapped in a room with a guy dressed up like a bunny and a mermaid -- no, I'm sorry -- a merman! But what does any of this have to do with smartphones? Well, the word HTC does show up in the background sometimes. This much I know. Anyway, if you're brave enough, prepare to enter Robert Downey Jr.'s "rainbow psyche" by watching the color themed videos below.
Between this and their recent attempts to start a rap battle between Apple and Samsung, I think HTC has now become the official smartphone brand for the clinically insane. Beat that, Galaxy S6!
