What was Shaq wearing on his head at Busch Gardens?

NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal was at Busch Gardens today, hanging out in the gift shops, riding the Congo River Rapids, and inciting a mini Twitter riot with his mere presence.

Also, something strange seems to have attached itself to his head.

It appears to be some sort of plaid golf hat, with either a Tribble or a Hostess Sno Ball stuck to the top. Because, you know, a 7-foot-2 guy has to do something to call attention to himself.

But you gotta love that Shaq was wandering the theme park, mingling with fans (read: smiling as people stuck their phones in his face), and acting like a regular tourist, even if you’re not digging the headwear.
