Verbose not working

I can't get the verbose mode to show up. I do have "-v" (without quotes) in the boot args. I do hold cmd-v (tried ctrl-v and Winkey-v as I have a PC keyboard), no dice. Always the Apple logo and no verbose output. What gives?

EDIT: Jesus Christ I need to reset NVRAM in order to get the boot args working.
