Unfortunate Ad Placement: "Walking Dead" Poster Outside Funeral Home

| by Crazy Days and Nights

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.
