The Wonders of Shaq’s Scrabble Board
- Updated: April 7, 2009
Yet despite seeing and embracing the big man’s performance countless times, I only recently saw the “longer” version that includes a quick shot of the Scrabble board. Perhaps I’m late to the party. The board is at once inspiring and slightly problematic. First, the good. We get a sneak peek at the other Shaq-creations in this Shaqglorious edition of the commercial including:
- SHAQATTACK (obviously)
- SHAQALICI (one can only assume the plural of shaqalicious? if one could make plurals of adjectives)
- SHAQESQUE (brilliant)
- SHAQFU (a given)
- SHAQZILSA (starting to take creative latitude a bit too far here, Mr. O’Neal…we would have given you SHAQZILLA)
- SHAQTASTIC (indeed)
For those keeping track at home, that’s seven Q’s. Damn right, I’d be wondering how we got that many too. Here’s what bothers me about it, though. First off, where is he going to put “Shaqtus.” There’s simply not even enough room on the board. Not to mention eight Q’s is simply preposterous. Secondly, am I missing something on the top right of the board? Is K-I-S a word? If not, this whole Scrabble board is a complete travishammockery.
Maybe this is all old news to some of you Internets hounds. If not, please share your thoughts and insight on what was a startling new development to me…and enjoy this gem again in all its splendor.
