GEICO – Dikembe Mutombo is pretty happy blocking shots

Dikembe Mutombo is becoming quite the advertising professional. Fresh off saving the world from the Mayan apocalypse with Old Spice, Mutombo is now helping pitch insurance by blocking shots and giving his iconic finger wag. 

We could watch Mutombo block shots / smash cereal boxes in children's faces all day. It's nice to see Mutombo's face (and finger) back in the spotlight considering we haven't really heard much from the NBA veteran after he retired in 2009. 

As for GEICO, this is a welcome change compared to some of their other "Happier than" commercials. Witch in a broom factory? Dumb. Mutombo destroying any shot that crosses his path? Gold.
