(WXYZ) - It is good to be Calvin Johnson.
The Lions wide receiver tries to put aside his Hollywood appeal, but after debuting his new Nike commercial series last week, he's now appearing in a funny new 'This Is SportsCenter' ad.
WATCH THE AD BELOW:
Johnson is in a hallway at ESPN with anchor Stuart Scott. When someone comes around the corner, Calvin warns Scott, "I was never here."
When the camera turns away from Calvin, it comes back to find a surprise. The Lions All-Pro puts his Megatron mantra to work.
It's pretty good material.
