UFO’s: Believe in them or not? Sure, we all love watching “Ancient Aliens,” but when it comes right down to it, do you really believe in visitors from outer space? Well, on a recent edition of the Jimmy Kimmel late-night TV show, Shaq admitted he’s totally on board with the entire UFO-being-real idea. Beam us up!
A recent edition of the TV news magazine show 60 Minutes” had a full report on UFO’s – or as the U.S. government calls them – UAP (which stands for Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon). On his show later that week, Kimmel talked with his audience about the report and other sightings, and said he was fascinated by what he saw.
That same night, one of Kimmel’s guests was our man Shaq. Interviewing O’Neal, Kimmel had one of the greatest intro lines ever: ‘As someone physically closer to outer space than the rest of us, what’s your take on what’s going on?’
If you saw the show, you saw how Kimmel talked a LOT about UAPs throughout the program, from his opening monologue and carrying it over to his interviews with guests.
Shaq talked about his own “close encounter,” saying he saw something very strange in the night sky while out on a date as a younger man.
At first, Shaq joked about his experience with an alien – a creature that took the form of Charles Barkley, Still, O’Neal got a lot more serious moments later. “You know what’s crazy? I never told anybody this story,” O’Neal said. “In 1997, me and one of my good friends, Chris Flores, we were on a double date. We were coming from Hollywood Video in Madera, California. Right when we passed the fairground by this big open lot, I could have swore I saw a flying saucer come down, with all the lights, and it was spinning, and it just (makes sound). And it took off. Everything happened in less than five seconds, and we all looked at each other and was like (looks from side to side). I know that it was a UFO. I don’t care what anybody says.”
Needless to say, Kimmel and the rest of the audience were quite surprised. He asked Shaq if he ever told anyone about the incident.
“No, you’re the first person I told because I don’t want people thinking I’m crazy, but since I know you’re crazy and you believe in UFOs, it’s time to let the world know that Shaq believes in UFOs.”
