Manny Pacquiao (Mike Alquinto, NPPA Images)Manny Pacquiao (Mike Alquinto, NPPA Images)Boxing is not the only arena where Manny Pacquiao has become a global brand. Now, it also includes a commercial endorsement.

The eight-division world champ's TV commercial for Hewlett Packard (HP)'s Touch Pad now airs daily over the giant US broadcast network NBC and its affiliate channels.

The commercial is part of Manny's multi-million dollar endorsement deal with HP, where he joins LeBron James and other prominent personalities as endorsers.

In the TVC, the Sarangani congressman recounts how he trains daily and beat the odds, even when others were putting him down.

He relates that he fought when others say he can't;  won the elections (for congressman) when others protested that he couldn't run in the elections, and even got into the recording studio with singer-songwriter Dan Hill to perform the hit "Sometimes When We Touch" when others thought he couldn't sing.

A portion also shows some of his boxing bouts.

The TVC can be viewed here.
