Banned Zombie Commercial Shows That When There’s No More Room In Hell, The Dead Will Sell You Things
If you’d told me when I was a weird little horror-obsessed kid that, at some point in my life, one of the most popular shows on television would be a zombie story, and that the undead would be used as spokes-corpses to hawk all manner of products, I would have laughed in your face. But lo and behold, here we are. Recently zombies have endorsed Sears, FedEx, a couple different kinds of cars, and Starbursts, just to name a few.
Still, not every attempt to corral the zombie-fan demographic is a wild success. For example, there’s this one from Norway. It isn’t necessarily a failure as an advertisement — I totally want to buy whatever the hell it is that they’re trying to sell (it has something do with sports equipment?) — but it had to go and get itself banned from the airwaves. Take a gander for yourself.
