Wavves And Trash Talk Interview Shaquille O’Neal

Last week Shaquille O’Neal announced plans for a sequel to his widely panned cult classic 1994 video game, Shaq Fu, funded in part through Indiegogo. The goal behind Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is ostensibly to redeem the legacy of the original, known for being one of the worst games ever. (Indiegogo tagline: “Shaq Fu returns and this time we won’t FU it up!”) The original Shaq Fu does have its devotees, though, and apparently Wavves’ Nathan Williams and Trash Talk’s Garrett Stevenson are among them. So Interview put the two young punks on the phone with Shaq to discuss this reboot. The musicians are pretty stoked, and Shaq is in PR mode the whole time, but it’s a fun read, and you can read it here.
