"Two nights ago, I flew to Phoenix to challenge the New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski and the Seattle Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch to play the not yet released fighting game, Mortal Kombat X," O'Brien said on his late-night show. "It was a very exciting night. Everyone wondering what would happen, who would win and really wondering: would Marshawn Lynch actually speak? Would he say a single word?"
Why yes, Conan, the notoriously silent Lynch did speak a single word. He spoke many, actually, and the one-liners produced by Lynch, Gronkowski and O'Brien himself are almost as hilarious as their physical reactions to the crazy violent video game they are playing. Watch the video and then check out our picks for most hilarious moments from the clip.
Lynch was just describing his technique, but of course, O'Brien's dirty mind interpreted the strategy in a completely different way. "That's lookin' dirty. All right, stop it," O'Brien said, which, of course, got a hilarious reaction.
Today, Gronkowski's not taking orders from Bill Belichick. It's all about the creepy little man on his Mortal Kombat character's back.
We think it's adorable to see two rivals engage in lighthearted pleasantries and bonding over Buffalo, but O'Brien is disturbed.
Sometimes, in Mortal Kombat, you gotta get dirty. Lynch admits he's in it to win it.
Lynch relishes all action-filled moments, in football and in gaming.
Lynch can handle bone-crushing tackles, but he draws the line at gore. He's out.
Once Lynch settled down and returned to the game, O'Brien revealed his surprising reaction to the violence and Lynch wasn't having it. Gronkowski looks equally disturbed.
It's no wonder Lynch is creeped out by Mortal Kombat. He's more of a Mario Kart fan and driving is his fave.
As the guys gear up for the next round of battle, Gronkowski ponders what their next characters should be. The level of concentration is inspiring.
As he starts to get into the game, we're starting to think Lynch might be a Mortal Kombat believer after all.
Gronk and the guys are horrified at some more graphic violence in the game. Even football players feel feelings.
And it's a good thing, because judging by the solid 55 seconds these guys spent talking about and grabbing their own junk, they thoroughly enjoy the activity.
