Shaquille O'Neal Goes Undercover, Fools People as Lyft Driver

Shaquille O'Neal (7'1" and 325-ish pounds) is one of the most recognizable players in NBA history, so you wouldn't expect him to be able to trick people with a simple disguise.

And yet, he did exactly that.

Shaq went undercover with Lyft to give passengers an unforgettable ride. Anyone who followed O'Neal throughout his playing career or has watched TNT's Inside the NBA knows the Los Angeles Lakers legend is all about having fun—so imagine having him as your driver.

In case you missed it, Shaq is just the latest athlete to team up with Lyft to catch unsuspecting passengers by surprise. Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant, NFL legend Jerry Rice, NASCAR driver Danica Patrick and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman have all done the gag.
