Shaq is a big fella, for sure, but he's also not one to shy away from the challenge of fitting into a smaller vehicle. The Diesel has worked with Buick in the past, and now he's back—working a new spot that highlights the LaCrosse luxury sedan's space and fuel economy. 

“I don’t like commercials where they force stuff at you," says Shaq, "We just want to tell them how the car looks, and we want to let them know we’re trying to save them some of that gas money.” 

The 2013 LaCrosse is propelled by a 2.4-liter gas engine with an EPA-estimated 36 mpg on highway. O'Neal closes the commercial with these words: “Like my Mom said the day I was born, ‘Wow, that’s a lot more than I expected.’” A bit cheesy, but successful in reminding that Buick is, despite those lingering associations with crusty old dudes, driving into new territory.
