Once upon a time zombies were featured in semi-underground, unrated movies that only the die hards saw. Now they’re being used to sell clothes at Sears.
Sears has a ‘zombified’ version of their website up right now (for Halloween) and it’s actually pretty cool, to be honest. I mean, sure, zombies have lost all their bite once Sears - SEARS! - is rebranding their website with the shuffling undead in mind, but they did a good job. And maybe the argument to be made here isn’t that our beloved cannibal dead have been coopted by the system but rather that the system has been devoured by the unliving.
One of the cool components of Sears’ makeover is the option to view the site in Zombian - essentially groaning - which is kind of funny.
The sad thing is that George Romero will never see a dime connected to zombies. To essentially invent the most popular new monster in centuries… and get nothing!
