The video was shot in the Scottish town of Paisley, where Lynch was reportedly filming a segment to promote the upcoming Super Bowl. The game will be played in Houston, and he was spotted at a shop called Houston Kiltmakers, raising the intriguing possibility that we’ll see “Beast Mode” in a kilt.
He was also spotted with a basket on the front of his bike bearing the logo of his favorite candy, Skittles. True to the media-averse form Lynch showed in his playing days, he appeared unhappy at being filmed.
“He must have been filming something with the kilt shop, but he was riding about on the BMX outside and then I filmed him doing the wheelie,” the man who shot the video, Robert Hampson, told The Sun. “I’m a big fan of the National Football League, and it’s crazy that a player like him was in Paisley.
“He wasn’t too happy with people filming him, though.”
While touring the pyramids, Lynch joked about “ghost-riding” a camel, referring to the practice of putting a car in neutral and then dancing alongside or on top of it. He shows how it’s done in an upcoming episode of the Discovery show “Diesel Brothers,” his latest TV gig following appearances on “Running Wild With Bear Grylls” (where one of his dreadlocks was used to start a campfire) and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
