Zombie RomCom markets #occupy 99% theme

January 18, 2013

ZombieLaw frequently touts the connection of zombies to politics and protests, particularly #Anonymous, #Occupy and more recently #IdleNoMore

The upcoming zombie rom-com “Warm Bodies” has already been effective in using social media to market the movie. Today they’ve gone a step further by more directly linking their movie zombies to the #occupy protests of late 2011. See Wired: “Zombies Are the 99% in Propaganda Posters for Undead Romance Warm Bodies” by Lewis Wallace:

Four new propaganda-style posters for zombie comedy Warm Bodies reveal the upcoming movie’s radical thesis: Zombies are people too.

So I guess we should add ‘love’ to the list of known zombie cures (salt, laughter, puppies).
