Pharrell, TNT, NBA Link For All-Star Promotion

Pharrell Williams recently partnered with cable network TNT to promote the NBA’s

2006 All-Star Game.

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


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.
