Shaquille O’Neal proved that Teyana Taylor isn’t the only one who knows how to dance. The former basketball player posted a video on his Instagram account Sunday (September 11) showing him performing Taylor’s famous dance from Kanye West’s music video “Fade.”
O’Neal begins by playing the song on his phone, looking over his shoulder coyly at the camera. He pops and twerks in his seat, doing his best imitation of Taylor. The 44-year-old looks fit and trim in his underwear and a tank top as he stands up, his head exceeding the camera’s frame, and continues winding and grinding.
He ends by crawling toward the camera and bursting into laughter. Not even O’Neal can take himself—or this—seriously. “Feeling faded #remixchallenge can anyone beat this,” he wrote on Instagram, apparently looking to create a new kind of dance battle. Well, the gauntlet has surely been laid down.
