The one and only Dikembe Mutombo is featured in possibly the greatest video game known to all mankind.

Dikembe Mutombo is one of the best characters the NBA has ever seen.  From his signature voice to his signature finger wag after blocking shots, Mutombo was one of a kind.  He is now featured in a new video game promotion for Old Spice.

This video game is called “Dikembe Mutombo’s 4½ Weeks To Save The World.”  The premise is to add days onto the Mayan calendar, which ends on December 21st.  There are a series of random (and awesome) games to win which will accomplish this goal.

The game also features the Mutombo finger wag as the cursor.  How awesome is that?  Sure, the graphics basically stink and the games stink as well, but that’s the beauty of this whole ad campaign.  It’s meant to be bad on purpose.  I love the concept.  Thumbs up, Old Spice.
