Harcos Responds to ZRC

Harcos Labs Responds to Zombie Rights Campaign’s Accusation
Zombie-friendly laboratory discusses newest promotional series

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – April 6, 2011 – In a post published on March 26th, the Zombie Rights Campaign publicly shamed Harcos Laboratories for both their portrayal of zombies in the video series “10 Second Zombie” and their products Zombie Blood Energy Potion and Zombie Jerky. Harcos Laboratories executives are taking the time to correct Zombie Rights Campaign’s outlandish accusations.

“When I saw the Zombie Rights Campaign’s reaction to our series, I was shocked,” said Jon Brence, resident zombie documentarian at Harcos Labs. “I am confident that every video we produce showcases zombies in a realistic and unaltered manner, void of prejudice or ill intent.”

“Braaaaains?” said resident zombie 2315 at Harcos Labs, presumably showing his support for Harcos’s ethical treatment of zombies and fair portrayal of his species plight. Resident zombies 2316 and 2458 espoused similar reactions before being led into a harvesting chamber in the back of Harcos Lab’s Santa Monica facility.

In response to the concern over their treatment of the undead, Harcos Labs is offering to ship a zombie in a box to the Zombie Rights Campaign officers for free, so that they may become educated in the actual behaviors of a real zombie. Harcos also hopes the zombie eats their pets.

“You realize most people shoot them in the face, right? Seriously, that’s not a high bar to get over. We’re practically saints,” said Aaron Rasmussen, co-founder at Harcos Labs. “I am confident that the Zombie Rights Campaign will recognize Harcos Labs as an ethical zombie processing facility once they become more educated about real zombie behavior.”

With an MSRP of $3.99 for a 3.4 fl oz bag, Zombie Blood is available now at harcoslabs.com and at retailers including Hot Topic, ThinkGeek.com, as well as many other major retailers.
