So here it is. The “official commercial” (according to a news release) for Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao. Accept no substitutes. No “unofficial commercials” allowed.
It’s not the kind of fight that needs much hyping, so it’s a fairly minimalist commercial. Plus, some rubes like me will just put it on their website for free, so it’s easy publicity no matter what.
Per the news release:
It serves as the lynchpin to an aggressive multi-media marketing campaign that will take place in the next four weeks. The overall Mayweather vs. Pacquiao marketing campaign is expected to receive unprecedented levels of support from pay-per-view providers.
But I’m oddly into it. Like a lot of fans, I’ve wanted to see these guys walk to center ring and face off for a long time. This is as close as we get until Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao actually happens on HBO/Showtime pay-per-view on May 2.
