Idol of the Dead

Found on Craigslist

Haven't you always wanted to raise awareness about the brain-melting nature of television by putting on makeup, pretending -- along with 40 other people -- to be a zombie, and terrorizing throngs of vapid pop star hopefuls at the Austin American Idol Auditions? Yes? Well here's your chance! The American Idol Auditions will be taking placing on Thursday, August 25 at the Frank Erwin Special Events Center (right by the stadium on the UT campus).

Ideally, we'll have 35-40 zombies, 5 or 6 plants in line (who will then be "attacked and zombified" by the horde) and two or three people taking pictures/videotaping. I'm thinking that the zombie horde will besiege the Idol hopefuls beginning sometime between 10:00 and noon. Oh, and just so we're clear, this is meant to be fun/funny, not mean/violent, and, as such, we'll be working from the old-school George Romero staggering/shuffling school of zombie-ism, not the new 28 Days Later feral-fast zombie style.
