Oakland native Marshawn Lynch has been working on a movie about — and starring — himself, a biopic that will tell the story of his rise to NFL stardom. He may or may not have been working on that film when he parked his car on an Oakland street. That part doesn’t matter. What matters is that the car he parked was a Lamborghini, and he, or somebody, decided it would be a good idea to put velvet ropes on either side of it.

Bear in mind, this is a Lamborghini Aventador, a car that, according to, is worth close to $450,000. So it makes plenty of sense that Lynch doesn’t want some knucklehead backing into it. Although the way the ropes are set up makes it appear that Lynch’s main concern is to discourage people who might be crossing the street from passing in front of or behind the car. Or does he expect a line to form of folks who just want to hop into the Lamborghini for a little while, and at some point a bouncer will show up to decide who gets in?

Does he always cordon off his car like this? And does he keep the ropes and stanchions in the Lamborghini? I’m going to guess there’s not a ton of trunk space in that thing.

We can only hope that Lynch’s movie will answer all these pressing questions.
