Shaun Of The Dead Stuff

Shaun of the DeadIt’s flesh-eatingly amazing how Shaun of the Dead, a British dark comedy zombie movie released in 2005, continues to embed itself into contemporary pop culture as easily as a bite wound applied by the undead. Besides being one of the all-time coolest and funniest living dead movies (I’d give the same distinction to Zombieland/2009, even though I wasn’t asked to star in it), Shaun of the Dead, a wickedly humorous metaphor for the downtrodden working class, continues to show up in countless media references, Top 10 lists and even grocery lists (sorry, mine).

Making the effortless leap to models/figurines and outerwear, you can now get a 12″ talking Shaun of the Dead action figure that utters stuff like “I don’t think I’ve got it in me to shoot my flatmate, my mum, and my girlfriend all in the same evening.” While I can relate, I don’t think I’d have much problem doing the opposite, especially on hangover days (Tuesdays through Sundays).

Shaun of the DeadThe detailing is pretty sweet, as is the $37.00 price (though free would be even sweeter). You may as well get the official Shaun of the Dead shirt while you’re at it, priced at a fetching $17.99. Buy ’em both at EntertainmentEarth.com or Amazon.com. I prefer EE as I’m allergic to corporate profiteering.

Another bit of dialogue when you push the button: “How’s that for a slice of fried gold?” I don’t know what that means, but it sounds cool enough for me buy the thing.

I’m such a movie tie-in whore.
