Marshawn Lynch Does Hilarious Progressive Commercial With Kenny Mayne (Video)
We’re beginning to figure out the formula to all of these Marshawn Lynch interviews:
Pay him money, he’ll provide insightful answers. Pay him nothing and threaten to fine him and he’ll provide meaningless, repetitive answers. Pay him nothing and don’t threaten him, and he probably won’t even show up.
The NFL did’t pay Lynch for appearing at Super Bowl Media Day. In fact, they threatened to fine him $500,000 if he didn’t show up, so Lynch answered every one of the media’s questions today with “I’m here so I won’t get fined.” Skittles, on the other hand, paid him to take part in their own private press conference, and the Seahawks running back had no problem opening up to them.
The people at Progressive decided to take the latter route when interviewing Lynch, as they paid him to sit down and speak with ESPN’s Kenny Mayne. The result was some very interesting insight regarding car insurance.
