Johnny Manziel as 'Johnny JamBoogie' in new Snickers advert

Published Add your comment

The Snickers tagline goes “You aren’t you when you’re hungry.” and Johnny Manziel is far from the electrifying football star we know when he's hungry in this new advert by the Chocolate bar company.

Have a Snickers

So now you know what Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel is like when he is hungry, he turns into 'Johnny JamBoogie'.

The former Heisman trophy winner and affectionately known as 'Johnny Football' in the football community is a flamboyant aerobics instructor that teaches jazzercise on the side.

Snickers have centred around the point that one bite of their delicious chocolate bar can transform Manziel from his out-of-character aerobics persona, back to the focused, tough football player that he is.

We've seen the dancing-feet of Manziel whilst scrambling for his life on the gridiron, but not in the same vain as teaching middle-aged woman jazzercise.

The rookie quarterback is certainly in the spotlight at the present time in the NFL and his prime-time commercial with Snickers will just add to the attention he will receive come the start of the regular season.

Manziel and his replacement

Manziel played for the first time since being announced as the backup for the Browns in their final pre-season game against the Chicago Bears.

Early signs showed another jittery start for the rookie but he again he flashed 'Johnny Football' moments outside the pocket including an touchdown drive capped off with a one-yard strike to Jim Dray.

Elsewhere Johnny was in the headlines but for another player's performance, the whole left at Texas A&M for when he left for the pro's has been filled by Sophomore Kenny Hill.

Hill set a University record for a debut performance when he threw for 511 yards including 3 touchdowns in a season opening victory for Texas A&M 52-28 over favoured South Carolina.
