Shaquille O'Neal Unleashes His Inner 'Maniac' With 'Flashdance' Routine On 'Lip Sync Battle'

There's just something about the 7-foot-1 basketball player dancing around in leg warmers.

We knew Shaquille O'Neal had moves on the basketball court, but it turns out he's a maniac on the dance floor too. 

In a preview clip for Thursday's episode of "Lip Sync Battle," the former NBA player channels his inner Jennifer Beals with a "Flashdance"-inspired routine. Dressed in an oversized grey sweatshirt, curly brown wig and leg warmers (necessary), the 7-foot-1 O'Neal busts a move to Michael Sembello's "Maniac." The only thing missing is the giant splash of water, but a big part of us thinks that's being saved for the actual show. Guess we'll have to tune in on Thursday to find out. 

In the meantime, check out the preview clip above. 

"Lip Sync Battle" airs on Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Spike
