Watch: Jerry Rice went undercover as a Lyft driver in San Francisco

Wednesday February 3rd, 2016

There are few football players as famous as Jerry Rice, especially in San Francisco, where he spent 16 years of his Hall of Fame career playing for the 49ers.

It seems that all it takes is a pair of sunglasses and a stocking cap to render him unrecognizable though, as he went undercover as a Lyft driver for a new video, and almost nobody recognized him, although one Niners fan does say he looks familiar.

Rice really gets into his role as a talkative driver though, even describing his “method dancing” technique to one amused passenger, before pulling over and inviting a few passengers to join him for a roadside dance party before revealing his identity.
