Calvin Johnson and Detroit sports stars film music video at Silverdome

PONTIAC, Mich. - Detroit sports stars gave the Pontiac Silverdome a final farewell on Friday. 

Calvin Johnson, John Salley, Darren McCarty, and a group of local legends filmed a music video ahead of Sunday's demolition. 

Longtime Lions center Dominic Raiola brought the stars together to help hip-hop artist Privlege film a music video inside and outside the stadium.

Raiola took a group of the athletes inside the gates before Thanksgiving, but on Friday, they were told they could only film from a distance -- because the dynamite had already been laid for Sunday's demolition.

Some of the other stars included former Pistons star Earl Cureton, former Lions linemen Rob Sims and Lomas Brown, and legendary boxer Tommy Hearns.
