On May 13th, countless individuals swarmed the streets of Moscow, moaning and chanting, searching for the closest source of edible brains. Known as the “Moscow Zombie Parade,” the event took place on Arbat street, located somewhere in Moscow. (I’ve never been to Moscow, but the pictures make it look like a popular downtown shopping strip – perfect for a sudden zombie flashmob.)
As evident by the pictures, everyone dressed in their best zombie costumes, drenched themselves in blood, and had a ghoulishly fun time. From undead nuns to soup-offering zombie cooks, the costumes were highly detailed, morbidly creative, and extremely sickening.
Unfortunately, somewhere near the end of the parade the zombies were raided by the police. Some 30 zombies were dragged off for holding an “unauthorized meeting.” They most likely were dissected and torn apart, studied for the inevitable outbreak that most certainly will occur from such a gathering of zombies. May their undead souls rest in peace.
Some day I hope to hear about an outstanding American zombie flashmob, yet Paris and Moscow have us beat so far. Come on, America, I know you love zombies! Show your undead love and start shuffling the streets!
