Video: NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Visited Scotland to Film This Awesome Skittles Ad

Marshawn Lynch’s recent visit to Scotland looked like the most fun ever.

We told you how the former NFL running back was in the country earlier this month and enjoying some dangerous bike riding in a Glasgow street.

Some fans caught Lynch on his BMX getting dangerously close to an oncoming bus and generally having a lot of fun away from the usual fanfare that follows him in the US.

In case you don’t know who he is, Lynch was a player in the NFL for nine seasons, appearing for the Buffalo Bills before finishing his career at the Seattle Seahawks at the end of last season.

As well as being a power runner in the league, putting up 1000+ all purpose yards in six campaigns, Lynch was renowned for his prickly approach to the media – and his love for Skittles.

And it’s Skittles who brought him to Scotland, using him as the centre of their Super Bowl advert.

They took Lynch to Houston, a little town in Renfrewshire, so he could speak to the locals about the big event taking place at Houston’s NRG Stadium in the US on Sunday when the New England Patriots face the Atlanta Falcons.

What he got up to looked like a lot of fun:
