U.S. government: Americans are ‘killer zombies’…”Find out what the republicans don’t want you to know. Read this now.”
“Do You Hate Obama?”
Mar. 17, 2014
A bloodthirsty zombie version of the Uncle Sam character bites the neck of a foreign man in a promotional video the Obama administration is using to catch the attention of Pakistani youth.
Voice of America, through a local cable company, currently distributes “Zindagi 360,” a program VOA uses to target young adults in Pakistan, but the U.S. Broadcasting Board of Governors is setting its sights higher.
BBG now is aiming for a Pakistan-wide broadcast of the show, which “focuses on topics that resonate with young people in Pakistan,” such as music and “life in America.”
The topics apparently include the stars-and-stripes-adorned killer-zombie adaptation of Uncle Sam, the traditional personification of the American government.
While the promo clearly is intended to be humorous, if not satirical, BGB is using it as a calling card in its search for a distributor capable of spreading its message.
The video features two Urdu-speaking male and female cast members wearing contemporary, non-ethnic clothing, giddily venturing through what appears to be an American city.
At one point, a bloodied Uncle Sam attacks the male host, sinking his teeth into the young man’s neck. Meanwhile, a Roy Rogers movie poster hangs in the background.
