Finally, the 'Planet Earth' Iguana Run as Narrated by Marshawn Lynch

Someone dubbed Marshawn Lynch describing his Beast Quake run against the saints to the Planet Earth Iguana escaping a bunch of snakes. It's perfect.

Finally, the two greatest runs in the history of terrestrial animals have come together. The Planet Earth footage of an iguana escaping dozens of would-be snake tacklers has been dubbed over with sound of Marshawn Lynch describing his "Beast Quake" run in the 2011 NFC Wild Card game.

This is a masterpiece of synchronization. The iguana casts a confident eye back toward the camera just as Lynch says, "…with 'Power', you're running straight downhill. You know where we're coming, and we know where y'all are gonna be lined up at. Now you just gotta stop it. I'm saying 'I'm better than you.'"

As the snakes approach, the iguana is clearly thinking "backside A gap," but for some reason it carried him to the front side. He bounced off the first snake and off he went. As the second wave of snakes envelopes him, the iguana says, "Uh-oh, it might be trouble." But then comes the stiff arm that wrecked Tracy Porter and the little guy stays on his feet. As he dives into the end zone he thinks, "What the hell just happened. Did this really just happen?"

The only way this video could have been improved is if the iguana had hit them snakes with a vintage Marshawn Lynch crotch grab celebration as he jumped onto that final rock.
