Paper Marshawn Lynch covers entire side of 10-story office building

Sunday February 1st, 2015

Expedia recreated a 10-story-tall Marshawn Lynch on the windows of one side of its corporate headquarters in Bellevue, Wash., and the end result is even more imposing than Lynch running down hill right at you. 

This isn't the first time the local company has paid tribute to its team: Before last season's Super Bowl, which the Seahawks won 43-8, the company's creative directors erected a similarly-sized Richard Sherman. 

"Just like the Seahawks, we knew we had to be even better than last year. We see all the 12s and we're pretty creative here so we figured we could one up it," Jonathan Graham, a UX engineer with the company, told 

Perhaps even more astounding in Seattle's notoriously eco-friendly climate is that the replication was made out of 3,000 sheets of construction paper. 

The top of the display, which required 30 people to complete, reads 'Hawk Re-Pete,' just in case you weren't sure where the company's allegiances lie.
