Aside from being an eight division title holder 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:
