CLEVELAND (CBS) -- One of the perks to being a first-round pick and future face of the franchise are the sponsorship opportunities. For Johnny Manziel, taken 22nd overall by the Browns in the 2014 NFL Draft, that means a McDonalds spot with fellow Clevelander LeBron James, and more recently, a commercial for a local car dealer.

Okay, it's not nearly as exciting as seeing Manziel fire a football through a basketball hoop from a couple hundred feet away -- or watching him dunk on a eight-foot rim -- though the driver of the car might feel differently.

“Manziel made a perfect throw into the car,” Bernie Moreno, president of the Collection Auto Group (which owns the dealership) told TMZ. “Everybody celebrated except the driver who got out the car with a huge welt on his face.”

Moreno added that the car was going 25 mph and Manziel made a 40-yard throw.

It's a fine commercial but here's some free advice on how to make it better: Have Josh Gordon do the driving.
