Nike released a new advertisement titled “Calvin and Johnson” on YouTube this morning featuring the Detroit Lions wide receiver and Sean “P. Diddy” Combs.
The ad depicts Johnson separating into two personas “Calvin” and “Johnson,” where his first-name focuses on football and last-name focuses on the fame. It is the latest in a long string of ads featuring Detroit Lions players, a change from decades past that rarely had advertisements with Lions players in them. This Nike spot finishes telling the watcher to “unleash speed.”
