You’d think that the infamous NFL player nicknamed Beast Mode would be ok with the gory finishing moves of Mortal Kombat. He’s not. At all. Marshawn Lynch isn’t down with seeing people’s intestines.
In Conan O’Brien’s latest Clueless Gamer segment, he pits Seahawks running back Lynch against Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots in a few rounds of Mortal Kombat X. The segment is hilarious but it’s got what appears a few glaring bits of outright fakery, namely the fact that it’s highly unlikely that Beast Mode and Gronk are pulling off the inputs required to trigger MKX‘s blood-soaked match finishers.
It’s also funny that Lynch — whose terse relationship with the media and NFL management has become one of the most bizarre storylines of the past season — talks up a storm during the clip. If Seattle winds up winning the Super Bowl, Nintendo better get him to do some Mario Kart promos real quick.
