Antonio Brown hooked up with awesome Skittles vending machine (vid)


Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is a big fan of Skittles and as a reward for his longtime love for the candy he is now the proud owner of a vending machine stocked exclusively with the sweet treat.

Brown took to social media on Tuesday to showcase the new addition to his home. The vending machine can hold up to 125 pounds of Skittles and the unit features his tagline, “Business is Booming,” along with his signature.

Beyond the Twitter posts featuring a beaming Brown posing alongside and dancing next to the Skittles vending machine, the Steelers wide receiver also posted video to Instagram to document how the machine works.

Brown’s relationship with Skittles goes back much further than this week’s developments. Last season, he showcased some Skittles gloves he received as a gift from the candy maker.

Brown is also the proud owner of a Skittles-themed jacket.

Taste the Rainbow, indeed. Somewhere, Skittles aficionado and pitchman Marshawn Lynch nods his approval … right before having himself some Skittles, too, probably.
