A random conversation about something “he smashes” sparked chatter on Twitter after Johnson came up with a surprising answer.
“I don’t think I smash anything. You know what I smash? Trix,” Johnson said and Shaq immediately reacted. “I once ate an entire box of Trix after a show.”
As noted by popculture.com, fans took to social media to note O’Neal’s bewilderment as he processed the statement.
“My guy Ernie has no idea what he just said,” one Twitter user wrote. Others pointed out that Johnson doesn’t know the term trix(tricks) means something entirely different on the streets.
According to Urban Dictionary, a “trick” is basically a prostitute. The term is also used to reference the person paying for sex.
“Dude I’ve watched this video like 200x and it’s still funny. Shaq’s face and the way he says “You know what I smash?” Kills me every time,” said another Twitter user of Shaq’s reaction to Johnson’s statement. Peep the clip below.

In related news, during last week’s pregame show for NBA on TNT, O’Neal revealed he lost a bet to Dwyane Wade and as a result, he was forced to let his hairline grow out.
“Let’s just get it out of the way America. I had a bet against one of my good friends D. Wade,” O’Neal said, explaining that he was betting on the Milwaukee Bucks defeating the Miami Heat on Monday night.
“I said Milwaukee was going to win by 20 and the Heat won,” O’Neal said, and PEOPLE notes that “Wade smiled proudly from the other side of the table.”
“I said so what do you want me to do? Pay you? He said, ‘Nah, you have to let your hairline grow out. We want to see your hairline looking like Kenny Smith,’” O’Neal said Wade told him of the former Houston Rockets star.
