By: / September 6, 2013

Nike recently unveiled their latest commercial starring Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and Diddy. The high-profile life of an NFL superstar warrants tons of media attention and plenty of love from fans. Calvin Johnson is no prima-donna wide receiver, last season he broke the single season receiving yards record (1,964) dodging defenders and the spotlight at will. Nike Football pairs this odd couple together to contrast Calvin’s calm and subtle demeanor with Diddy’s flamboyant personality. The mogul appears as Calvin’s helpful side-kick “Johnson,” who requests to shoulder the load of obligations, entourages and hype to help Calvin focus on football.
