Manny Pacquiao’s Brilliant New Footlocker Ad

Manny Pacquiao. Has there been a more universally liked chap who gets paid great sums to repeatedly punch people in the face? Hell, we'd even let him punch us in the face.

Make no mistake, he’s the people’s champion. And it’s a title we don’t expect him to lose going into his long awaited rumble with seasoned douchebag Floyd Mayweather on 2 May.

Already billed as the ‘Fight of the Century’, the pair’s upcoming slugfest has been spoofed brilliantly by Pacquiao for Foot Locker, who had previously played on the fact Mayweather kept ducking the fight and now return with an even better, and arguably meta, ad.

Everyone knows the Pac-Man has expert timing. But who knew it was in comedy?
