Kevin Garnett Becomes A 'Globetrotter' In New HP Spot

May 8, 2009: He may not be in a Boston Celtics' uniform due to his knee injury, but Kevin Garnett travels around the world as the star of a TV spot breaking this weekend for Hewlett-Packard's new Pavilion dv2. In the spot, "All-Rounder," Garnett, who was just named to the 2008-09 All-Defensive First Team, is seen from the neck down holding a basketball, which then turns into a Pavilion d2v laptop. As various items morph around him, Garnett offers, "Let's see. I have to prepare for my trip to China. Got some business deals lined up. Check up on the schools I sponsor, give them some tools. Man I'm hyped about that. Do a little research on the competition (using an NBA 2K9 videogame, which has Garnett on the cover). Okay, back to work." The laptop turns back into a basketball, which he uses to take a jump shot. Previous HP ads have featured Serena Williams, Gwen Stefani and Jay-Z. Garnett is handled by the William Morris Agency.
