Imagine hailing a cab and your taxi driver turns out to be Hall of Famer Jerry Rice. This is the exact experience bestowed upon five lucky Lyft passengers in San Francisco, except only one seemed to recognize the former 49ers player.

Decked out in a beanie and sunglasses, Rice went undercover as a Lyft driver in the same city where he played professional football.  

Rice asked one passenger who his favorite team was.

“My team, it's been the Niners, since I was born and raised in San Jose," the passenger said. "I am a big Niner guy."

Yet the proclaimed Niners’ fan failed to recognize one of the NFL’s most glorified wide receivers.

At one point during the ride, Rice takes an impromptu stretch break which culminated into an unexpected dance party between him and his passengers, where he then reveals his true identity.
