I know, it seems crazy. You’ll probably hear dozens, if not hundreds, of songs about zombies sung by a sunflower during the course of this lovely Friday. Still, I stand by my claim and state that this music video — an exceedingly odd and wonderful promo for the Plants Vs. Zombies game — is absolutely the best one you’ll hear all day.
The game is a swell little computer game where you set up plants to try and keep the invading zombie hordes from getting past the lawn and into the house; check it out here. Personally, I’m not sure I’ll be able to play it, because that would mean I’ll have to stop watching this music video, and right now, I’m not willing to do that. There’s a zombie with butter on its head, for fuck’s sake! I’m not made of stone! (Via Kotaku)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
