Scripted or not (100% scripted), this video of one of the most recognizable people in the world pretending to be a Lyft driver is still pretty amusing, especially the scenes with the pretty girl with blue hair.
There’s a few decent jokes, like the one about the steam room bracelet (Inside the NBA fans might get it), dunking on Dikembe Mutombo and free throws but there’s no way you can convince me this was authentic. It falls in the middle of LeBron going undercover at Blaze Pizza and the tv show Undercover Boss. Any basketball fan between the ages of 10-50 would recognize him either as Shaq the player or Shaq from Inside The NBA. And kids, like my kids who are between 7 and 11 know who Shaq is just from his appearances in Adam Sandler films. And, people rarely ever sit in the front seat with Lyft or Uber or any car with a total stranger.
Anyways, enjoy the clip and if you are in the mood for more Shaq wearing a wig stuff, then check out this preview clip of the next episode of Lip Sync Battle featuring who else.
