When you think of Apple’s iMac computers the last thing that comes to mind is probably a zombie chowing down on the brains of the system — its memory.
But, on May 25th (Friday) that is exactly what customers at a downtown San Francisco Apple store were witness to. A group of about 150 zombies, decaying flesh, dripping blood and all, decended on the Union Square store, bringing about chaos and sheer terror to its customers as the living dead proceeded to gnaw away at the chassis’ of several iMacs trying to get at its central brain and memory core.
The event was the brain-child (excuse the pun) of EatBrains.com.
“SF Zombie Mob 2007” wasn’t quite as chaotic as one might imagine, but was well organized and all in fun. Even some of the businesses (including the Apple store and Nordstrom) invaded by the fans dressed as zombies got into the fun spirit of the event and didn’t hit the panic button or call the police. It was all in fun and everyone, even those taken aback, had great fun and a good laugh. However, some of the stores, such as the Disney store and the security guards at the Westfield Mall tried to keep the zombies at bay — Party Poopers!
Okay, I can understand Disney, don’t want to scare the kiddies.
