Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch’s love for Skittles is well known. During last year’s run to the Super Bowl, Lynch and Skittles teamed up for a promotion in which they released a limited time “Seattle Mix” bag filled with Seahawks colored Skittles. It was a fitting relationship, and one that they are continuing into this season.
Recently Lynch and Skittles teamed up for a new commercial, concentrating on Lynch’s love for the tasty candy. It’s pretty clear that to be a top level athlete, Lynch has to have a high level of motivation. But his motivation in this commercial is not necessarily a championship or a pro bowl selection, it’s a bag of skittles. As he works out a bag of Skittles dangles in front of him, and then he moves onto the deadlift, but instead of the normal weights, they are clear weights filled with Skittles.
It’s a hilariously awesome commercial, that ends with the headline, “Skittles… Game day is about to get awesome.”
Marshawn Lynch is a four-time pro bowl player and was named NFL 1st Team All-Pro in 2013. Last season he rushed for 1,257 yards in route to helping the Seahawks to a Super Bowl Championship.
