Train ticket retailer and travel app Trainline has joined forces with Big Shaq, Michael Dapaah’s “Man’s Not Hot” character, for the world’s first voicebot duet. The team up is part of a promotional run for Trainline’s voice app, built for the Google Assistant.

In the two-minute clip created by BBH, Big Shaq can be seen going back and forth with the app, battling it in a rap, while the app fires back answers to his travel queries. David Slocombe, product director at Trainline states, “In the world’s first rap duet between a rapper and a Voicebot, Big Shaq put Trainline’s voice app through its paces but it was more than up to the challenge. Trainline’s voice app is a great example of our mission to use smarter technologies to make travel simpler and more hassle-free.”

Check out the “the world’s first rap duet between a rapper and Voicebot” above. Trainline’s voice app is available on the Google Assistant app on iOS and Android.

In case you’ve missed it, Big Shaq battled Arsenal star Danny Welbeck at FIFA 18.
