Most of us are veterans of TV product placement these days. I remember watching an entire Smallville episode centered around Kryptonite-laced Stride gum. But some ideas are better than others, and I’m not sure how I feel about a Hyundai Elantra zombie killing machine in an attempted Walking Dead promotion.
I mean, technically you can put spikes on the front of anything and it will look infinitely more badass. You could probably throw some razor blades on a SmartCar and it would look at least a little bit more intimidating. But if this is America, and you’re surrounded by vast stretches of abandoned cars on the freeway, I think you’ve got to go for the truck or SUV over the two dour coupe. Hell, even a Mercedes could probably double as a tank if it needed to.
As much as I loved my old Focus, it’s no class of car to fight zombies, and the Elantra is no exception, now matter how many spikes you may add to it.
