Pharrell, TNT, NBA Link For All-Star Promotion
Williams will appear in commercials to promote the 55th Annual All-Star Game, which takes place at the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets, on Feb. 19, 2006.
The commercial will air on TNT and features highlights from the NBA season mixed with shots of Williams in a recording studio.
The last time an All-Star Game was played in Houston was in 1989, when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar played his record setting 18th and final All-Star Game.
The promo spots will run as Williams’ debut solo album In My Mind hits stores. The album was originally due in November and then it was delayed until December.
Now Pharrell’s solo endeavor, which features the singles “Can I Have it Like That” and “Angel,” is slated to hit stores on Jan. 24.
The 55th Annual All-Star Game airs live on TNT on Sunday, Feb. 19 and will be broadcast to over 200 countries worldwide.
