Movistar does the Harlem Shake with the BlackBerry Z10

By Adam Zeis on 9 Apr 2013 10:21 am EDT

More and more carriers are pumping out their own commercials for the BlackBerry Z10. We've seen Verizon drop a great one with BBM Video and now Spanish carrier Movistar has joined in on the fun. Moviestar operates mostly in Spain and Latin America and has recently made the Z10 available. 

Their commercial features the ever-popular Harlem Shake and shows off a couple watching some videos on YouTube while using the predictive text keyboard and share features of BlackBerry 10

While I'm not a fan of the Harlem Shake, it certainly is a wave that is worth riding for a BlackBerry commercial so it's fine by me.

Check out the ad above and let us know what you think in the comments!

Movistar does the Harlem Shake with the BlackBerry Z10


Nice! I wish there was much more in terms of ads for the BB10 devices. They're kind-of scant on TV here in Canada.

We must watch different channels. I see tons of Bell ads for the Z10.
So far only seen one single ad actually by BBRY, besides the Super Bowl.

This is how you CB10, son!

Shame Movistar Spain is still not offering the Z10. All the other Spanish providers are but still no sign from the largest operator in the country.

I was really scared about carrier branding, but luckily there's no sign of it on the actual units that are being sold right now.

Just so you're aware, the CB10 link for this video is set to youtube not vimeo. I had to go to the browser on my computer to see the right link. It's fine on the website.

+1 on the video not working... I would love to watch this, maybe it's a location issue. I'm trying to watch it from Brazil ;)

Nice to see they are pushing it BUT I really think they could have done a MUCH better job showing predictive text. +1 for the effort, though.

Very interesting but the video can't be played in my z10. Google api just don't works. Any way that can be fixed?

Chileans are fond to Internet trends. I guess that's why that commercial is like that.

Not complicated people

the advertisement is concerning some ...other country but not the Spain.
Please note that the "quota" is in dollars.

On top of that, few minutes ago I had a bad argument with the @@@ of the movistar spain (gran canaria) to renew my corporate mobile after 2 and half years and they are offering the 9320 (???) or 9790.

Now I looking to move 9 mobiles numbers and 4 usb sticks data plans with a monthly expense of about 1,200-1,500 euros to orange or vodafone. I have more corporate numbers (20+) but I 'll leave that with them just to use my bonus points for new equipment and the "hasta la vista, bay".

Are they morals?

Any idea who among vodafone-orange has better coverage and cheaper tariffs?
