Oh Yeah, As Expected, Dikembe Did Save the World Last Week

As we were out early last week thanks to some holiday festivities, we sadly missed the thrilling conclusion to W+K and Old Spice’s “4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World” campaign, which called on the services of none other than old #55, Dikembe Mutombo. But, since we’re working in slow-motion this week, might as well try to play catch up and post the final clip. Since our planet did indeed survive 12/21/12, Dikembe and his odds and sods cast of 8-bit characters including the Cosby sweater-wearing “dear Science, the bear” accomplished their mission. So, what better way to celebrate averting the apocalypse than an epic ballad seemingly inspired by “We Are the World.”

Still, while we’re led to believe all is well with Mother Earth, apparently our shelf life has only been extended approximately 15 months according a reveal halfway through the clip above. What are W+K and Old Spice hinting at? Do we even care to find out? Whatever the case, this current events-inspired online gaming effort of sorts was mostly fun while it lasted.
