Emersyn Truong isn't a soccer player, but she plays one on TV.

The Lansing area teen makes an appearance in a brand new Nike ad.  Emersyn's mom, Lisa, said her daughter's fifteen minutes of fame actually only lasts about a half second, "but it was a really fun experience for her."  That half second also earns full bragging rights.  Emersyn is seen in yellow, part of a group of soccer players running in the ad.

Lisa said the commercial was filmed in Detroit a couple months ago and Emersyn made the trip to participate.  "She said she's never had to run so much in her lifetime," Lisa said.

The ad was uploaded to Nike's YouTube on Sunday and is already nearing 3.5 million views.

While Emersyn doesn't play soccer, she has participated in cheer and volleyball at Grand Ledge High School.
