The connected undead

Looking for zombie love online.

The zombie phenomenon in popular culture has been widespread for some time. But if you need a recent barometer of its popularity just check out the astronomical ratings AMC’s The Walking Dead season premiere recorded. Perhaps it was a matter of time, but we now have an online dating app catering to those seeking zombie love.

The app was created by Vancouver- and Toronto-based Noise Digital, who claim to have “recognized a massive opportunity in the marketplace for a dating service catering to zombie singles.” As far as we can tell it works like this: you photoshop yourself into something resembling a zombie, put the picture online and wait for the chat requests to pour in. The makers intend it for those looking for both lasting love or simply “someone to eat brains with.” The app is available in the iTunes store and soon for Android.
