Shaq’s got jokes.

The NBA legend paid a visit to a Home Depot this week, soon after offering advice to the “Home Depot Girl,” who went viral last week for apparently being too pretty to work at the home renovation store.

Shaq went to the Home Depot to shoot the video for his new song, which he shared on Instagram. The visual starts with a Home Depot employee saying, “She’s in the back,” seemingly in reference to the “Home Depot Girl.” Shaq then raps about his beginnings and basketball career. Interspersed are shots of him taking photos with customers and employees—and Shaq also opens up about Kobe Bryant’s death.

The same employee from the beginning of the video reappears to ask Shaq, “Did you find her?” to which Shaq responds, “No I didn’t.”

“Just laugh, people, and have a wonderful day,” Shaq captioned his post. Apparently, while in the store, he also bought a new washer and dryer for a family.

Earlier this week, the “Home Depot Girl,” Ariana Cossie came under fire when people thought she was shading sex workers. Shaq later DM’d her to encourage her, writing, “Don’t let them people [sic] bother you.” He continued, “Don’t read the comments stuff like that will drive u crazy.” At the end, he quipped, “Have a great day tell all your boyfriends i said hello lol.”

“When Shaq text you know you doing something right okay!” she commented, alongside a screenshot of their conversation on her Instagram Story.
