This amazing zombie short begins with some poor slob who works at the zoo handing out flyers in a penguin costume, who then becomes bitten by a zombie during an outbreak event. We see his journey from confusion to hunger, with his survival hanging by a thread as those who would destroy him through the dictates of fortune become destroyed themselves, and ultimately decomposition. The penguin costume isn’t funny so much as pathetic, making him stand out against the faceless zombie hordes as an individual, somebody we cannot forget was once a real person. The story is told beautifully and with pathos. Check it out below.
