Dikembe Mutombo Blocks Everything In New Geico Commercial

Saturday February 2nd, 2013

It's been a resurgent few months for Dikembe Mutombo on the endorsement front. In December, the eight-time NBA All-Star lent his image to an 8-bit video game sponsored by Old Spice called Dikembe Mutombo's 4½ Weeks to Save the World. Now he's filmed a 30-second TV spot for GEICO in which he blocks random objects and does his signature finger wag.

Predictably, the amusing clip has gone viral. What's more, @jose3030 showed why he's an essential follow on Twitter by rendering GIFs of all six blocks from the commercial.
