Skittles got Marshawn Lynch to break his media silence

Tuesday January 27th, 2015

Marshawn Lynch has made a point all season to keep his interactions with the media as brief as possible, but on the eve of Super Bowl media day, Lynch released his most extensive interview yet in conjunction with Skittles.

The video covers hard hitting topics like cat videos vs. dog videos, jet packs vs. blimps, and which planet is Lynch's favorite (it is Earth, which is a great choice).

The biggest revelation from the press conference is probably how many Skittles Lynch manages to take down over the course of a two-and-a-half minute video, proving his love of the candy is not just talk.

Maybe if the media had more candy and less boring questions for the running back he would be a little bit more forthcoming with postgame quotes.
