Marshawn Lynch’s new chocolate bars will be made in Tukwila

Marshawn Lynch has been busy in retirement. And, apparently, he’s looking to Willy Wonka as a role model for his next career.

Lynch tweeted a video Tuesday night that is apparently promoting new Beast Mode candy bars. The video shows Lynch trying to wrangle some truffles in a chocolate factory. The mission, make sure no truffles get by and that they all get into a box. Instead, they end up on the floor and in one of his Beast Mode caps.

“I think we just gonna work a little bit of overtime, Ok?” Lynch says in the video.

Lynch also took his sweet act to TBS with his good friend Conan O’Brien. Besides speaking his mind on Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem demonstration, Lynch also hid a golden ticket to surprise one of the audience members. The prize was a tour of the Seattle chocolate factory where the candy bars are made with Beast Wonka himself. The Seattle Chocolate Company is collaborating with Lynch on the venture and the tour will take place at the company’s factory in Tukwila, according to marketing manager Ayla Janukajtis.

The gag ends with both Lynch and Conan wearing some very appropriate hats.
