Someone, somewhere thought it was a good idea for HTC to make its own hip hop music video. Whoever approved the project might be regretting that decision right now, but never mind -- at least we get a hilariously cringeworthy tune to stick on repeat for the rest of the day. If you're curious, the man dissing the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5 in equal measure is Greg Carr (aka "Doc G") of the musical group P.M. Dawn. He's actually the cousin of Attrell Cordes, or Prince Be, who used to lead the hip hop act during their heyday in the '80s and '90s. Oh, and if you're really interested in how this all came together, HTC has even put up an interview with the rapper himself. Now, just head past the break, sit back and enjoy.
Y'all trying to bite us?
You know what I'm saying?
It took y'all six years to get what we got in two years!
You don't know who we be?
We're HTC and we're about to say it loud!
HTC we hold the crown!
Word to Peter Chou!
Tried to bite our frame, but you'll never steal or take away our name, baby,
look here, and listen.
You're smartphone scared,
Don't want to clash with a Titan,
They saw that M8 debut,
They became enlightened.
Where I'm from, you don't ever get respect for biting.
HTC One M8 is the best,
You are all invited.
Your phone was all glass,
Why you change your tune now?
Your chip is slower,
Plus you'll never touch our BoomSound.
More than a few clowns stole what we originated,
We own the universe, your Galaxy is overrated.
It took you copycats six times to get it right,
My One M8 is far too great, you'll never touch its light
Gorilla Glass 3, Duo Sensor, dual speakers,
HTC is MVP your smartphone's on the bleachers,
Internal battery strong,
But if my power's low,
I stay alive with Extreme Power Saving Mode,
Make like them nerdy bloggers
Put it in your pocket now,
HTC cannot be beat,
Help me say it now!
I say it loud,
You know that we hold the crown,
The greatest smartphone ever created baby,
Far too great for y'all competition,
So stop, look and listen,
I say it loud,
We hold the crown,
My word to Peter Chou.
