“I saw us having kids… sipping champagne… and running w/ our 3 legged border collie on a sunset beach.” – ManvsZombie on Twitter

Seeing as it is a slow news day, I thought I would share something cool. A good friend of mine sent me a link to the chronicling of the zombie apocalypse. Don’t think that’s true? You’d be wrong. A man named Gus (@manvszombies on Twitter) from Miami, Florida is in the shit. And he needs your help. He’s someone who has woken up in the middle of a world filled with the undead, and he’s Tweeting through what we can only assume are the final days of his life.

Normally a personality such as this on Twitter wouldn’t be notable. But this is clearly a special case. Not only has this gentleman captured the essence of a zombie outbreak, he’s also tweeting with pictures. It is one of the most creative, and committed uses of Twitter as a means for entertainment (and not just talking about Twitter) that we’ve seen thus far. Right up there with Fake Michael Bay, in my opinion. It reminds me of the brilliance of the birds-eye story told in Max Brooks’ book World War Z. A fun, but thoughtful take on the zombie genre.

Who knows, maybe this guy will get a movie deal. Or maybe he’ll be eaten by the undead. Either way, I’m following along.
