Calvin Johnson’s New Nike Commercial: Calvin And Johnson

By: Evan Jankens

Earlier this year Nike released CJ81 Trainer Max. Now the promotion around the shoe has started — and it’s something to see.

In Calvin Johnson’s Nike commercial, Johnson is shown walking through a crowd of people and talking to himself. As he is signing an autograph, a different side of Calvin shows up. And that different side is ‘Johnson’.

Johnson is played by Sean ‘Puff Daddy’ Combs. Johnson seems to do all the dirty work while Calvin can just focus on football, thinking up ways to top 1,964 yards from the year before. Let me know what you think of this commercial.

I think it’s great that Nike is making a marketing campaign around Johnson. Beyond shoes you can now purchase CJ81 Shorts, T-shirts and sweatshirts.
