Two Words that Don’t Mix: Zombies and Hyundai

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.

  1. I dunno…my Elantra is a TANK. It’s taken some pretty severe impacts and it barely has a scratch on it. The cars unfortunate enough to run into my Elantra have had to been towed away…I am confident in it’s abilities to run through a crowd of zombies. Where can I get these modifications done?

  2. This is the worst car you could ever want when fighting zombies. Spikes are a terrible idea since they just weigh the car down and act as traps that will actually keep zombies stuck to your car. The spikes on the wheels were nice on chariots, but doing it now will probably just lead to damage to your axle and tie rods.
