See Shaq Play H-O-R-S-E

shaq vitaminwater jockey
Today will be the biggest game of the season...For the NFL, with Superbowl 42 coming atcha, featuring the dominant 18-0 Patriots against a not so bad Giants squad which looked close to beating New England weeks ago. Should make for an interesting story today. It will either be the happy ending to a storybook season, or the Giants will play spoilers with one of the bigger upsets in sports.

The NBA will be a part of the Superbowl commercials today, more specifically Miami Heat star, Shaq. Shaq decided he wanted to have his own advertisement for Vitaminwater "Power-C". Basically he said if 50 Cent has a commercial why doesn't Shaq? Shaq is a regular imbiber of the drink so he will star in a commercial featuring his prowess for different sports. The ad will feature Shaq as a jockey but also ballin'. According to AOL sports, the concept was born when Shaq learned the president of Glaceau was one of the top 50 jockey owners in the country. So naturally an idea was born for Shaq to play jockey and also show off his bball skills. Shaq noted:

"I grew up in Texas, so i'm no stranger to riding horses,” said Shaquille O’Neal. "But I've always wanted to try being a jockey in an actual horse race - so vitaminwater and I decided to give it a try."

Check out funny outtakes from the 60 second ad here. The ad itself will air at the start of the third quarter of Sunday's game.
