The NFL's newest young star and the ever controversial Cleveland Browns Quarterback Johnny Manziel has shown some amazing skill in a new advert.

Starring in an advert for a Nissan dealership, Manziel showed he was born to be on TV giving a very confident performance while talking to the camera, but showing a little more.

He pretended to take a snap with the car at the line of scrimmage and acting like Manziel's new wide receiver.

With the car running a route that will be ran by many receivers in the NFL this season, Manziel unleashed a pass to the vehicle.

He nailed the pass straight through the passenger side window sending the crowd who had emerged into a frenzy after the terrific skill.

Everyone who wasn't the driver of the car itself after he emerged from the vehicle after having been struck in the face by the ball.

The commercial has gone down well with the fans and is the first 'positive' publicity to be gotten from Manziel for the Browns franchise.

Media blackout

After the Browns drafted Manziel as the 22nd overall pick in this years NFL Draft, there has been a lot of hype around the league, the fans and the city of Cleveland.

There was that much hype in fact, that the Browns kept Manziel all to themselves, refusing the media access to his first few ventures onto the field with the Browns this summer.

That hasn't kept Manziel out of the media however as his public appearances have come to us in large quantity and they're always eventful.

From him appearing very intoxicated on champagne to him deciding to become a bar tender, Manziel has kept us entertained despite the Browns best efforts at hiding him.

Media approval might not be enough

Without doubt, the media loves Manziel and the fans of not just the Browns but most of the NFL are all caught up in Manzielmania.

The decision as to whether or not it will be enough to convince Browns head coach Mike Pettine to make Manziel his starter is yet another question.

It has been looking all off-season like Brian Hoyer will remain as the Browns starting Quarterback and I don't think many people will be surprised with whoever takes the field for Cleveland's first snap this season.
