Shaquille O’Neal is the king of product endorsements. One company he might be most notably recognized for is Icy Hot.
In a recent interview with the “John Kincade Show” on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly, Shaq opened up about what sparked his deal with the pain reliever brand.
Shaq told Kincade that he had a thigh bruise and so during a game, the Lakers’ team trainer put Icy Hot on his thighs. But after a few minutes, things went south for the big man.
“My boys started getting real hot,” Shaq explained in the interview. “And then I’m running and I’m like okay my boys are tingling and getting very, very hot right now.”
Shaq eventually had to call a timeout and told the trainer, “hey man, my balls are on fire.”
The story gets funnier, and includes Shaq discovering a shower does not help the situation. It’s worth hearing from Shaq himself. Take a listen.
