The Walking Dead comic has spawned many tie-ins and spinoffs—a TV show, a videogame, toys, busts and now ... a swimsuit calendar. You heard right. The undead are here, and they're ready to give you the bedroom eyes.
It was a South African ad agency that saw the not-so-obvious draw in putting zombies in bikinis. They certainly seemed to have pleased Africa's version of FHM Magazine, which wrote in promotion of the calendar, "[It] pulls together two of FHM's favourite things: bikini babes and zombies. Now, if they'd just been holding a beer this video would have been three for three!"
We were starting to wonder if FHM readers were necrophiliacs, undead themselves or both until we actually caught a glimpse of the photo shoot.
Sure, some of them are a little dead behind the eyes (and in front of the eyes), but otherwise, the focus is far more on the bikini-model angle than it is on the shambling-dead aspect.
Yes, it's silly. Sure, it would have been funnier if one of them had an arm off, but it's hard to argue with free. So if it's the marriage of corpse hunting and beach bodies you crave, we say, why not? The only person it's going to hurt is the entirety of human civilization, after all.
