RE5 Promotion: Gather Body Parts, Win African Vacation

Oh, those wacky, wacky British.

Capcom is really into these launch events for Resident Evil 5; they're teaming up with GameStop to throw a party in San Francisco tomorrow, where the game's two producers and the voice actors for Chris and Sheva will be in attendance. But this one takes the cake: evidently, zombies have stumbled their way through a small part of London, leaving a trail of rotting body limbs in their wake. Now, if you want to peruse the streets for these fallen body parts, you could win a trip to Africa! ...yes, you read that correctly. You simply need to register in order to receive clues as to where these remains are, and you just have to gather up as many as you can and head on over to Westminster Bridge by 11 a.m. Now, once you're there, hold the parts over your head and yell "Kijuju!" at the top of your lungs, which is when the watchers will approach and assess your haul. They will award points for what you've found: 2 points for arms, 2 points for legs, 3 points for torsos, and 5 points for a head. The more points you get, the better off you'll be; the one with the most points wins the vacation.

Everything starts at 9 a.m. so you've got two hours to find the parts, which will be scattered around various locations near Trafalgar Square. However, if you find a part that isn't fake...that's not part of the game. Really. Find a police officer. Fast.

That's just...I don't know. Is there a word that mixes sick, morbid, and awesome?

I really wish they would do something this creative in the states. But, I guess if you were able to get enough people together you could pull something like this off with some friends.

Wouldn't be a prize trip to Africa though

Anyone been present at a real zombie event? It's great, swarms of people get geeked out as zombies and just run the streets, takeover clubs, etc. I've seen it but I still have just enough self respect not to participate. Nobody dies though, unless it's maybe of alcohol poisoning ;)

They are called Zombie Pub Crawls. They dress, act, eat, and dance like zombies (to Thriller of course) But it isn't even on Halloween or anything, just something groups do.
