ATLANTA (AP) – You can add Lyft driver to Shaquille O’Neal’s post-retirement resume.

The ride-hailing service has recruited the former NBA big man to go undercover as a Lyft driver in Atlanta for a YouTube video the company published Wednesday.

The video shows O’Neal going by names such as Charles, Peter and Goose. He talks, raps and sings with riders while disguised in different outfits and wigs. They share some laughs at the end of the nearly four-minute clip after learning O’Neal’s true identity.

Commenting on his acting skills, O’Neal says he’s come a long way since starring as a genie in “Kazaam.” The 1996 box office flop has earned a rating of 6 percent among critics on the rating-aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes.
