Shaquille O’Neal Wants Your Funny Internet Video

From Lacey Rose at The Hollywood Reporter comes news of Shaquille O’Neal’s latest creative endeavor. It’s not a TNT sitcom; it’s not a rap album; and it’s not a feature film comedy.

Rather, Shaq has landed a ten-episode order from truTV for a Tosh.0-style clips show tentatively called Upload with Shaquille O’Neal. From Rose’s report:

“Shaquille O’Neal has such a great personality, and he really has a lot of fun with the format and the material in this new series,” said truTV EVP and COO Marc Juris. “This show is going to be a great fit with truTV’s comedic shows like Impractical Jokers and the upcoming Killer Karaoke.”

Shaq will goof on selected Internet videos and showcase his own occasional parodies with the help of host Gary Owen (Think Like a Man) and sidekick Godfrey (The Mr. Men Show). If this new offering from Vin Di Bona’s Fishbowl Worldwide Media is still looking for a catchphrase, we have a humble suggestion – ‘Can you digitize it?’
