ATLANTA, June 1 (UPI) -- Shaquille O'Neal masqueraded as a Lyft driver for a new installment of the companies ongoing Undercover Lyft web series.
The 7'1" tall former Lakers player dressed in dramatic costumes and assumed a slew of funny identities to trick Lyft passengers into believing he was someone else in the video, released Wednesday.
O'Neal sported an extra-long beard and called himself "Goose" for one rider, while for another he wore a beret and bobbed wig, claiming he was a Frenchman named Pierre. In another instance, the famed basketball player and entertainer wore dreadlocks and swore his favorite film was Shaq's 1996 movie Kazaam.
In the end, many riders suspected they were sharing a ride with a major celebrity, while others were completely unaware.
"I kind of figured it out early on," one woman said, "when I saw your wig."
