‘The Walking Dead’ Intro Recreated Using Shoppers

We often forget that George Romero’s seminal Zombie movie Dawn of the Dead  is actually a satirical film about consumerism via a good old fashioned metaphor. Just in case, the 1978 version was a little too subtle for your tastes, Marca Blanca created a video called ‘The Buying Dead’ and recreated the Walking Dead intro to hammer home the similarities of zombies and consumerism.

The next time you shake your head in disbelief when witnessing the worst aspects of human behaviour as shoppers fight each other for items they want but don’t need, I guarantee you won’t forget the parallels between consumerism and those ubiquitous zombies again.
