Celebrities, as we know, are desperate to hawk all kinds of BS. Over the years, we've seen such slices of ridiculous as Hulk Hogan's Honey Nut Cheerios commercial (‘they're better than a body slam!'), Mr. T firing Snickers bars out of a tank cannon and demanding that we all GET SOME NUTS, and Ozzy Osborne baking up some fairy cakes in the name of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.

All of these things actually happened. Just ask the Internet, it'll tell you. It's no different in the world of video games either; our famous buddies pop up in the weirdest places. Remember Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, the early nineties beat ‘em up that saw you dancing enemies to death as the man himself?

Then there was Shaq Fu, a 1994 fighting game starring ex basketball pro Shaquille O'Neal. It was… well, a horrible ballache, frankly, but has since earned itself cult status as one of the worst video games ever made. So here's some news to file into the drawer marked Why? Effing WHY?: there's a sequel on the way.

After all these years, all the memories of its suckitude I've repressed, I don't think my ass is ready for Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn. But I'll have to get used to it, because it's happening. Feast your eyes on this, fresh from the Game Awards:

At least it's bringing some pretty sweet puns our way. Shaqwave? I see what you did there, developers, and I respect you for it.
