Zombie Apocalypse Shootout Attack
Saturday, November 2, 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.
MountainLair Food Court
Do you like the idea of shooting humans with no jail time and a sense of moral accomplishment? Of course you do; that’s why we at the Man Cave love zombies. Big, vicious sacks of meat running around that clearly would be better off with a 12-guage in the eye. Fantastic.
Well, unfortunately, the real zombie apocalypse hasn’t happened (yet), so close up your safe room for now. Keep those guns loaded and your all-terrain zombie death-vehicle fueled, though. Don’t have an all-terrain zombie death vehicle? Waste of resources, you say? Don’t come crying to us when you’ve got 100 post-humans between you and the Twinkie factory.
Because we’re not really in a position to help anyway.
Is the gist of what I’m saying.
What was this post about, again? Oh, right, so WVU is hosting a Zombie Apocalypse Shootout Attack this Saturday at WVUpAllNight. Finally, it seems WVU accepted the Man Cave’s proposal to begin mandatory zombie defense training for the students.
According to Daryn Vucelik, lead intern for UpAllNight, Saturday will be WVU’s very first zombie-themed weekend.
“I guess zombies are just really in right now!” she told me excitedly.
The shootout will be put on by New York-based entertainment company Bobby K Entertainment (likely a government front). I was surprised that WVU was bringing people in all the way from New York for UpAllNight, but Vucelik tells me that it’s “pretty typical for [WVU] to work with entertainment companies that come from all over the country.”
“We want to best events out there for out students,” she explained. “We leave it open for places — we have some from Michigan, we’ve had them come from Maryland, New York.”
This weekend’s activity will consist of a “classic game of capture the flag using a ‘human body’ as the bait and soft glow in the dark balls as the ammunition as you defend your lives,” according to the website. Here, check out this video, and try to ignore the overly-dramatic announcer:
So, looks like two lucky people get dolled up to look like brain-eaters and try to kidnap a human replica. Actually, might need to get those makeup artists in on the Man Cave’s Zombie Defense Team in case we have to go into enemy territory and blend in. Adding that to the list.
Vucelik expects this weekend to have one of their biggest turnouts yet, with Make Your Own Movie Posters, zombie makeup and zombie food. For a full list of events, tune your browser to this link, and hopefully I’ll see you there. Happy Halloween.
