Zombies & Funeral Homes - A Perfect Match


Most of the time when movie or television ads go up on the side of buildings, there is no real relation between the two. Oh sure, sometimes you might get lucky, but this ad placement for The Walking Dead is genius. In case you have not seen the show, it is about zombies. What better place to advertise zombies than on the side of a funeral parlor. This way when people go and visit their loved ones before they are put to rest, they can not only get an idea of what they will watch on television that night, but can also hope and pray that their loved one will be lucky enough to be a zombie.

By the way, does cooperative funeral care mean that everyone chips in to make the body look good? Are there embalming parties and no one told me? Oh, maybe it is kind of like the movie Night Shift. Oh yeah. Henry Winkler, Michael Keaton and Shelley Long. I can't believe she left Cheers AFTER being in that movie. You would think she would have learned her lesson.

Walking Dead. Love that show. And I love, love, love Night Shift. Hey kid, you like music?

It's a co-op, so in a sense, you are right, Enty. :)

That is hilarious signage placement. Apparently, people got pissed and they had to take it down.

Love Walking Dead. Watched every episode right in a row and wanted more! On another note, we have The Shed here in town, where you can buy sex stuff, all the incense you can manage and oh smoking paraphernalia. Anyhow, on the side of their building over the winter they decided to paint a huge mural of some of their products and they're logo. Right next to this building? You guessed it, a funeral home.

I don't know if when you have to use the funeral home you can really appreciate the humor.

@Ms Cool: I loved Night Shift, too! It has some great lines, and even young Shannen Doherty and Kevin Costner!
"Let's roll, Big Time, rock and roll!"
"Bill, that hearse is for dead people!" "Yeah? Get a look at that kid?"
"That Barney Rubble. What an actor!"

We used to have a funeral home and ice cream shop share a building not too far from here.
