Beast Mode? Marshawn Lynch strokes raccoon in new Xbox spot

He might not have a lot to say, but the Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch is pretty awesome nonetheless in a new Xbox commercial Microsoft unveiled Wednesday.
The spot opens with an agent-looking guy asking Lynch what it was like when he busted his epic 67-yard touchdown run in a 2011 playoff game against the Saints.
In classic Marshawn fashion, he sits stoically across the desk, munching on his trademark Skittles while refusing to utter a word — for some unexplained reason while stroking a stuffed raccoon (really.)
But he becomes much more animated when the guy takes him to a living room, where he’s shown the highlight of the run through an Xbox One.
“Can you run that back one more time?” he says excitedly.
Then with a sly grin, he delivers a line made famous in one of his rare Super Bowl interviews during media before the big game: “I’m all about that action, boss,” he says with a smile.
It’s not “Stop freakin’, call Beacon,” but it’s pretty close.
In case you missed it, Lynch had a lot more to say recently in an exclusive interview with the guys from The Barbershop on 710 ESPN Seattle. Check it out here.
