OK, who the gotdangit is responsible for this? In case you don’t feel like clicking that link let me sum it up for you. Someone with clearly no understanding of zombies is organizing a zombie walk this weekend in Downtown LA. Now you might think that sounds interesting and fun and interesting, but you would be wrong. This isn’t a zombie walk where hordes or zombies descend upon and unsuspecting populous and stumble around getting blood on things. Oh no, this one is being used as a marketing tool for a horror convention, happening in an otherwise empty part of town ensuring that only convention attendees will even see it, and worst of all, it’s for charity.
News Flash: Zombies don’t care about conventions or marketing, they go where crowds of people are–not where they aren’t–and they don’t give a crap about charities. All they want is to eat you. Is that so hard to understand? This is what a zombie walk should look like:
That photo taken by Scott Beale / Laughing Squid shows an outright zombie attack on an Apple Store in SF. Zombies were removed by force at the hands of the cops because people were so freaked out. That, and other events like the ones organized by eatbrains.com understand the chaos that would be a swarm of zombies invading a metro area. Chaos! You can’t have order and corporate backing for a zombie walk. Way to suck.
