Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is certainly not new to Xbox One commercials. We saw him back in 2016 during his retirement that ended up being just a hiatus, but now that he is playing actively, he’s still at it with Xbox One X and Madden NFL 18.

Today Microsoft released a new one in which Lynch is seen once more talking with his hand about vintage Madden games. After that, we get the usual “Play Best on Xbox One X” message, highlighting the game’s support for Microsoft’s new console.

This is actually not the first commercial of the series in which Lynch and his hand have this kind of funny conversations, and you can see one that lays the groundwork on the enhanced version, and another in which they talk about phone rights and fish guys from Tokyo. They’re a bit wacky but certainly funny.

You can check out the latest one from today below.  If you want to see more about the Xbox One X, you can enjoy a recent accolade trailer published by Microsoft. Another major game which receives an enhancement update for the new console was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, with very positive results.

The Xbox One X has been released worldwide on November 7th.
