  • Marshawn Lynch leaps into a tank full of Skittles on Conan's show

    Marshawn Lynch loves Skittles. He loves diving into the end zone and grabbing himself while doing so. Leave it to Conan O'Brien, then, to combine these two great loves into 15 seconds of genius.

    So much to love about this video:

    • Lynch does his, uh, equipment adjustment grab while he's in the air.

    • Conan is somehow able to get more out of Marshawn Lynch than the entire NFL media. (Remember when they played Mortal Kombat together?)

    • How long did it take interns to open all the Skittles packs, and what did they do with them when the sketch was done?

    • If Pete Carroll had written this sketch, he'd have called for Conan to pass.

    The offseason, baby!
