He may be out of the NFL, but Marshawn Lynch is definitely not out of the limelight. First, we brought you Beast Mode’s old teammates telling their best Marshawn stories. Then, we showed you this video of Lynch inexplicably playing chicken with a moving city bus and almost dying — which is actually related to the most recent piece of Lynch PR, as both took place during his recent trip to Scotland.
Why did Beast Mode take his talents to Caledonia? As part of his partnership deal with Skittles, it seems. Skittles sent Marshawn to Houston, Renfrewshire, Scotland to talk to the local Houstonians about the Super Bowl that’s soon to take place in Houston, Texas. Either that, or he meant to head down to Houston for the Super Bowl a little early and has the worst travel agent of all time (side note: shoutout to all the travel agents out there. Keep doing you — until you go out of business thanks to the internet, which is like you but better and free).
Either way, the video Lynch shot while in Houston is incredible.
1) That video of Marshawn playing chicken with the bus is 100x better now that I know that’s a Skittles pouch on the front of his bike.
2) Marshawn is very generous when it comes to dishing out Skittles.
3) The fact that Beast Mode doesn’t have his own television show is criminal. He runs the airwaves more dominantly than he runs the ball. He crushes screens better than he crushes screen passes. He’s the most lovable guy of all time and also happens to be hilarious, relatable, down to earth, and fun to watch. I revere him like old white people revere James Corden, except instead of doing things like “Carpool Karaoke,” Beast Mode is the guy who rides his bike straight at Corden’s car and causes him and special guest Tracy Chapman to swerve off the road.
Grandex Productions is interested if you’re interested, Marshawn. HMU..
