Are you sure? i seen it on the BBC and it was not in April I don't think...
O.K thanks.


I don't know if it was an April Fools joke, but it was a joke. The guy responsible is on another forum I frequent.

For those of you who like TZSG, you should check out Max Brooks latest book, World War Z. It is a very cool peice of zombie fiction that is written out as different characters telling their stories about the zombie war.

Yes. I posted the forum for it on here myself.
It was very clever, first surfacing in 2004 i think. Someone took a CNN page and copied it exactly, down to every little link. If any link was clicked on the site, it would take you to the corresponding page on CNN itself, however the URL for the zombie page was actually not a CNN address. The only way to access that page was by clicking a posted link from a different site, there was no links to it on CNN itself. Zombies in Cambodia, you'd think we'd have heard more about it right? original.gif It had me fooled for a few days too.

BBC, i apologise. But yes, that's the very same one! Although the picture has changed. But if you look at the URL it is obviously not actually a BBC page.

Just a very clever joke i'm afraid.

WOW! I thought that it had pretty much been decided that viruses that cause zombification were not real! I never would've thought that the lastest slew of el-cheapo zombie movies would give this "legend" a "New Life".

I wonder if I can catch the "T-Virus" from "Orange Pekoe"? I bet more than one of you googles that one!

From our generations yes, we are all aware of the fiction.
But with each year there is a new generation of childen with wide eyes ready to believe anything that could be considered different to the norm.
This site is a 100% prime example of that.

So true. I wonder how many people actually took the time to notice the date at the top of the story? April 01! I remember one year Pop Sci published an article saying that L.A. county was planning to install giant fans on the mountains nearby to blow all the smog away from the city.

Zombies are not real and they will never be real like in the movies, for reasons that seem obvious to me and others here I'm sure.

This was a very good prank though.... rofl.gif It's amazing how many people buy into April fools jokes.

Anyone who knows how the body works and what happens after death it seems obvious that bringing a corpse back to life is impossible. Although it makes for a good movie it is never going to happen.

Yeah, quite a few bad ones too! Does anyone here remember seeing a little gem called "Redneck Zombies From Hell"? Yeah, a real classic! Ha-ha!

This is probably the 10th time I've linked to this thread, but what ever. laugh.gif

Check out the posts by monarch71 in this thread, it seems pretty convincing to me.
