This Mobile Phone Commercial Combines Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Anyone else get that horror-nerd happiness when they see totally unrelated things reference their favorite genre? Like that time Apple included the Frankenstein monster in their Christmas ad?

The OnePlus 5 is a smartphone boasting a dual camera, aimed at those who want to take high quality photos on the go. Sounds pretty standard, but their current commercial for the product is titled ‘Lake Blood’, and features a cabin by a lake which looks very similar to Camp Crystal Lake. Instead of a hockey mask wearing killer, the teens in the ad are targeted by a slasher who is clearly inspired by Leatherface of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise.
