Shaquille O’Neal Creates New ‘Gorilla Dab’ Dance Based On Zoo Experience

Shaquille O’Neal is so big, so boisterous and so recognizable that even gorillas at the zoo stare at the 15-time NBA All-Star and marvel.

O’Neal revealed such during TNT’s NBA playoffs coverage Tuesday night while discussing a new dance craze he started on social media. Shaq, using his zoo trips as inspiration, created a dance called the “Gorilla Dab,” which he even busted out on live television for his TNT co-hosts.

Shaq wasn’t the only one who got down Tuesday night after the Atlanta Hawks defeated the Boston Celtics. Charles Barkley was feeling the beat, too, so he joined in the fun.

Truth be told, The Round Mound of Rebound could use some work to keep up with the dance move’s 7-foot-1 creator.
