At a staggering height of 7’1 feet, Shaq is someone hard to ignore. However, for Arnold who is 6’2 feet tall, this means that the height difference would be clearly visible when they are together. Though, the bodybuilder does meticulously try to hide this fact under his remarkable sense of humor.

Arnold posted a picture of him and Shaq on his Instagram handle, but the caption gathered all the attention. In the caption, he wrote“Great to see my friend @shaq in Columbus, although I don’t know why he always insists on standing on a 2-foot box when he’s with me. I’m here for the @arnoldsports, he’s here to do a fantastic DJ show. We used to share an office years ago and I love seeing his continued success.”

Well, as per the picture, it seems it was Arnold who actually needed a 2 feet box.
