A series of trailers from Bethesda shows the Vault Boy from Fallout teaming up with the Philadelphia 76ers to promote the upcoming Fallout 76.

Markelle Fultz, the first overall pick by the 76ers during this year’s draft, is a young point/shooter guard who just started playing in the NBA last year. He stars alongside Vault Boy in a majority of the videos, playing a S.P.E.C.I.A.L. game of horse in which the Vault boy fails to make any shots, watches in amazement as the Vault Boy utilizes V.A.T.S. to make a half-court shot, and does some special wasteland training. Each video is short and humorous, mostly due to the Vault Boy costume falling over.

Bethesda and Microsoft also took over the 76ers stadium during their game against the Detroid Pistons with Vault jumpsuits, lots of Xbox and Fallout advertisements, and Fallout 76 custom jerseys and player kits.

Fans of the Philadelphia 76ers can also grab a very special “Radioactive Edition” Xbox One X featuring their logo and name prominently on the console hardware.

Each of the videos can be viewed below, and you can grab a pre-order for Fallout 76 on Amazon before it launches on November 14 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
