[youtube  about two decades of touting  target="_blank">tacos target="_blank">full-sized sedans, and virtually everything in-between, Shaq can now be seen in a commercial stumping for incumbent New Jersey governor Chris Christie. The spot covers what you'd expect: jobs, education, etc.

"He's a good man," the native New Jerseyan says. "Excuse me, he's a great man."

As Shaq mentions in the ad, he doesn't endorse many politicians. As such, this one didn't come out of nowhere. Back in March, the former NBA star gave the governor some ideas for New Jersey's gun buyback program. More recently, the pair announced plans for the state's new Just Play initiative that provides after-school activities intended to curb gang membership.
