iZombie

The other day a friend and I were talking about flashmobbing and today I found this story and thought it only right to share! Andy keep em peeled they may be in a town near you!!!

A horde of decaying zombies invaded San Francisco's downtown Apple store on Friday evening, hunting for brains, terrifying the customers, and gnawing on iMacs. It was difficult to judge the exact number of zombies that shuffled through the city's shopping district, losing limbs, blood, and unmentionable body parts along the way, but probably at least 150 converged on Union Square.

Then they decided to visit nearby businesses, including the Apple store, Nordstrom, the Disney store, and the Westfield Mall.The event was titled "SF Zombie Mob 2007," and it was organized by the gruesome-minded folks at eatbrains.com. It's akin to a flash mob, though because the participants trek around the city after gathering, the Zombie Mob was closer in concept to the Critical Mass bicycle ride, which coincidentally was happening at the same time along the same street.

In truth, it was a pretty polite affair: only passers-by who volunteered to become zombie-fied were, and no arrests took place.It may be worth noting that the Westfield Mall and Disney security tried to bar the zombies from entering, but Apple store security did not.
In fact, salespeople were jostling one another for a position where they could take the best photo of the zombies (or themselves with the zombies, or their brains being eaten by the zombies).

see the photos for yourself
