Droid DNA “Hyper Intelligence” Commercial and its Transhumanist Message



This TV ad promoting Verizon’s Droid DNA phone is weird, cringe-worthy and also promotes something else: Transhumanism. Indeed, the ad does not only sell a smartphone. Not unlike movies and music videos, it normalizes the concept of “upgrading” humans by merging them with machines.

While most of us already entertain a somewhat unhealthy, dependent relationship with our cellphones, this ad makes things creepier by showing the device completely modifying the user’s body and genetic makeup. Yes, it is “only a commercial”, but all of the concepts behind it are real and will be available to a very rich and limited public very soon. Here’s the ad.


The ad takes place in some kind of transhumanist lab where the “Droid DNA Augmentation” process begins. Right from the start, we hear the usual vocabulary associated with transhumanism such as “augmentation”, “upgrade” and so forth. Many people believe that the human body is the most advanced machine on Earth. Not transhumanists.

We then see the guy's DNA makeup being transformed into a black, artificial, robotic DNA string.
When connected to the phone, the guy’s DNA makeup changes into a black, artificial, robotic DNA string. Was that included in his 3 year contract with Verizon?


While showing some kind of robot stuff being shot right in the guy's veins, we hear "neuro-speeds increased to 4G". Isn't that a little creepy and invasive procedure to get a new cell phone?
Something is then shot right in the guy’s veins. Meanwhile, we hear “neuro-speeds increased to 4G”. Yes, they do love “shooting” or inserting things into our bodies under the guise of “its good for you” in order to better monitor and control us.


While scientists are supervising the procedure, we hear "brain upgraded to a Quad Core processor". Really? Our brains are inferior to a Quad Core processor, which will be totally obsolete in about 10 months? Didn't know our brains were Pentium 4's.
While scientists are supervising the procedure, we hear “brain upgraded to a Quad Core processor”. Really? Are our brains inferior to a Quad Core processor, a technology that will be totally obsolete in about 10 months? Didn’t know our brains were Pentium 4’s.

The ad ends with a purely transhumanist slogan: “It’s not an upgrade to your phone, its an upgrade to yourself”. Yes. And then, if they don’t like you, they’ll just re-format your Quad-Core processor brain and re-install a better version of you. Go transhumanism!

you're sharp VC..
Keep it up !!
We Like It !!!!!!!!

So… if I buy their phone…my DNA gets spliced, a chip rammed up my arse, and my brain reformatted to Windows 8.
Thanks Droid it’s all I ever wanted!

Machine controlling men via transhumanism. Classic!

Who cares if it's only available to the rich. Transhumanism is not a "luxury" of the rich I want to indulge in.

as soon as I seen this I said it’s transhumanist.

I mean, I guess I can see why someone may be worried about this…But I think about things I know people have. Would you say that glasses is like the most ancient form of transhumanism; do you want to tell me that I'm submitting to the elite because I've needed glasses my whole entire life? How about hearing aids or robotic limbs? You are easily offending a lot of people with this ambiguatious post. There is a ton of grey area here; it's not as easy as "ohhp, there's Lady Gaga covering one of her eyes again."

This commercial creeped me out. Can't get more blatant than this. Thanks VC! :0)

Always read VC, never comment.. But, Pentium 4s: Lmao! Good One!!! & So True at the Same time. Keep Up the Fight 🙂

Yep I just knew there was somethin strange about this commercial. Ever since my eyes have been opened to all these different conspiracies, I see signs and symbolism everywhere and in everything. The crazy thing is every time I say to myself "Vigilant Citizen's gonna be all over this"…low and behold…you are.

I remember seeing this commercial as well and thinking to myself how weird it was however all Android commercials that Verizon has put out have had pretty much the same theme that this one did. Having said that, I recently upgraded to the Droid DNA and it is a beast of a phone. Surely that must count for something. I’m actually typing this very post nit right now. If HTC and Verizon keep putting out pimped out devices like this one, I can look the other way when their stupid commercials come on.

I think I'll release a competing phone and call it "The Borg Phone"

it's funny how people ask me " OH MY GOD YOU DON'T WATCH T.V?" or "(GASP) YOU DON'T HAVE A CELL PHONE?" hahaha if they only knew just how free I am

When I saw this commercial for the first time I just about fell over. I’m glad to see you covering it. I wouldn’t have noticed its underlying message without reading the information on your site first, VC. Keep up the hard work and thanks for what you do!

Good call VC. Did anyone else notice the 'eye' view coming from inside is forehead looking down at himself, and the camera zooming and as it enters through the forehead there is an eye/pupil- even has a reflection of what it's viewing.

Yeah… when I first saw this commercial, I, like many others of like mind on this site, also cringed… ;-/ This phone and so called technology does not attract me at all… I have to agree, the human mind and body are thousands of times more complex than any tool or technology that man can create…. they often mimic, but can never quite do it like the original… perhaps, if the theories of extra-terrestrial or extra-dimensional beings is true, then these cold, unfeeling, technological beings as they must be, must at the same time hate AND admire the human form and wish it for themselves, need it… yet they can never quite recreate it…. so instead they have to subjugate it… thus we have 'Transhumanism.' The 'upgrade' to humanity.. if they ever manage to convince the masses to actually implement technology literally into the human body, which they are getting… Read more »

Oh and to add to my own post just 7 minutes ago (not 'Anonymous' as it says), oh well…. is this commercial, like VC says, actually demonstrating and actual device that will augment one's DNA and merge technology with the human body and mind? Well no, ofc not, but it does represent the mind of the elite and Transhumanist that wishes this on humanity and whose scientists are probably working on it as we speak…. as is being said on this site… anyway…

Oh yeah, knew I would forget something.. there is a specific technology that is already out but being introduced little by little, right now it is only in Austin, TX (technology central) and Salt Lake City, UT of all places… another emerging technological center, you'd be surprised… don't be fooled by the Mormon thing at all…)… but of all things, it is called ISIS… another occult and esoteric symbol with many layers of meanings… but anyway, of all companies, no big surprise at all! Verizon is touting it…. ofc… as…. drum roll please….. as a way to pay for everything through your cell phone… so, the disappearance of all cash… [insert Book of Revelations reference here…] 😉 So it's like that's one step, then one step further, separate but related, integrate technology into ALL facets of daily life and eventually literally the human body and mind and we do have… Read more »

another good article we dont have verizon in the uk, but the agenda goes forwards nonetheless. Ill be watching out for similar ads (we had a lot of dodgy corporate propaganda around the olympics) glad to see youre still writing its always interesting ive been getting your articles by email for years now.. Its appreciated!!! 🙂

We all need to leave our computers – they are a part of our brain – externalized. So easy to track us. Are we really to believe we are to be dependent on laptops and computers for the rest of human history? Nah. S**t's weak.

The 'S**t' may be weak as you say….. but that does not mean it will go out of existence… they are already and will further develop technology of which our sci-fi movies and TV shows touted as 'science-fiction' only some years ago, but are soon becoming 'science fact.' So the fact that you say the technology is 'weak' means they will want to further integrate it into something not as 'weak' namely the human mind and body…. which this whole article is about…. and however they track everything on the computer, imagine how much easier and more ubiquitous it would be to track individuals when they have microchips, in effect homing devices integrated into their brains or bodies. Just be aware…. whatever you think in your wildest dreams, they have already started working on …. and whatever is the worst thing you can think of doing, they have probably already… Read more »

I'll be first in line to get my biotronic brain chip with web access. Already need one. Just I'll tweak it out of the control grid.

If you can….!!

weird, or wonderful brain comapred to an infime quad core cortex a15 processor ._.

There is another one where the beats by dre speakers are implanted the the mans ears. I know some idiot is looking at the commercial saying”cool, I gotta get that”

That's why I goes into Sciences that people calls it "Pseudoscience": there's far more than just "Merging man with Machine" when it comes to getting Superhuman powers(since Human Body is the most advanced machine on earth)

When I saw this commercial, I expected to see articles written about it.

Anonymous LTC FTC comment–this is a different “Anonymous” poster!

I saw this commercial first…
It has more wonderful blatancy than the first video posted… Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXyNeOZrtRk

My husband and I saw this commercial over the weekend and when we heard the slogan at the end…we just looked at each other and said "mmph..transhumanism" – blatent much!

artificial neurons that could be turned on and off…would be good for treating depression and schizophrenia 🙂

Transhumanist article about drugs:

I just saw this commercial not 10 minutes ago and thought “I should see if vigilant has a new article.” Dead on.

Even Miley Cyrus, who long, long ago used to give Jesus Christ the glory at her concerts has jumped headlong into the darkness. Almost hard to believe someone so seemingly sincere about her faith could not only lose it, but rebel so brazenly against God. Her current twitter account has Baphomet wallpaper, she refused to capitalize 'God' in her tweets and used x-mas instead of Christmas. To top it all off, of the 190 people she follows are infamous anti-Christian blasphemers & bigots Tyler the creator, Seth Macfarlane, AmericanHorrorStory, the Illuminati, Kesha, Nicki Minaj etc. etc. Just in the last decade the world has decayed to an almost unrecognizable state. https://twitter.com/MileyCyrus

Her twitter wallpaper is full of golden ugly baphomets.

Wow…only a slightly weird choice of wallpaper for a person that has a child like obsession with dogs, don't you think? Not to mention I counted 3 or 4 retweets of "The Illuminati" tweets in the past month or so, one quote from the Dalai Lama, and a mention on Christmas Day of having reoccurring dreams of her and Lady giving each other foot rubs. One tweet just says "11:23"…any significance in those numbers? I know nothing about numerology except that 11 and 7 are important as they are prime or "power" numbers, 1+1+2+3=7. Anyway I have no idea about that just throwin it out there. I thought this was pretty interesting- on Dec.12 she tweeted "Why have I been looking at the clock at 5:19 everyday for the past week….". So just completely out of curiosity I googled "bible 5:19" and here's are what the first two results give… Read more »

Well '11' is a very powerful magical number in numerology… and I have heard that the Iluminati like the number '23' for some reason, not sure why….

Perhaps because it is 22+1? I don't know… but '22' is known as a 'Master number' very powerful indeed.

As far as Baphomet is concerned, that is a symbol of some secret society rituals…. and of course if one is to survive very long in the music industry, one must adapt usually to its mores…. often…. unfortunately…. not ideal, but a fact…. I'm afraid… but just because she has all that on her site, or throws out certain quotes doesn't totally mean that she has completely 'fallen' for the dark side… she might be just keeping up appearances… ;-0

Thanks for the solid info on the numbers. I wasn't really implying anything with the things I noticed EXCEPT for the Baphomet. I'm sorry but there's no way a normal person chooses(or allows) Baphomet, a figure which has been "revived in the 19th century as a figure of occultism and Satanism", as their twitter background. If you are implying that Miley is simply "tricking" her execs and handlers and producers, I really don't think that's the answer. Not to mention this isn't like me or you having a Baphomet, this girl is idolized by millions of tweens and teens. What would they think if they somehow found out that ugly ass gold goat thing in their beloved Miley's background is a figure of occultism and Satanism??

The bible says : "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he" Proverbs 23:7. The first time i saw your site vc i was very please to know i can understand some of the things THEY do to influence us. But when i think through the truth is that only by knowing a good bank note you can be sure that people won't deceive you with a false one!!!! No matter how they make it!!!! So my point is that even do your information is in a certain way good people need to KNOW and EXPERIENCE the love of GOD for THEM which you are not presenting!!! (You can only give what you have)! All people learn through your articles minister doom!!! they don't see it like the bible present it! All this is happening and will happen but the bible says WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH… Read more »
Roy, good observation and a good question to VC. VC, I must say that this is my first time of commenting on your website even though I come here every first week of the month to see the pics of the month. I have been following VC for the past 3 years and pretty much have read all this articles and watched all the videos. But I keep wandering and asking myself if VC a born again Christian professing the LOVE of Christ above all the articles he writes for people to comment on? Some of people on here would want to know more about VC because as one person also asked some time past on this same platform, WHAT IF ALL OF THIS ON HERE IS FOR US TO KNOW AND JUST CONFUSE THE WEAK MINDS AND REALLY YOU KNOW AND SO WHAT? Please VC are you a CONFESSED,… Read more »

Spade – It’s not an upgrade to your garden, its an upgrade to yourself.

Anoymous LTL FTC: below is what the objection to transhumanism is all about…. In the last days, knowledge shall increase (see Daniel 12:4). Read Rev 14:9-12. The microchip is commonly suspected as being that "Mark of the Beast". I in no way reject this theory, but may I also submit this to ponder…. Man is created in God's image. Anything that changes (ie. "improves" or "augments" as stated in the commercial) our DNA makeup is (by default) rejecting the image in which God created us as and is accepting of the image of the beast. Every medical advance is not necessarily evil, but certainly those which change or DNA are. Remember that ever since man's "great fall" in the garden, the only way for man to be reconciled back to God involved God becoming a man with man's DNA (while still being God), and shedding His blood as the sacrificial… Read more »

Great viewpoint Jim. Completely agree with where your coming from.

LTL FTC here.

Out of curiosity, what is the objection to transhumanism? If it is one of control, I imagine it’s really a debate about good vs evil intent of an arbitrary utility (e.g. guns, closed source software, the internet, human “upgrades” – or simply accessories). If it’s not about control… what is it about?

Is it a religious fixation upon a Godly definition of man?

Keen to know more. Keep up the good work!

i dont know if any of you guys seen it yet but look up Project Kara on youtube , this ad reminded me of that video .

Saw that recently and thought it was creepy and evil! That guy pretty much turns into something bad. The DNA part looks like its getting eaten by something cancerous and evil. The whole commercial sends out a rather bad message. Who would buy something after seeing a commercial like that? I'm so glad that I don't have a cellphone and even when I had one I rarely used it. People these days become slaves of technology and are completely drawn to their cellphones and don't see what's happening around them. I call those people "Cellphone zombies"! I enjoy being independent and like to watch the world around me, with a cellphone it feels like you have to be in connection wherever you are and at any time. I noticed people will get upset when someone doesn't react to their call or message right away. I also see the new cellphones… Read more »

When I saw this commercial, I thought of YOU VC. I knew you were going to post something and I am glad you did. I even had to explain this to my husband.

The DNA chain looks like a human eye – did you get that?


That poor girl. With parents like that, hangers on and sycophants everywhere, what chance does she stand? She's the product of her environment.

i know…..lilo feels like a cash cow and she has no mother cuz dina is atrocious!!! i used to see her old interviews and she was adorable…may God have mercy on her

Another commenter posted the following- I concur!

VC, it would be great if you posted an article on how these decisions get made — how the photographers get the pop stars to cover one eye, or who inserts the symbols into the Katy Perry and Ke$ha videos, how the lyricists write satanic songs like "Umbrella" for Rhianna. Are hundreds of creative people in on the joke, or are there a few handlers around the stars who say, "hey, it would be great if you could digitally turn Rhianna's pose into the head of a horned demon?"

just wait 'til Iron Man 3 comes out…

Its funny cuz my friends parents work for Apple and over the summer they said theyre launching a campaign pretty soon to get an Apple product that can identify your face, will scan your fingerprints as you use it, and scan your eye. At first I was like bullshit but as I look into the front camera of my iPhone I cant help but think they've already done so.

every time this commercial comes on i roll my eyes

i felt so proud and vigilant for knowing the symbolism and message before reading it on VC hahah…y.a…y…..

This is weird, I just bought a new phone a few days ago. I didn't have a phone for 2 months when my old ancient phone finally died because I didn't know what phone to buy. Phones became scary. But since the new school year just started here in southeast asia , I had to get one so my son can get in touch with me, well I still have to drive him around. The saleslady handed me a samsung s something droid whatever. I saw the word droid and I recoiled. I took a nokia with actual key pads not a full touch screen. I reminded a niece just last week that she is wasting half her life with her head down on her phone. I told family members who visit my house that I do not want to see a phone while we're having a meal. Not many… Read more »

Woah! They're really desperate, huh? Time is running out for them… pathetic! LOL

Sad to say, this is already going on now. Next time you all are out in public, look and observe. When you are standing in line at starbucks, look how many people pay with their cell phones. Look at how people walk down the street mindlessly focused on their phone. The cell phone itself is a form of brainwash. I have a Note 2….ill admit that I am a frequent uset but only when I am seated and have absolutley nothing to do at the moment. Its all a shame how people FREAK OUT when they lose their phones. Its like someone pulled the plug on their life support machine.

“Something is then shot right in the guy’s veins.”

This reminds me of a scene in, “A Beautiful Mind” where Nash was in a mental hospital, trying to dig out an implanted device which had previously given codes for dead drop points.

Remember when it was only the ‘crazies’ saying they were chipped by secret agency X,Y,Z, and/or aliens?

This movie reveals a likely future:

Idiocracy (2006):

Also what appears to be three letter ‘b’s seems a lot like the number 6 x3 in this commercial for HP:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJZwgXO1L6o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3iECmRPO0s

If I remember correctly, as I’m not viewing that commercial at the moment, there is a similar circle like device where an object lit in the color red is destroyed.

Yes. When the kitten becomes a Cat it’s put outside with the Coyotes. Your reformat line is killer.

…'all of the concepts behind it are real and will be available to a very rich and limited public very soon.'

I wonder how many Richie Rich's will spring for the real "upgrade". From a certain angle it sounds "really cool", kinda how they sucker kids into buying the latest action figure. I'm sure they'll love it until they realize everyone else is rising vibrationally and they are not going anywhere. That is if they even have a mind to think by then..

I have noticed that there are a lot of people who apppear to be people in flesh. But when you talk to them, the appear to be somewhere else. I sometimes hear lioke apoppping sound like static sounds surroundingthem.

I also feel quesy and get a headache. I had this experience when I worked in DC back in the 1990s near the capitol. It just could have been a figment of my imagination because I don't have any type of facts to back these experiences up. Just got this weird feeling around some people when I encountered them.
