Tide jokes about Marshawn Lynch with clever Super Bowl ad

Friday January 30th, 2015

Marshawn Lynch explained that he attended Super Bowl media day earlier this week so that he wouldn't be assessed a financial penalty.

The Seattle Seahawks running back said some variation of "I'm here so I won't get fined" in response to questions from reporters.

On Friday, Tide posted an image to its Twitter account that alludes to Lynch's media strategy.

The image features a bottle of Tide laundry detergent surrounded by microphones and the words "I'm just here to get out stains."
