Dikembe Mutombo Gets Block-Happy for Hilarious Geico Commercial

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 4, 2013

GEICO released a commercial that really tickled us right in the meaty part of the funny bone, bringing back the shot-blocking genius of the great Dikembe Mutombo. 

Simply, you don't bring that weak stuff into Mutombo's house, or even the laundromat. 

There really is nothing better than seeing Mutombo block a shot and give his classic finger wave to a humiliated player. 

Sadly, those days are long gone and only live in brief spats on YouTube and other video sites—until now. 

The auto insurance company usually providing humor from an animated gecko, GEICO, went out of their way to bring the funny recently. 

There is something so hilariously delicious about seeing Mutombo swat some laundry and talk trash or annihilate a box of cereal in the face of an unsuspecting kid in the store. 

There really needs to be a reality-TV series dedicated to Mutomobo traveling to obscure locales only to stuff inanimate objects and talk mad smack afterwards. 

The former NBA big man was recently Old Spice's answer to save the world in a funny 8-bit video game series. 

Now, he proves he is no comedic one-hit wonder with this classic commercial that will go down with some of the best.
