An Oklahoma car dealership has used the autograph allegations surrounding Johnny Manziel as a way to try to drum up some business.
Fowler Toyota, located in Norman, the home of the University of Oklahoma, set its latest commercial in a hotel room involving autographs, cash, shady-looking businessmen and a replica of the Heisman Trophy. Yeah, it's not too hard to figure out who they're mimicking.
However, it was Manziel who made a mockery of the Sooners in the Cotton Bowl last season. Texas A&M won 41-13 and Manziel, in his first game after winning the Heisman, threw for 287 yards and ran for 217. And then after the game, Manziel made some money in Oklahoma. No, not from autographs, but at one of the state's casinos.
Manziel isn't the only college football figure the dealership has spoofed in advertisements. After Mike Gundy's famous "I'm a Man, I'm 40!" press conference rant, the dealership capitalized.
