Yes, you did see Shaq at ACL -- here's why

NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal reared his head at the 2018 Austin City Limits Music Festival to shoot a video with American Express and ACL headliner Travis Scott.

AUSTIN — The rumors are true -- Shaq definitely did show up to ACL.

Through a partnership with one of the Austin City Limits Music Festival's 2018 business partners, American Express, NBA legend and AmEx ambassador Shaquille O'Neal made an appearance to shoot a video feature with headlining rapper Travis Scott along with the NBA's and TNT's American Express Road Show.

The video will air during the NBA on TNT’s opening night coverage on Tuesday. The segment will follow O’Neal and fellow NBA legend Baron Davis as they visit The American Express Experience and Card Member Club at ACL before heading to the American Express Stage to meet and watch ACL headliner Travis Scott.

O'Neal met with KVUE to talk about the partnership, his love for music, and the upcoming NBA season. Behind the scenes at the American Express Experience and Card Member Club, O'Neal talked about his day at the festival, how he planned to challenge Travis Scott to a game of HORSE on a basketball court backstage, and how he just caught artist Janelle Monae's performance and fell in love.

Find out who won that HORSE game below!

O'Neal wrapped up the day -- and the entire ACL Music Festival -- by hopping on stage with Travis Scott during "Carousel."
