Shaquille O'Neal Pretends To Be A Statue In Harvard Square (VIDEO)

Boston Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal showed up at Harvard Square on Thursday and pretended to be a statue for an hour. Before arriving, O'Neal tweeted that he was on his way to Harvard Square, which resulted in a large crowd showing up to see him.

"The idea of the Shaq statue originated from watching TV one day. I was watching the royal British guards," O'Neal explained. "If you know anything about those guys they have tremendous discipline. The other idea is I always wanted to tell people I went to Harvard."
