Marshawn Lynch Narrating The Crazy Iguana Chase from ‘Planet Earth II’ Is Pure Perfection
This epic mash-up of the escaping lizard and Lynch’s “Beast Quake” run is a must-see.
Last month the BBC released a clip from Planet Earth II that shows just how thrilling nature can be. The viral footage of an intrepid iguana escaping the clutches of a snake mob in the Galapagos is incredible on its own, but thanks to one savvy Redditor it’s now even better.
The brilliant /u/TheCoachTaylor synced up the iguana’s improbable escape with audio of Marshawn Lynch talking about his famous “Beast Quake” run. That was the 67-yard touchdown run he reeled off in the 2011 NFC Wild Card against the Saints.
In what might be the greatest run in NFL history, Lynch discarded defenders like they were gnats as the crowd in Seattle got so loud that a nearby seismograph registered a small tremor at the stadium.
Here’s the iguana mash-up with the original video of Lynch’s run below.
If you dig that iguana footage, you’re going to want to check out Planet Earth II in its entirety.
It came out last month and this extended trailer is a taste of how much it will blow your mind.
