Last week, Calvin Johnson was hanging with P. Diddy, today he's turning into pop machines.

In ESPN's latest installment of their famous "This Is SportsCenter" commercial series, Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson, also known as "Megatron", transforms into a pop machine. The 30-second spot has Johnson talking with ESPN anchor Stuart Scott, when another anchor approaches, looking for Calvin. Johnson transforms into a pop machine to hide. Once Kevin Negandhi leaves, Calvin turns back into human.

"Shoot, that was close," he tells Stuart Scott.
