‘Shaun of the Dead’ Bloody Glass Shirt Reminds the ZRC of an Old Convention Artifact

BuyZombie brings us news of a ‘Shaun of the Dead’ shirt featuring some rather inflammatory imagery:

Icky and spreading fear and hatred.

Shaun Shaun Shaun and your inability to ever really do anything right. Only you would let the zombies get close enough to your beer glasses to dirty them up this way. Even so we know you get things worked out in the end so let’s just celebrate with this awesome shirt.

Obviously we can’t agree with BuyZombie’s sarcastic take on this awful demagoguery in polycotton; it’s just too serious an issue. ‘Shaun of the Dead’ is back with a vengeance of late for some reason; Simon Pegg’s increasing US popularity as a parody film star might have something to do with it.

So when we have a t-shirt maker trying to cash in on the wave of hate that Shaun promotes, we have to call them on it.

This shirt is Anti-Zombie.

Why can't a Zombie have a beer, huh, Shaun?

This shirt did get me to thinking about something I picked up a few years ago at Horrorhound, before regularly working on The Zombie Rights Campaign, which I had uncovered while sorting through some storage items recently: a very fiendishly detailed pint glass celebrating that awful, Living Supremacist movie in fairly unique fashion:

Needless to say, the ZRC doesn’t approve of that pint glass either. Wait for all of this to blow over? What, the Zombie population exercising their right not to stay dead? Is that what needs to ‘blow over’?

For shame. This glass is also Anti-Zombie.

Why can't a Zombie have a beer, huh, Shaun? Part II

    I certainly learned about almost all of this, but that being said, I still believed it had been useful. Great job!
