Aside from being an eight-division titleholder in boxing, a congressman, and an actor, Manny Pacquiao is now also a smartphone endorser. HP (Hewlett Packard) tapped Pacquiao to endorse one of their latest smartphones the HP Veer. This is an Android-based device that features a very sleek and compact design and is smaller than the average size high-end smartphone.
Here’s the new HP Veer advertisement featuring Manny Pacquiao:
