Behind The Scenes: Shaq & Tyga Shoot “Shaqnosis”

Published

If you haven’t already heard, former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal has just re-released his infamous Shaqnosis sneaker.

The Reebok shoe was originally released in 1995 while O’Neal played for the Orlando Magic, and now he and Reebok are bringing the sneaker back exclusively at Footlocker.

HipHollywood caught up with O’Neal, now retired, on set for a special commercial for the Shaqnosis sneaker, where he also enlisted the help of rap star and fellow Reebok spokesman Tyga.

“When I released the shoe in 95/96 I was really out there”, said Shaq, now 40.  “I’m just glad the sneaker heads respect that, they like the way it looks, they way it feels and they’re bringing it back.”

In the new commercial, Shaq and Tyga are both enjoying themselves at a posh Hollywood party, when Tyga notices Shaq in his Shaqnosis sneakers and has to be lifted up to ask the giant where he can find them.

“I love his music and he did me a solid for one of my son’s birthdays”, revealed Shaq on why he wanted to work with Tyga. “So when Reebok asked me to do a commercial with Tyga I was like sure. He’s a friend of mine, he’s smart, and the young kids are also wearing his stuff at Reebok also.”

The Shaqnosis is available now in Footlocker stores and on Footlocker.com. Can you dig it?

Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.

For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
