Watch Shaq Get DJ Lessons Ahead of TomorrowWorld Set

The Chainsmokers teach “DJ Diesel” how to rock a crowd in funny new video

Later this month, Shaquille O’Neal will turn up the TomorrowWorld audience as he performs under the name DJ Diesel. In a new clip, EDM duo the Chainsmokers — best known for their single “Selfie” — have a few tips for the NBA player, actor, TV personality and platinum rapper.

After breaking into Shaq’s home, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, who will also perform at the festival, start the athlete’s day by informing him of the proper festival attire: a CamelBak backpack, glowsticks, neon accessories and vintage jerseys. When they try to teach him how to properly move behind the DJ booth, Shaq — which stands for “Sexy Handsome All the Qualities” — shows off his dancing skills. Towards the end, Shaq previews his DJ skills a bit, performing an example of his trap-heavy set in a Halloween mask beneath multi-colored lights.

TomorrowWorld takes place in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia from September 25th through September 27th and will feature sets by Afrojack, Tiesto, Bassnectar, Steve Angello, and DJ Snake. After showing off his skills in a Las Vegas club last year, Shaq gave a taste of DJ Diesel’s style in an exclusive, hour-long mix for the festival in July.
