Manziel becomes 'Johnny JamBoogie' for Snickers
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

Johnny Football has a new nickname called Johnny JamBoogie after showing off his moves in a new Snickers commercial.

Manziel may have lost out as the Cleveland Browns starting quarterback to start the season, but he stars as a pitchman for Snickers when he teaches an aerobics class as "Johnny JamBoogie."

The former Heisman Trophy winner, wearing spandex and a headband, is teaching a class of women all of his moves until a confused man in a Browns uniform walks in and hands Manziel the candy bar.

Once Manziel takes a bite, he is immediately transformed into himself again wearing a Browns uniform.

"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 said in a statement. "I hope people have as much fun watching the ad as we did filming it."

Manziel also has national deals with Nike, McDonald's, Nissan and Panini.
