Yes, you read that correctly; the makers of foamy toy weapons that have endeared themselves to generations of young people (including myself, at one time) have decided to jump into the lucrative market of catering to those afraid of Zombies.
In the process, of course, they help to indoctrinate the next generation against the Undead. Observe:
You’ll be the ultimate zombie hunter with the Crossfire Bow blaster! Load one of your powerful Zombie Strike darts and draw the string back so you’re locked and loaded when a zombie crosses your path. Take your shot with a quick pull of the trigger and load another dart! Get ready to bring down the zombies one by one with the Crossfire Bow blaster!
This latest affront to our shared humanity has The Walking Dead’s odious influence all over it. I don’t think Hasbro is making NERF crossbows to cater to fans of Resident Evil 2.
(Yes, it had a crossbow in it. No Norman Reedus though).
It’s so sad to see capitalism misused this way. What about toys for the Zombie Children? Won’t somebody think of them?
Shame on you, Hasbro.
