If you thought that Old Spice had really stepped to the forefront of hilarious commercials in the last year, you’re about to get a swift kick to your funny boner from Dikembe Mutombo. For some reason that I don’t even care about at this point, the company behind my deodorant has released an online video game called “Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 ½ Weeks To Save The World” and yes, it is absolutely as awesome as you’d expect it to be. How awesome is it? The cursor is a wagging finger. I should just stop and let you play, because that should be all the reason you need.
But it gets so much better with Mutombo’s voice, the Mayan apocalypse, ridiculous game levels including “Week One: The Great 2012 Dance Crisis” and “Week Two: The Blurgpocalypse”, and guest characters such as Science the Bear, who makes me wish I was his best friend. Anyway, you don’t need to hear anymore. You can either jump to the Old Spice website and play the game or you can just hang out after the jump and play it with me for the rest of the day (heads up, it starts automatically with sound, so get them speakers down).
It’s your choice, and it should be easy, because I’m handsome.
Kudos to the people at Old Spice for taking shots at Psy’s “Gangnam Style”, too. Sure, the Korean pop star may have the most watched YouTube video in history, but we have strict policies here in America about Internet sensation time limits. If people in the entertainment industry get “15 minutes” then Internet celebrities only have approximately 5 minutes. Hell, that might be too generous. Rebecca Black had maybe 2 minutes, but Psy actually had a redeeming talent. Either way, I’m babbling and probably distracting you from playing this awesome game. Sorry, I just like to make conversation in the morning, and I feel like we don’t talk that much anymore. Want to get some takeout later and maybe watch a movie? I’ll pick up something from Red Box.
