Lucio Fulci’s Zombie vs. Shark used to sell Windows 7?!

WTF.  Seriously.  W T F.  If you had told me 20 years ago that my favorite scene from Lucio Fulci’s Zombie (or Zombi 2, if you are in Europe) was going to be used to try and get me to buy a Microsoft Operating System, I might have choked to death on my own laughter.  Turns out I was the idiot, though.  What’s next?  Will we be seeing clips from Dead Alive used to make commercials for custard?

I mean, I guess I should be psyched, right?  But, it never seems to work that way.  It’s like when I first heard that Shins song used in a McDonalds commercial or the Of Montreal song bastardized to make an Outback Steakhouse commercial.  Sure, you are psyched to hear the song and even psyched for the band because they can probably use the bread.  But, now you are unconsciously associating what was one of your favorite things with some bullshit you don’t need and don’t want probably.  Besides, Lucio Fulci is dead.  So, why commercialize his memory?  Did his kids run out of blow or something?  Oof… sorry.  I’m grouchy today, I guess.
