CHICAGO (JGL) – Two more sponsors who had earlier enlisted the endorsement of Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao are not in hurry to re-hire his services.

GOODBYE COMMERCIAL:

This is the video clip on Youtube where Manny Pacquiao endorsed the HP Veer Commercial for the first and last time. It generated 458,177 views.

 


 

Cory Pforzheimer of HP (Hewlett-Packard Company) Corporate Communications told this reporter in an email that  “We haven’t had a relationship with him (Manny Pacquiao) since 2011” when sought for comment after Nike fired the Filipino Congressman for calling gay individuals as “worse than animals.” 
Ms. Pforzheimer did not elaborate if HP, an American global information technology company headquartered in Palo AltoCalifornia, will re-enlist the endorsement services of Pacquiao.

HP asked Pacquiao to endorse its product, Hewlett Packard 9.7-inch TouchPad in 2011, when Manny fought Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Marquez in May and November, respectively, of that year and Manny won unanimous and majority decisions and retained the WBO welterweight titles of both fights, respectively, in MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Manny also promoted the HP Veer Commercial, which amassed 458,177 views on youtube.

Meanwhile, Danielle Barlow, spokesperson of Nestlé® Brand Ambassador, told this reporter in an email that “Nestlé is not a sponsor of Manny Pacquiao. We had a one-time promotion with him in 2015, which has ended.” 

NO FURTHER COMMENTS 

Ms. Barlow did not make any further comment when asked if Nestle, a Swiss transnational food and beverage company headquartered in Vevey, Vaud, Switzerland, will re-hire the endorsement services of Manny Pacquiao. Nestle asked Manny to pitch  Butterfinger, a candy bar created in 1923 in Chicago, Illinois, which is currently manufactured by Nestle. The bar consists of a flaky, crisp, peanut butter-flavored center covered with caramel compound chocolate.

Earlier, a spokesperson of Foot Locker based in New York city confirmed reports in an email to this reporter that the sportswear and footwear retail giant had “no plans to work with” Manny Pacquiao.
Mary Signorino said, "Foot Locker worked with Manny Pacquiao briefly and we are no longer in contract with him and have no plans to work with him."

Two weeks ago, Nike fired Manny for saying that gay individuals were “worse than animals” and terminated its contract with the world-boxing champion.

“We find Manny Pacquiao’s comments abhorrent,” the brand company said in a statement to Forbes. “Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community. We no longer have a relationship with Manny Pacquiao.” 

 

2 FOOT LOCKER COMMERCIALS 

 

As for Foot Locker, Pacquiao shot two Foot Locker commercials in 2014 and 2015. They gained wide popularity in the run-up of the promotion surrounding the Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight that finally took place last May. 

Serious MP

SERIOUS WITH HIS JOB:

Pacquiao had been dumped by Nike before over his views against same-sex marriage. His contract was terminated in 2012.

Pacquiao later apologized for his comments but never changed his opposition to same-sex marriage.

Two weeks ago, sportswear maker Nike announced it had officially fired Pacquiao as its endorser.

According to Forbes, Pacquiao income in 2015 totaled $160 million, with $12 million coming from endorsements.

A member of the Philippine House of Representatives, Pacquiao is running for Senate on the May 9,2016 elections. He is also being criticized for skipping attendance during Congressional sessions.

Pacquiao is facing for the third time Tim Bradley on April 9 in MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight could also be in jeopardy if his critics succeed on their requests to postpone the fight after the May 9 elections, which gives him an undue advantage in his campaign for the Philippine senate.

In a video clip that went viral, Pacquiao said in Filipino, “Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations? … If you have male-to-male or female-to-female [relationships], then people are worse than animals.”

But Pacquiao followed it up with an “apology,” saying, “I’m sorry for hurting people by comparing homosexuals to animals. Please forgive me for those I’ve hurt.”

After Nike dropped Pacquiao’s endorsement for the first time, Pacquiao said, “I rather obey the Lord’s command than obey the desire of the flesh. I’m not condemning anyone, but I’m just telling the truth of what the Bible says.”

Aside from Nike, Foot Locker, HP and Butterfinger, Pacquiao had also endorsed Wonderful Pistachios, Hennesy and other products in the Philippines.

Pacquiao follows other athletes who were rocked by scandals and had lost product endorsement deals. The others are American cyclist Lance Armstrong and American football running backs Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice and quarterback Michael Vick and South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius.
