Shaq went undercover as a Lyft driver, and people really didn't recognise him

Shaquille O’Neal is apparently less noticeable than we realised all these years.

The NBA legend went undercover as a Lyft driver in a video for the car service. He drives around Atlanta, donning different names, disguises (beret, beard), occupations (bracelet making), and accents (including a hilarious Jamaican).

A lot fewer people recognise him than probably should, given that he’s a seven-foot giant who looks a lot like Shaq.

He’s not the best as masking himself. He brings up basketball with his rides and even shows one woman how to practice free throws. He tells another rider his favourite movie is “Kazaam.”

“I want to play ball, but I run funny,” he feigns at one point. “My pants get stuck in my butt.”

In the end, he rips off his various disguises and outs hismelf. A couple riders suspected it, but they freak out all the same.

Lyft has done other “undercover” videos, but this is by far the best. Watch below.
