Marshawn Lynch has found a way to offset his fines for refusing to talk with the media. Lynch is featured in a commercial where he does not have to speak, although he does have to open his mouth.
In this new Pepsi ad, Lynch lip-synches the script while wearing a fur hat and drinking a soda in a locker room. Comedian Andrée Vermeulen lends her voice to Lynch's mouth.
"Beast Mode" finally talks at the end of the ad, after pretending to guzzle some Pepsi and saying, "Speech Mode, boss."
Marshawn Lynch is just there so he gets paid. He used his catchphrase "I'm just here so I don't get fined" so many times at Super Bowl media day that he applied for a trademark on it.
