I have no idea what this video actually is. If it's some marketing video put together by BlackBerry long ago. Maybe if it's some parody video put together at some point. I just really don't know. What I do know however is that it is insanely awesome and it's certainly fitting for a little bit of throwback Thursday love, even if it comes a bit late. Just watch, you'll understand.

Throw back Thursday love

Almost looks like something "This hour had 22minutes" would do

I don't see the humor, I do that now! Just kidding. But I would freak out if my Bold 9900 took a dive. Awesome commercial. They should re-release it today :)

Lol that was so awesome. God blackberry please get your ass moving and do not rest till BlackBerry is back on top. I have used every android and iPhone on the market. Really almost every one that has been released and BlackBerry 10 is the best OS hands down. Just for god sake load some kick ass Hd wallpapers on the new blackberries. That is my only complaint with the z30 is the ugly orange wallpaper! Otherwise it's amazing. The audio sounds better then any Samsung or iPhone.

camera531

Seriously!? The wallpaper is the easiest problem to remedy. It's not even a valid complaint. If that was the only problem with BlackBerry, the iPhone would be a (distant) second.

Here check this BBM channel it has awesome wallpapers.

I have a non functional one at home, just gives an error, but looks great in my BlackBerry collection
Video was hilarious but still kinda weird :P

Easiest way to remedy that is to reload the device software if it's even possible (if you have the USB/connection cable) and have a virtual machine setup with windows, the correct blackberry desktop software (at the time, version 4 or 5 I believe), you can reload and revive it. :) oh and don't forget the device software too.

This should have been the super bowl commercial! That would have been Awesome!

I agree with this 200%

FrankDLR1972

Why is it BlackBerry always come out with the answer, like a year or two behind when it should?

The_Adventist

I loved that!

Thanks for sharing. Now Kevin just has to share his CB apk that he had on his Note 3. I gotta have that.

I am sure that's how I'd feel if anything happened to my Z10!

Best BlackBerry marketing I have seen in years

ARWestenberger

That's what people need again, that feeling of dread when your BlackBerry is gone. Not to that extreme, but I'm sure a lot of people were that bad when it came to their BlackBerrys.

Totally me. Every second of that video.

I used my Z10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

Awesome!!!

Hahah that's awesome. We need a funny ad like this for BlackBerry 10.

Must be done in Toronto I see Bay street there.

It was most likely filmed in Toronto. The actor is Bruce Hunter, trained at Second City, founded The Illustrated Men (sketch troupe) with Adrian Truss and David Huband.

Appropriate for its time, when the brand was exclusive and desired. It's difficult to think of what style of advertising would be most effective now, when the brand is seriously down. And to which target market? They're hurting everywhere. Not sure Boulben has a lot of options and/or budget...

Posted via CB10

JasonGallagher

Wish I didn't have to be. Good find on the nostalgia though!

Posted via CB10

peter0328

Boulben has no budget, he doesn't work for BlackBerry anymore!

Posted via CB10

Jubei Raziel

Like Peter said Jason... Frank Boulben doesn't even work for BlackBerry anymore.

JasonGallagher

My bad! I guess his efforts are as visible now as they were when he was with BlackBerry so I forgot he was gone.

Nothing makes consumers warm up to huge corporations with humor. They had such an opening with the launch of BB10 and blew it. Shame Frank had no idea how to market BB10.

Wow Bla1ze! Where in the world did you find this gem? That was awesome. It is much the same today for many people and their mobile devices. Cant put them down. :D

Modernize it and you might have something there. I hate it when I can't find my phone.

That was a really bad. really really bad!

Posted via the best phone ever. The white Z10.

thatplaybookguy

weird, I have dreams of people trying to steal my z10, all the time.

Christine85

That right there is the best BlackBerry marketing video I've seen in a long time. Laughed the whole time! Recreate this for bb10 and distribute worldwide. Shows everyone that blackberry is still alive and kicking!

Fantastic,I loved the ending.

Paullybob

Fantastic marketing video, when you could have fun with an ad on television. Those days are long gone, now we rely on multi-millionaires shclocking our products lifelessly in glitz and glam high tech garbage videos. We NEED more life moments in ads today, not just for Blackberry but for everybody....we do indeed live in different times now!

bongar

Awesome video. Really strikes home. Funny.

MrJohnyBoy

That was hilarious! BlackBerry should come out with some new ones like that....
Hey or do a remake of that one..lol

Posted via CB10

Titanius

That was hella funny!

Wazimas

Seriously, this the type of PR BlackBerry should have done for the BB10. Just update with today standard but keep the theme the same. Show your can't live without your BlackBerry or BBM or the HUD connected to your social networks.
Like the video, could work now with some work.

denisa251

That was the best commercial I've ever seen and the truest!

Blackberry should host a competition for short films/vignettes made with Blackberry devices then have a red carpet "Blackberry Awards Ceremony" during the Toronto Film Festival.

There are a lot of creative people out there, who knows what a viral video or two could do for their image and bottom line.
