Zombies, as a genre, have probably officially jumped the shark…

This ad came in the mail recently. “In a world devastated by lack of sleep…” I don’t know what to say.

    Used to be when brains were enough, but the zombies today really crave the flat-screen.

  2. No, that ad did not jump over anything. One wheel of the bike hit the front corner of the ramp, and it turned over and skidded 5 feet on the pavement, without bursting into flame, and no one was seriously hurt. It turned out the driver was wearing Depends undergarments duct-taped to every part of his/her body. As was the crew filming the event, and the spectators.

    It will get far worse than this, Stephan, rest assured.

    I knew the zombies were coming.

    I need to stock up on canned food, pronto!

    Zombies are sure everywhere these days. Luckily the youth of this generation are prepared. From my own infant son's mouth “Kin Kill Zombies”

    I can't believe I was actually more offended by the ad's use of the apostrophe in “let's” than I was by the crass zombie-commercialism.

    Wait, weren't zombie movies originally a critique of consumerism? Gah, rather than jumping the shark we've just created a full-circle singularity.

  6. I was done with zombies a number of years ago.
    Enough already.

    Vampires are next.

    I found myself wondering if this ad meant that I should shoot people in the head if they looked sleepy.
