Everyone’s gone zombie crazy! Here are just a few of the zombie-rific things I have found lately.
- MSNBC has an article about zombies as the ultimate movie monster
- Threadless has re-printed their awesome In Case of Zombies t-shirt
- The Village Voice has a photo gallery of “zombies” at the 28 Weeks later preimier
- Even Wikipedia is on the undead band wagon with an extensive list of Zombie flicks
Zombies have been around for a long time, but they have recently made their way to the forefront of pop-culture. This attention kinda reminds me of the wave of Ska music that invaded the radio in the 90′s. In that it’s an entertainment niche that has always been around but the pop spotlight has brought it to the forefront for a little show and tell.
Who knows how long the living dead will be all up in our grill. I suppose when they start shilling Coke and appearing on Oprah we will know they have reached critical pop culture mass and jumped (or eaten?) the shark. But until that time I will bask in the rotting glow of the zombie invasion.
