Whilst waiting for a bus to work this morning, I was reminded of a valiant man who, despite the ridicule of the press, is truly ready for the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse. A poster for the comedy (or documentary?) ‘Zombieland’ was on the side of my bus this morning and its star, Woody Harrelson, is a man on top of the Z.A. After the film had finished shooting, Mr. Harrelson apparently assaulted a photographer at La Guardia airport – you can read the full story at CNN here.
This may be old news, having taken place in April, but seeing Harrelson on the side of a bus reminded me of his defence:
“I wrapped a movie called ‘Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character. With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie.”
Though this defence is completely hilarious, it should be added that if we were all to adopt such a lifestyle (in which we assume everyone we don’t know is a zombie), the chances of total carnage would be somewhat reducedâ€¦ something to think about? Or are we taking this too seriously?
