Shaq, Kazaam

Shaquille O'Neal dressed in a genie outfit torpedoing himself out of a flaming boom box might be the best thing he's ever done—aside from his rap album Shaq Diesel going platinum.

It's been 19 years since Kazaam was released, and we're still talking about it. Why? Because everyone wants their wishes to be granted by a 6,000-year-old 7'1" turban-wearing rhyming magical man.

Watch this clip as Shaq scares the s--t outta these kids, then we'll all be on the same page.

"If you wanna be number one, I'm sorry boy that's been done. But if you've got the itches for a sack of riches, don't matter how avaricious, I'm the man that can grant your wishes."  OK, Shaq, show us what you can do…

 1. Please tell Beyoncé it would be a really good idea for her and Jay-Z to always answer every question E! News ever asks.

2. Can you and Taylor Swift record a rap song about canoeing?

3. Videotape Kim Kardashian assembling a piece of IKEA furniture.

 Thank you, Kazaam!

Speaking of throwbacks, watch Paul Rudd in 1995:
