Use it Constantly

I used to rely on mere guesswork to determine whether or not I was watching the movie Kazaam. Now I’m Shazam-for- Kazaaming three to four times a week and loving it!

I’ve gotten my confidence back

I used to always look foolish in front of women and coworkers by wrongly declaring “This movie is Kazaam” when I was actually watching Aladdin or Blue Chips or just looking out the window at a very tall man. This app has been a game-changer for me. My newfound confidence in what is and isn’t Kazaam has led to a big promotion at work and tons more stamina in the sack.

Racist App! Thinks Stringer Bell actor is Shaq!!!

My coworker was watching what turned out to be the trailer for the Nelson Mandela biopic, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. After Shazam-for-Kazaaming it, I foolishly said, "Hey, Kazaam! I love this movie!" This incident coupled with my two previous racially charged infractions, ended up getting me fired from my job.
