I’ve been filled with a sense of growing dread watching this series of media clippings and screenshots that has been posted on reddit.com/r/zombies. The series of images shows a snowballing zombie epidemic in social media, personal messages, and news outlets. Check out days 1-6 below.

I can’t help but think this method of storytelling is something of a throwback to some analysis of modern information overload and the zombie pop phenomenon we talked about in 2010. But mostly, I can’t wait to find out where this story is going. I’m going to be following what I hope continue to be daily updates by Vidzilla on reddit.

And don’t forget to update your 2012 preparedness plans. This is getting real.

Note: Check out Day 5, Day 9, and others for secret hidden messages. See reddit threads for spoilers. Could this be a viral marketing campaign? For what?
