adidas Originals “House of Mutombo” – The Journey


In celebration of the return of the adidas Mutombo, the three-stripe brand is launching a three-part animated series entitled "The House of Mutombo." The inaugural episode, subtitled "The Journey" and featuring illustrations from Nathan McKee and animation by Jamal Qutub, chronicles Dikembe Mutombo's passage from his Congo homeland to the United States, where he would put aside his childhood dream of becoming a doctor for an alternate path. The gravel-voiced narration is provided by Dikembe himself, while musical accompaniment for the colorful clip comes courtesy of PJ Portlock. Check out the video below, and look for the adidas Mutombo to launch in stores August 24th.
