Calvin Johnson transforms in new This is SportsCenter ad

Calvin Johnson is pretty difficult to find over at the ESPN offices. Johnson, or Megatron, shows off his ability to transform in a new This is SportsCenter commercial. He quickly shifts into a vending machine in order to avoid an awkward confrontation about a report he hasn't handed in. The concept here is brilliant and falls right in line with the level of excellence we've all come to expect from a This is SportsCenter advertisement. 

Make sure you watch Megatron's eyes around the 0:15 mark. It appears that even a vending machine needs to blink.
