A few months ago, we told you about how the Mavericks were planning on sending a Dirk Nowitzki bobblehead into outer space. But then, the Mavs star got hurt and missed the beginning of the season, the Mavs got off to a rough start and, well, the whole "let's send Dirk into space!" buzz died down.

But, recently, the Mavs have been playing so poorly that they needed to do something to get their fans excited about buying tickets. So, they went ahead with their plan to send Nowitzki's bobblehead into space, recorded it, and turned it into a ticket promotion.

Hey, you can never accuse Mark Cuban of not pulling out all the stops in order to try and make money, right? Good one, guys. This is actually pretty cool.
