Trying to mimic the dance moves from Kanye West’s “Fade” video sounds like an exercise in futility unless you’re a) actually Teyana Taylor, b) a professional dancer with a bawdy for the gods or c) Shaquille O’Neal. If you guessed C, then congratulations — your standardized test-taking method has finally paid off. The consolation prize is no shocker, but it’s funny AF: a video of Shaq recreating Taylor’s “Fade” choreography.
As a former NBA player-turned-spokesperson/rapper/police officer/undercover Lyft driver, O’Neal is the ultimate Jack-of-all-trades. His ability to imitate Taylor’s “Fade” moves down to the smouldering smize aimed directly at the camera and the jerky-meets-sexy body poppin’ choreo adds to his already lengthy resume in the best way. He even took a note from Taylor’s wardrobe by performing in his underwear (which provided a LOT more coverage, phew):
Werk it, Shaq. We almost enjoyed his performance more than Taylor’s, but odds are he thinks his version is best. The only way to settle this is a Shaq-Teyana dance-off, but sorry Shaq – our money’s on Taylor.
