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.
