Johnny Manziel’s First Cleveland Commercial Is Out

The 2013 ESPY Awards - Show

Another day, another story about Johnny Manziel. However, this time, instead of talking about the truckloads of women that he hangs out with or his endless amount of partying in Cabo, it’s actually something a little more related to his job as a quarterback for the Browns – Johnny Manziel’s first Cleveland commercial is out and airing on television.

The commercial for is for Cleveland Nissan, and it’s nothing out of the ordinary. It’s the typical quarterback backs up and throws the ball as far as he can at the fast car. In the beginning, Menzel says, “In Cleveland, there are two ways to win big in a Nissan.” It’s all very typical, not unlike commercials and videos with athletes that we’ve seen before.

Actually, to be quite honest, for a guy who has such a “party hard” attitude and ladies man persona, I was kind of shocked by how dorky the Johnny Manziel’s commercial was. I mean, I know Johnny Football himself was directing it or anything, but the whole thing just played like a cheesy car ad that could have been from any decade. I’m shocked that the people at Cleveland Nissan didn’t try to do something more with Manziel, to liven up their commercial and maybe get people talking more. Or maybe they just think Manziel’s face alone will be enough to help them sell cars. I’m not sure – again, this is why I was not a business major of any sorts in college.

Check out the video for yourself below and let us know what you think about Johnny Manziel’s first big commercial for Cleveland.
