    This looks official, but it's a 3rd party company that produced it. Cool commercial, regardless.

    Edit 2: As promised, here is the full 1080p version. Enjoy!

    Edit 1: The vid appears to be private now. I have the 1080p version at home that I'll upload after work. :\

    That's a perfect HTC commercial if I've ever seen one... If it is truly from a third party creator, and not affiliated that is some DAMN good work.

    yeah, that is for sure, commissioned work. That is high quality work. No way a company like that would do that just for fun.

    Well, if it's not meant to be up there and gets taken down, I have it on my phone now.

    Just had a thought:

    What if "demo reel" means audition for an advertising job? I mean that IS the correct terminology, I believe... And there are other ads (or "ads") on his page.

    This looks like its intended for the Thunderbolt site when it goes active. Another sign of impending launch?

    It's a really good commercial but seems a bit to long for my liking. Probably because there's no freaking release date shown anywhere, LOL!

    lol... it's gotta be training material or an interactive guide to the device, based on the last screen and comments.

    The date on the phone says tues nov 16th! the next time nov 16th hits on a tuesday is 2021! you know what that means!

    sorry, i felt the need after seeing the date on the phone

    but on a more serious note, there are trademark stuff for htc so it does look legit. that and the "chapters" at the end point towards an interactive site. finally some progress from the two companies that matter

    EXACTLY what i was thinking. Since there is TM stuff, it has to be legit or there would be pending legal issues. AND, the chapters at the end is definitely for an interactive site, probably from HTC not VZW. VZW is using more of the Thunderstorm kind of ads where HTC is using the notebook kind of ads. Does that make sense?

    It does make sense. That and the text styles and all that is what made me think HTC, and not Verizon.

    They didn't say the word "YOUYOUYOUYOUYOU" a million times though. Only about 5 or 6 I think. Clearly a fake, after realizing that.

    Note that one of the tags on the video is "Mocha". The codename for the ThunderBolt was Mecha. Perhaps they meant Mecha but made a typo when posting it.

    Dunno if you are joking, but I think that's because the youngsters(me included) these days are enjoying coffee, and that is what 99% of this commercial involved. But, you could be right. Just an observation

    There were two comments. I tried to post one as well but kept getting a message saying "Error. Try again.". I eventually refreshed the page and noticed that comments had been disabled. So that means the owner was watching the page. At least they didn't take the video down!

    Oh, I didn't get to see the second one. Mine was just asking if it was an actual HTC/Verizon commercial, or just a project of some sort for himself. To which I got no response unsurprisingly.

    I asked the same thing on his channel page, so we'll see. So sick of that little phrase... Holy crap.

    My comment questioning it was deleted on his page as well. I suppose I could put it up on YouTube, if anyone asks about it tomorrow. Otherwise I think someone else said they had it in better quality.
