Madden 25′s August 27th release is right around the corner. EA Sports has released a new Madden commercial starring Houston Texans running back Arian Foster and Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.
The setting of the commercial is the 1980′s when Marshawn Lynch and Arian Foster begin a bitter feud playing Madden for the first time. They decided to have sons that they’ll train to become elite NFL running backs to play against one another in the future Madden games.
It shows the parents training the kids by having them run while pulling a car, avoiding bears and doing the tire drill…. while the tires are on fire. Which Marshawn Lynch Sr (played by junior) calls “that beast mode.”
“Today the sons have become the offensive threats of their fathers’ dreams. Spinning and juking their way to Madden domination,” the narrator says. “A season 25 years in the making.”
It is a fairly funny and entertaining commerical that ends with the fathers arguing about which son learned form which son.
EA Sports posted this new commercial to their YouTube page with the following description:
The truth behind Arian Foster and Marshawn Lynch’s path to becoming elite NFL running backs is finally revealed. Along with the origin of “Beast Mode.”
