During the Super Bowl, the two superior athletes met up during the game. Olympic gold medal gymnast Simon Biles and basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neal partook in a photo-op that had the internet laughing. The seemingly normal pose turned into an optical illusion quickly due to their vast difference in height.



Biles, who is only 4’9 looks extremely small when standing next to a 7’1 Shaq.

Putting the two together made it look like someone photoshopped the basketball star to look as though he is a giant. If you look close enough in the photo, Biles is even wearing heels!

To be fair, anyone would look small while standing next to Shaq. However, it just so happened that when these two stars snapped this shot, the internet went crazy.



I feel an epic meme in the making.
