Shaquille O'Neal Conducts The Boston Pops Orchestra (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Shaquille O'Neal put on a tuxedo and conducted the Boston Pops Orchestra at the Symphony Hall on Monday night.

"[Celtics PR director Heather Walker] asked me if I wanted to conduct the orchestra," O'Neal said. "I was like, 'Seriously, like a real orchestra?'"

The Celtics center also said he has a new respect for conductors because his arms were "shot" after rehearsal.

In the video, O'Neal led the Pops in "Sleigh Ride" and Queen's "We Are the Champions." Scroll down to watch the video.
