Look, we all know that Shaquille O’Neal is a big dude. That’s not new information.
But there’s a huge difference (no pun intended) between knowing someone is larger than average and actually seeing the evidence with your own eyes.
Without further ado, here are 20 pictures that show Shaq making everyday items (and people!) look like toys.
Here Shaq is, making a full-sized bottle of water look like one of those tiny bottles of booze you get on an airport. We can only imagine how much water Shaq has to drink to keep his 7-foot-1-inch frame hydrated.
Of course, he doesn’t just drink water. Here he is with a soda can. He could easily grip that can with two fingers, and probably down it in one gulp.
Fun Shaq Fact: He was one of the original investors of VitaminWater. He was also given the opportunity to invest in Starbucks but declined because he doesn’t drink coffee.
(P.S. His unorthodox look here is due to the fact that he’s in costume for Grown-Ups 2.)
That right there is Shaq’s World Championship ring.
Or a World Championship bracelet, if you’re a non-Shaq-sized human.
Making Shaq play golf with standard size golf clubs hardly seems fair.
Look how far he has to bend over just to hold it on the ground!
Shaq is good friends with actor Kevin Hart. Although looking at this picture, it’s a little difficult to wrap your head around the fact that they’re two members of the same species.
Here’s another shot of these two friends…
Ah yes, true friendship is being able to pick up your bestie and throw him over your shoulder as if they’re some kind of living, breathing, tax-paying doll.
Shaq has made several generous donations to worthy causes. In the past, he’s donated $1 million to the Boys and Girls Club of America.
And as you can see in this picture, he also donated his suit jacket for Jimmy Kimmel to use as a tent.
Honestly, there’s really not a lot we can say about this particular picture that will further drill home just how massive of a man Shaquille O’Neal is. His leg is taller than that entire man. Enough said.
From 2010 to 2012, Shaq dated Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander. Pictures of the two of them often go viral because of their extreme size difference.
Here’s a photo of Shaq with actor Verne Troyer, who is 2’8″.
Once again: Same species. Pretty mindblowing, right?
Shaq wears a size 23 shoe. (That grey shoe is a size 11 for comparison.)
You know what they say about guys with big feet? They wear really big shoes.
Is this a picture of John Cena doing his “you can’t see me” hand gesture and Shaq doing a peace sign, OR of the two men declaring how many Krispy Kreme donuts they just ate? We’ll probably never know.
You know what they call that animal in Shaq’s arms?
A Giant Panda. That’s its literal name. Do you really need further evidence of the fact that Shaq is a giant?
Even in high-heeled boots, Gymnastics star Simone Biles is only at about elbow height on Shaq. Pretty incredible, right?
Shaquille O’Neal makes Captain America look like Steve Rogers.
Someone sign him up with the Avengers, STAT.
The best part of this picture is without a doubt the fact that Arnold is so clearly starstruck. It’s not often the guy hangs out with someone so much bigger than him.
Look at the size of his hands on the basketball!
He’s using two hands here just as a formality.
This is a picture of Shaq standing next to a replica of Robert Wadlow, who at 8’11” is the tallest man to have ever lived.
Finally, someone for Shaq to look up to.
OK, this one’s a little tricky.
If you look closely, you can see Shaq in this photo of a mariachi band. Did you spot him?
Now, keep all of the other photos in this list in mind and consider the fact that Yao Ming is even taller than Shaq.
