WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Remember in late July, when Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw attempted to knock an apple off Jimmy Kimmel’s head with a ‘baseball’?

Well, in the ‘what you may have missed over the Labor Day weekend’ file, Robert Griffin III attempted a similar apple trick off the head of Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, for Nissan’s ‘Heisman House’ commercial series.

Kinda.

Filmed in a parking lot as a look behind-the-scenes, RGIII, football in-hand and sporting a Baylor Bears jersey, points to a Texas A&M jersey-wearing Manziel standing some four cars away, and says, “Johnny Manziel over there, he’s questioning my accuracy. We’re gonna end that today.”

“You ready big boy?” Griffin asks Manziel, who’s placing an apple atop his head.

Griffin proceeds to rocket a football at Johnny Football, who’s quickly replaced by a tackling dummy wearing the same A&M jersey in an intentionally forced sleight of hand, with the RGIII-thrown ball knocking an apple to the ground, and the camera cutting back to Griffin declaring, “That’s real!”

For his efforts, Manziel elected to reward Griffin with a congratulatory low-five, in lieu of his middle finger.

Watch the video above.
