Dikembe Mutombo and Old Spice are here to save the world

Matt Hawkins Contributing Writer, Video Games

The world will end soon, but Dikembe Mutombo and Old Spice are here to help in the form of Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World.

If you haven’t heard of the advergame sensation from Old Spice, here’s the deal: for the past few weeks, the retired NBA All Star has been doing everything possible to, as he puts it, “carve additional time into the Mayan calendar” in an attempt to prolong oblivion for the human race.

Thus far he’s reminded Americans of their duty to vote, despite being distracted by some crappy Korean dance song, and protected children from big fuzzy alien-like creatures, all while cruising around in a mine cart and listening to some vaguely Justin Bieber-esque song (from a mixtape that Dikembe received from a turkey).

And his latest task involves him preventing some Hollywood fat cat from winning the lottery, who wishes to use the winnings to finance another crappy teen vampire flick, which would completely destroy the minds of everyone. You can play the latest game, plus the previous two, by simply clicking this link.

What'd you think of this?
