Here comes the sequel to the most-watched Windows Phone video of all time.

Windows Phone continues to post the largest year-over-year global market share gains of leading mobile operating systems and win awards for customer satisfaction. Apparently, many people also like our ads.

When “The Wedding” debuted last April, one pundit called it “the best tech ad in years.” Our humorous take on the smartphone wars has since been watched more than 6.25 million times on YouTube and shared more than 27,000 times—a Windows Phone record.

Today we wanted to share a sneak peak of our latest spot, “The Recital.” Set to air during MTV’s Video Music Awards this Sunday, the ad features the same director (Roman Coppola) and many of the same zany actors as the original. But the real star is the new Windows Phone 8-powered Nokia Lumia 1020, which CNET declared has the “best camera in the industry.” AT&T customers also give it a 5-star average rating. Check it out:

If you haven’t held a Lumia 1020 in your hand, or tried snapping a picture with it yet, I highly recommend heading over to AT&T or a Microsoft Store for a test drive—and feel free to leave your DSLR or point-and-shoot camera at home.

  • Appreciate Microsoft for this lovely add. The play of child was wonderful. It gave several new inspirational ideas to me for my Encore Party DJs jobs. <b><a href="www.encorepartydjs.com/" target="_blank" rel="dofollow">Encore Party DJs</a></b> http://www.encorepartydjs.com/

  • Microsoft please listen❕❕.. These are some if the best ads I have ever seen for any product❕... Please bring back Roman Coppola, and those same actors, for an epic Superbowl commercial this season... Please, please, please do this❕❕❕❕

    Great ad!  Can't wait to see it on the TV.

    I'm on U.S. Cellular (which may or may not be considered a major carrier) but it only just recently started carrying the Samsung ATIV Odyssey which seems to be a middling sort of phone.  When will Microsoft convince them to carry the Nokia brands?  Or even the HTC phones?!!??

    You could have used a Lumia 920 in the ad and it would still be relevant!

    When are you guys going to convince Sprint to get a Nokia windows phone? We are the only major network that has no Nokia.

  • Favorite moment? For me it's either the guy in the rafters or guy in plant costume.
