Watch Shaq Completely Fool These Lyft Passengers

There are some celebrity sightings that are met with incredulity: Is that really that one guy from that one thing? However, there is absolutely no mistaking Shaquille O’Neal, especially when he’s your Lyft driver.
OK, maybe it’s possible to find the scant few people in this world who have apparently never seen the former NBA star play, which is apparently what Lyft accomplished when it featured Shaq in its latest “Undercover Lyft” video.
Join us in screaming at strangers who can’t hear us as we question how these people don’t recognize a man who used to break backboards for a living.
It’s as if Lyft has a magical power to make the most renowned a mere anonymous driver taking you on your latest journey. We will forgive you, however, if you are, say, in Atlanta from Brazil.
And as you know from the video, it’s that same man from Brazil who cracks the case of the very talkative Lyft driver, wondering if he is indeed in the car with Shaquille O’Neal.
As it turns out, everyone recognizes the TNT NBA analyst. It just so happens that those awful disguises worked rather well.
If you liked this kind of video, you’re in luck because Lyft has featured the likes of Richard Sherman, Danica Patrick, Jerry Rice and Kris Bryant in this series.
Quite possibly Lyft hasn’t had someone as recognizable as this seven-footer with an iconic voice.
We will be on our guard, Lyft. Just in case you want to throw a Michael Jordan or Charles Barkley our way.
