Shaq Tries To Show Off His Abs,
But I Can't See Them From Space
let me explain
Big Show and Shaq have been going back and forth a lot about their possible-maybe-not-we'll-see-if-it-happens match at WrestleMania 33.
Mostly about how Show is in the best shape of his life and Shaq is not.
And I've been writing stories about it.
That last one includes Big Show saying that if Shaq were to take his shirt off, he'd look like Jabba The Hutt.
And I guess that was one step too far for Shaq, because he released his own abs video.
Its like ten seconds long. You can watch it at the top of the page.
But here is a still shot of the video.
First of all, vertical video. Ugh.
But also, that's as close as we can get.
I don't know about you, but I have no idea what I'm looking at from that far away.
Did he shoot that video from across the street?
It's like looking at a topographical map from space.
They could be abs, they could be drawn on with makeup, I don't know. It just seems shady. And I'm not talking about the specific spot in the gym where he's standing because the lighting is good.
For future reference, Shaq, this is how you do an abs reveal photo:
However, I will say that Show's earlier claim--that Shaq with his shirt off looks like Jabba The Hutt--has proven to be false.
He looks like Jabba The Hutt after three weeks with a personal trainer.
