Hyundai Elantra Coupe makes The Walking Dead appearance
If you keep track of good TV, you might have caught The Walking Dead series, a gritty realistic take on the zombie apocalypse theme. Few of you would realise though that the show is actually based on a comic book series. The 100th issue of the comics was just commemorated with this Hyundai Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine.
If you watched the TV show closely, you’d have noticed that somewhere along the line, they seem to pick up a Hyundai Tucson, of all things, to travel the zombie wilderness. That is part of a product-placement deal with Hyundai. Now Hyundai has proliferated the comics as well, and a hand-drawn Hyundai Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine actually makes an appearance in the books, as cheesy as the premise might be. Couldn’t they find anything brawnier to turn into a tank?
The killer coupe, first shown at the U.S. “Comic Con” event, will likely show up in future seasons of the TV show and up the cheese factor in the name of subliminal advertising.
