How much does Marshawn Lynch have to love Skittles to do this commercial? This will be the strangest thing you see all day, and it’s full of awkward quotes… “How you doing, big daddy?”, “You just got to slide it right on in.”, “Do you know how big each package is? Six inches.”, “The girls are accessorizing with the Skittles!”
Dang, the hit he puts on him!
