A Japanese tyre company called Fukuoko Autoway have decided to use zombies to sell their product, in an advert that is sure to make you jump – or at least scare you into buying what they have on offer. The advert begins quietly enough, with friends ploughing their car though a snowstorm. Suddenly a ‘hitch-hiker’ in the middle of the road forces the driver to slam on the brakes – and this is where the horror begins. This is no hitch-hiker, oh no. It’s a zombie traveller who presses her face up against the glass, scaring the screaming driver out of his seat as his passengers whimper beside him.

And that my friends, is why you need Fukuoko Autoway, the trustiest tires around  – so you don’t bump into travelling zombies.

Just to prove that this is really scary stuff, the advert now carries a health warning which can be loosely translated as: ‘Not for the faint of heart video. Please refrain from watching the content if any of the following applies to you: Have any mental or physical health concern and may have to see a doctor regularly.’ And in case you didn’t quite get the message, they add this disclaimer at the end: ‘We shall not be liable for any injuries, illness, and damages claimed to be caused by watching the contents either.’

It’s taken so long for us to learn what tyres perform best in a zombie apocalypse – but we sure are glad the information is finally out in the public domain.
