Brand New Buttons and a Long-Lost ZSA!!! - 04.05.18
Want to kill clowns but you don't want to get your hands or your clothes dirty, per se?!? Now YOU can support the makers of KILL GIGGLES by sporting this brand new stylish button everywhere you go. Perfect for jean jackets or any other keen fashion choice, make sure you head on over to the Mad Ones Films Store and get one, or six, before they're all gone!!!
And so it was while dusting off the shelves in the Mad Ones Films video vaults when we were redesigning our web site that we "rediscovered" this previously forgotten gem from the "Zombie Service Announcement" Series (or ZSAs). Created back when the Mad Ones were still whiskey wet behind the ears in 2008, it was thanks to the machinima-making machinations of Ken Randall that this entry in the ZSAs even exists, and answers the age-old question of "What Would Video Game Jesus Do" when it comes to being trapped in a zombie movie. So dig it like a grave kids, it might just save your life on this Throwback Thursday.
