Johnny Snickers: Manziel adds popular candy bar to list of endorsements
Add "Johnny Snickers" to the list of nicknames for Johnny Manziel.
The Cleveland Browns quarterback, who has already filmed commercials for Nissan, McDonald’s and Nike, has signed on to be the next face of Snickers candy bars, according to Darren Rovell of ESPN.
Manziel will appear in a national television commercial for the brand’s "You’re Not You When You’re Hungry" campaign, a spokesman for Mars Chocolate North America told ESPN.
The ad campaign depicts people acting in a belligerent manner due to hunger.
Other celebrities who have appeared in the ad campaign include Joe Pesci, Aretha Franklin and Betty White — who helped boost the campaign’s popularity with her appearance in a Super Bowl XLIV commercial in 2010.
Manziel’s commercial will reportedly be unveiled closer to the start of the NFL season — and we can’t wait to see who Johnny Football becomes when he’s hungry.
