It's not unusual for major brands to hire high profile personas to help market their products, even when it comes to smartphones. HTC had its moment with Iron Man, a.k.a. Robert Downey Jr. Lenovo, of course, has Asthton Kutcher. Samsung has had heaven knows how many stars and artists sing its smartphone's praises, one way or another. LG also once had Joseph Gordon-Levitt under its fingers. Its latest ad campaign, however, is somewhat mildly entertaining because if its strangeness. LG has confirmed after the fact that it has indeed acquired the help of Mr. Jason Statham to promote its equally odd LG G5 flagship smartphone.
