Shaquille O'Neal Vs. Justin Bieber and Jimmy Kimmel: The Shaq of all trades

Posted on

Shaquille O’Neal can do anything. Badly. But give him credit for sharing his mediocrity with the rest of the world. That’s the concept behind Shaq Vs, his show where he takes on celebrities in their chosen field. Last night, he challenged Jimmy Kimmel to a monologue contest and took the stage with Justin Bieber. Shaq admitted that he always wanted to be like Fame‘s Leroy, and he looked half-decent freestyling on the dance floor.

He also engaged in a battle of the monologues with Jimmy Kimmel, who didn’t pull any punches with the big guy. Shaq was simply too big a target: “Shaq is a terrible actor,” Kimmel deadpanned. “Though I did like him in Precious.” Followed by, “Fox is giving Shaq a show after Glee. It’s called Ug-Glee.”

Still, Shaq is the best at what he does, which only he knows how to fully describe: “I’m gonna do what I do. Cuz that’s what I like to do — when I’m doing it.” Okay then.

Did you watch the show? How many World’s Best Dad t-shirts and coffee mugs do you think Shaq owns?
