If you’ve been waiting for Johnny Manziel’s offseason off-field antics to finally hit their peak, today might be your lucky day.
The reigning Heisman Trophy winner and everyone’s favorite rising sophomore is now in a music video.
Trust us, we can’t make this stuff up.
Country artist Granger Smith released his music video for Silverado Bench Seat on Friday and of course Manziel was in it with girlfriend Sarah Savage, as well as former A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope.
You all remember Sarah Savage, don't you?
Manziel doesn’t really do anything in the video except toss a football, sit in a pickup truck with his girlfriend, flirt and then sign some autographs, but this has to be the first time a sophomore football player has been in a music video that he or one of his lightly talented friends didn’t produce.
Smith seems to be legit. Billboard actually did an article on him last month. And he’s a roaring A&M fan. He recorded a song called “We Bleed Maroon,” which became the unofficial anthem of A&M football.
I can’t decide whether this is cool, way over the top or some sort of NCAA violation. Pretty sure it’s not the latter (sorry every non-A&M fan around the country), but it’s definitely yet another ridiculous highlight in the offseason of Johnny Football.
Has football season started yet?
