Internet Awesomeness: Zombie Edition

Awesome videos and such from the internets with ZOMBIES!

1) Walking Dead Mad Men

What happens when you mix 2 very popular AMC shows about advertising and zombies? This amazing video! Zombie advertising agents from the 60's and overdramatic zombie apocalypse survivors are hilarious together. I've never seen Mad Men, but the jokes about Walking Dead are spot on.

2) Zombie Experiment NYC

A couple months ago, Dish pulled AMC and its associated channels from their service and this little commercial is part of the campaign to get zombie back on TV. People were made-up to look like zombies and set loose on the streets of New York. This video records the unsuspecting public's reactions. It's a very unique way to advertise for another company vs. TV channel conflict.

3) Adventure Time Zombies

Adventure Time is an amazingly imaginative and twisted show that mixes science fiction and fantasy in delightful ways. Please, watch this show if you haven't yet. Anyway: this first video from the episode Slumber Party Panic, Princess Bubblegum tries to resurrect dead Candy People, but ends up turning them into sugar craving, candy eating zombies.

In a later episode, Princess Bubblegum is experimenting with a remnant of dead zombie flesh when Cinnamon Bun eats it and becomes a zombie. We get to see a lot of the beloved characters become mindless zombies and poor Finn needs to figure out what to do on his own without understanding the science to make the antidote.

These two episodes are two of my favorites because they bring zombies to a great cartoon show while retaining their horror. I hope for more zombie episodes in the future!

More zombies to come!
