He’s been called the Big Cactus. He’s been known as the Big Aristotle. But in a Lyft car somewhere in Atlanta recently, Shaquille O’Neal went by Pierre, Gus and the Big Glowstache.
Singing the praises of the 1996 movie "Kazaam" -- and the notes of a high-pitched solo -- Shaq got in the driver’s seat and (supposedly) fooled a series of riders into thinking he wasn’t that famous 7-foot-1 basketball player, but rather an unknown car service driver with a passion for designing bracelets and reggae music.
Shaq was taking part in “Undercover Lyft,” a made-for-millenials prank series produced by Lyft in which costumed athletes (like Richard Sherman and Danica Patrick) take the wheel with passengers -- and secret cameras -- in tow.
We’re not sure what's more unbelievable: that Shaq's seven-foot frame didn’t give him away or that he took on the identity of the “greatest free-throw coach of all time."
Shaq was born for this gag.
