Blind Folded People Pitch Inventions To Shaq


– Hi, I’m Shaquille O’Neal. I’m here at Buzzfeed today,
listening for new inventions. Help me, help you. I like, I invest. I invest, win, win for everybody (laughs). But the catch is, they don’t know that they are going to be pitching to me. (intense music) Welcome to Shaq Tank. – (screams) Oh, Shaq! (laughs) Yo, what’s up? – [Shaq] (laughs) How are you? – I’m good, man. So question for you. – No questions, welcome to Shaq Tank. You have 30 seconds to pitch your idea. – All right. – I like it, I invest. I don’t like it, go back to work. – Well, in stressful
situations like these, you can get a little
sweaty under pressure. So my product is called Pit Stop. It’s like shoulder blade for your pits. So why don’t we stop
the sweat with Pit Stop? It’s made out of bamboo fabric, which is made from pulp of bamboo. It’s breathable, it’s moisture wicking. And it’s eco-friendly. So that way you can stop
sweating and start living. Pit stop. (gentle music) – I like it.
– Yeah? – I really do. – So we got a deal?
– Got a deal. I’ll give you $100 for 92% of the company. (lighthearted music) – Do we negotiate, is that part of this? – No. Take the deal or you can walk. $100.
– $100? – Crisp, straight from the Chase bank. – And you’ll buy all the bamboo? – I know some bamboo distributors. – Okay. – And I’ll let you have
minimal, no creative control. So shake my hand and say, “Deal”. – I’ll see you in the factory. – Yes, we will. – It was a pleasure, Shaq. – What’s up (laughs)? – All right, you got 30 seconds, let’s go. – All right, 30 seconds, that’s it? – 30 seconds. – Okay, see this regular tape? This is the thing of the past. What you want is edible tape, okay? Edible tape. Ever eaten a burrito and
it starts falling out, and you’re like, “Oh, this burrito sucks.” Have you experienced that?
– Mm-hmm. – Okay, well, my tape will tape that burrito back up for you. And then, you can eat it
like a normal burrito again. – Got a name for this product? – Yeah, it’s called Tasty Tape, I just made that up. – Tasty Tape? – [Lauren] So that was pretty good of me. – [Shaq] Impressive. – Okay cool, any questions for my product? – I need you to do me a favor. – Yeah? – Never tell anybody that story again. FDA will never approve that. – It’s gonna be completely organic. – Okay, imagine you eat the tape, and it tapes your throat closed. – It will like dissolve– – (coughs) No. – It’s kid-friendly. – You want kids to eat tape? – Kids eat glue, they can eat tape. – I would like to say that I’m out. – That’s a bummer. – Please exit the Shaq Tank. – Okay, bye, Shaq. – Thank you. – Oh, my God, I’m so nervous. (Essence screams)
(Shaq and crew laugh) (laughs) Oh, my God, Shaq! Oh, my God, this is crazy! – Welcome to Shaq Tank. You have a minute and 45
seconds to pitch your idea. – So my idea is called the Clap Backer. It’s an app that automates responses to inappropriate and
microaggressive comments because educating assholes is exhausting. – Did you say educating? – Assholes is exhausting. – I don’t know what
that means but continue. – So basically, often times, when you are like a
minority in a situation, you find yourself in
like very microaggressive situations.
– I understand your point. But at this point, I
will probably have to– – [Essence] No. – Pass. – Shaq.
– Good luck though. (gentle music) – Okay, thanks. – [Shaq] All right. – Glad I got to meet you. – Nice to see you too. (gentle music) Great app though, great idea. – Thank you. I should’ve touched your head first. It would’ve been like good luck. – You don’t need luck, you’re fabulous. – [Essence] Thank you. – All right. – Okay, oh, my God, hey! – How are you? – I had this weird feeling
it was gonna be you. – Oh, so you dreamed about me? – Maybe. – You have 32 seconds
to present your product. – Okay, so you’re walking
down the street, right? It starts raining, you
get your umbrella out. And then, oh, no, the wind is blowing. And now your thighs are wet. Lucky for you, there’s umbrellas
all the way down, okay? It’s basically an umbrella with a shower curtain stabled around it. The thighs don’t get wet. – You have a name for this product? – Yeah, Umbrellas All the Way Down. (gentle music) – I’d rather get wet
than use that product. – Fair enough. – That might be the second
worst product I heard today. (laughs) I’m not a mean guy. I wish you well. I think if you do some
more creative thinking and come back with a
prototype, I’d look at it. – Okay, sounds good. – I could just see somebody walking, tripping, fall into the street, getting ran over by a
bus, Final Destination VI. – Fair enough. – [Shaq] All right, thank you. – Thank you (laughs). Good to meet you. (laughs) Take care. – Good luck. – Oh, man (laughs). – Hello. – All right, you’re gonna love this. So are you familiar with ice cubes? – Yes, I am. – Great, so you’re gonna love this then. So, you’re a busy man. You got a lot of stuff going on. You got a lot of obligations
and stuff to go to. You don’t have time to heat up soup or heat up hot chocolate or whatever. Enter my idea, Heat Cubes, all right? Heat Cubes are basically
the opposite of ice cubes. They heat up your beverage,
your soup, your stew. Say it with me, Heat Cubes. – Heat Cubes. – [Dave] Heat Cubes, it
just rolls off the tongue. – Can I ask you a question though? – Yeah, bring it in. – How does the sun stay hot? – I can’t prove that, I’m not a scientist. – Okay, so how will the
Heat Cubes stay hot? – We hire some scientists with your money. I’m just thinking, I think
we have a bright future. You can be my soup
savior, my broth brother, and we can make Heat Cubes a thing. Heat Cubes. – I like it. I will give you $100
for 62% of your company. – I’ll take it, Heat Cubes. We can make Heat Cubes a thing. – Heat Cubes, me and you, baby. – Heat Cubes. – [Shaq] Great job. – [Dave] Heat Cubes. (laughs) – Saw some very interesting pitches today. Some made sense, some I
never wanna hear again. Some never should’ve been
brought to my attention. Remember, I like, I invest. I don’t like, bye, bye. (intense music)

    Shaq asked how does the sun stay hot? The sun is powered by the thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium, the same as an atomic bomb. … The sun has a diameter a 109 times that of the Earth! Even 92 million miles away, you probably expect it to be hotand bright. So I assume you ask how the sun stays so hot

    My Invention! Ok my invention is a spoon warmer or cooler. It is a spoon that worms up you beverage or soup and makes it warm. And if you beverage or soups is to hot you can cool it off. Your probably thinking oh there's something called a microwave. Well sometimes your in you car or truck and you don't have a microwave at all. Or when your microwaving your beverage or soup it might be to hot so you could just use the spoon to the temperature you want your beverage or soup to be.
