It turns out that 8-bit video games are all the rage in today’s viral marketing. Just last week Champs Sports and adidas released the playable Two Chainz 8-bit video game, this week Old Spice has followed suit with Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World.
The story begins with one of the most amazing monologues in video game history read by Mutombo himself:
A kabillion some odd years ago-ish, the Mayans predicted the world would end on December 21, 2012, Which is a terrible idea since we as humans have not even invented a self combing hair yet.
Someone had to defend our planet and prevent this from happening. And that defender had to be me: Dikembe Mutombo. For four-and-a-half weeks, I will courageously battle to save your world, and with your help, carve additional time into the Mayan calendar to buy us more time on this Earth.
