Zombie Apocalypse Hints: Go to this Ace Hardware!

Posted by on Mon, Jan 21, 2013 at 11:14 AM

Maybe you're no longer worried about the possibility of a zombie apocalypse—but it could still happen! And if it does, you're gonna want to run straight to the Ace Hardware. And not just any Ace Hardware but the one featured in this 10 minute, award-winning documentary short that is currently a Sundance fave, "When the Zombies Come."

Actual, bored Ace Hardware employees dream up a incredibly intricate plan to ward off a zombie invasion and the results are pretty goddamn HILARIOUS. (Plus this mini-movie really pissed off the Ace Hardware executives who are trying to get the film eradicated from the universe. Good luck, jerks!) WATCH IT!

Gas is only $3.08? No wonder zombies want to go there.

Who hasn't done this at their workplace?

what? I saw a trailer for this as an ad on a youtube video, and I assumed it was an ACE hardware ad.

How are they planning on repopulating the earth with "no kids and no bitches"?

"Just no kids and no bitches."

And unless you have your own water tank you will not have water.

I'm afraid I was underwhelmed. My hopes were got up and my expectations were not met by that dull video of people talking and not actually *doing* anything.

ACE HARDWARE your employees "have nothing to do". Thought you should know.

Ace hardware probably does not employ an edgy and forward-thinking marketing department. This is a positive viral opportunity that other brands would kill for.

Society collapses and there is still going to be power and water? Man are they in for a shock.

Yeah, this is a Sundance "official selection" film, all right. Only half way through a nine minute video, I was fighting drowsiness.

There's a gun right there in the still-frame. Shouldn't you be foaming at the mouth about that?
