A visual guide to how Manny Pacquiao has endorsed a product for almost every part of his body
To say that Manny Pacquiao is a busy man right now would be a big understatement. The fighting pride of the Philippines seems to get his hands on anything that interests him, or should I say, kung ano trip niya. Boxing, politics, showbiz, and just recently, basketball and MMA are just some of the things Pacquiao’s been busy with.
But aside from attending to all of these endeavors, Pacquiao has another thing which he probably can’t keep track of: product endorsements!
It’s crazy how Pacquiao endorses an assortment of products. From sports apparel (Nike), to pizza (Pizza Hut), to beer (San Miguel), to cars (KIA Motors), and even fruits and vegetables (State Street), you name it, Pacquiao’s endorsed it. He is literally a walking sponsorship machine, head (and shoulders) to toe.
For a complete picture, here’s a graphic of Pacquiao’s long list of endorsement deals as of 2014.
As of June 2014, his deals with Hewlett-Packard, Hennessy, and Wonderful Pistachios have all expired, and that dropped his annual income from endorsements to below $1 million. However, despite these developments, Pacquiao still earns $800,000 (roughly PHP 35 million) per year on endorsements, a big reason why he’s currently the 11th highest-paid athlete in the world according to Forbes.
True enough, as Quinito Henson would put it, no Filipino athlete comes close to Pacquiao’s popularity and mainstream media exposure when it comes to endorsements. As one of the most recognizable and well-liked figures in the Philippines, there’s no doubt that our “Pambansang Kamao” is now the country’s “Pambansang Endorser.”
