This campaign is so cool: Head to Westlake Ace Hardware and stock up on all the supplies you will need to ward off a Zombie attack (shovels, nail guns etc). Oh yeah, if you're a Zombie, you can head in and pick up the things you'll need as well (duct tape and glue to help keep your body parts from falling off).

The campaign was launched using social media (facebook / youtube) and has gone viral and has been picked up and reported on not only by bloggers, but the main stream media as well. The New York Times and the Washington Post have done stories on it, and it has gotten press in France / Italy and other countries.

The idea was conceived and launched by Bozell, an old line Omaha Ad and PR firm. Kudos to Bozell for showing the world that you don't need to be in NY

so cause I am against zombie and vampire freak wannabees descending in benson

and there 15 or so bars on maple street, I am considering "no fun". maybe I have more I dont need to make a fool myself in public view of fun.


or maybe I dont need to act like a child who wont grow up like many of these zombie wannabees are.


the folks involved in the zombie walk in benson are nothing more than Rejuveniles (folks who are adults who refuse to grow up and do something product other than dress up like goth freaks


p.s. I hate Halloween (only good thing about Halloween is 50 % on sale off candy on nov. 1st at walgreens) and I dont really celebrate Holidays. Holidays are only nothing more than a vacation from work to me.

You sound like a pretty miserable, lonely person. I feel sorry for you.
