Forget about Johnny Football or Johnny Clipboard or Johnny Finger.

Johnny Manziel's new nickname: Johnny JamBoogie.

Well at least, that's his new nickname in a newly released commercial for Snickers.



The Cleveland Browns quarterback is seen sporting Spandex and a headband while teaching a class of women his very unique aerobics moves. Manziel seems to really be enjoying himself until a Browns teammate discovers the class and gives him a Snickers, instantly snapping him back to his old persona.

"It was a thrill to star in my own 'You're Not You When You're Hungry' commercial because it allowed me some funny version of myself that I might become when I'm hungry," Manziel told ESPN. "I hope people have as much fun watching the ad as we did filming it."

You can expect to see Manziel on the tube a lot this coming football season. He's also inked national deals with Nike, McDonald's, Nissan and Panini.
