Help prevent the apocalypse alongside Dikembe Mutombo and Science the Bear

According to the Mayan Calendar, we are all hurtling toward inescapable destruction. On December 21, the world will cease to be. What better way to help prevent the apocalypse than to join former NBA player and current Old Spice Champion Dikembe Mutombo in his quest to add more time to the calendar?

Play, baby, play!

Three whole levels of 8-bit fun (including fat Dikembe, Random Turkey, and a bear wearing a Cosby sweater) are available now. The latest level has Dikembe creeping through a Hollywood Fat Cat's house in an attempt to prevent another vampire film from being made, all the while flinging Old Spice at disgruntled emo teens who are trying to prevent Dikembe from obliterating their obsession.

New levels will be released every Monday as we speed toward the end of times. Play Dikembe Mutombo's 4½ Weeks to Save the World now. Help him fling ballots at annoying dancers and crush creepy smiling Blurgies with wagons. Do it. He needs you — the world needs you – to be a champion.

Win things!

Because it's better to be safe than sorry, you'd better prepare for December 21, 2012. Tweet your game tips along with the hashtag #dikembetips by 6 PM ET on December 19, and you'll be entered to win a Dikembe Disco Kit, including an official Cosby sweater (so you can dress like Science the Bear!), a home planetarium (so you can enjoy actual Science!), a disco ball (do not destroy!), K-Pop headphones (keep that shizz to yourself!), a 4-person survival kit (juuuuuust in case), and an Old Spice Champion jet —er, prize— pack (for fresh smells!). The whole shebang is worth more than $1,000.
