Robert Downey Jr’s OnePlus 8 promo is ridiculous in all the right ways [Video]

The OnePlus 8 series went official this week and with it, a new ad from the company’s brand ambassador. Here’s a really fun ad for the OnePlus 8 series starring Robert Downey Jr.

In a two-minute video produced for international markets, OnePlus shows off the new features of the OnePlus 8 Pro including wireless charging, IP68 water resistance, 5G, and the 120Hz refresh rate too.

These OnePlus 8 features are all shown as Robert Downey Jr. goes about his day before attending a party. We see him in a panicked, rushed “drive,” getting a new suit to match OnePlus’ new “Glacial Green” color, and finally attending the pool party all while wearing his fancy new white suit.

The ad is completely ridiculous, but it’s really fun to watch and, likely, was a ton of fun to produce too. Notably, this set is also where a previous leak of the device occurred.

Robert Downey Jr. has been OnePlus’ brand ambassador for the past year or so with a partnership that started with the OnePlus 7 Pro. Previously, RDJ was a brand ambassador for HTC.
