The Walking Dead Billboard: Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, April 18, 2011

This might just be the sleekest product placement. Not to mentioned deadliest.

Spotted by The Daily Mail, a giant sized billboard advertising for The Walking Dead TV series were found beside the wall of "The Co-operative Funeralcare", a funeral parlour in Consett, County Durham.

Via The Daily Mail:

A spokesman for the Co-operative Funeralcare said its premises in Consett were leased.
He said: 'It is disappointing that we were not consulted as this advert could cause unnecessary distress.
'When the billboard site was erected, we were assured that no insensitive adverts would be featured.'
The company responsible, Clear Channel, has agreed the advert is inappropriate and an alternative has since been pasted in its place.
A spokesman said: 'Clear Channel apologises for any offence caused by the unfortunate juxtaposition of this advertisement, which was certainly not intended. We arranged to have it removed right away and it has since come down.'


Now that's some unintended undeadpan humor.
