There are three things you can count on in life…. death, taxes and….zombies!! OK, maybe not really, but tomorrow we are looking forward to 7:05PM when some of our employees will head over to downtown Buffalo’s Coca-Cola Field for a special FRIGHTdaynightbash with the Buffalo Bisons baseball team. The Bisons will be holding ZOMBIE NIGHT, featuring Terror Technologies, presented by Anthony Baldi & Associates of Ameriprise Financial, with a 7:05 p.m. game start against the Syracuse Chiefs.
The Bisons are hoping to set the Guinness Book record for the most zombies in one place!!! All attendees are welcome to come in costume, but the team will also have “Bloody Mary Hollywood Make Up stations” throughout the concourse for guests to be transformed for the evening and be counted as participating. Auditors from Freed Maxick have volunteered to take an official “Zombie Count” and end up seeing if Bisons fans will get their names in the record books! Pretty cool!
The game will also feature a pre-game Bisons “Happy Hour” at 5:00 p.m. with 14oz Flying Bison craft beers for only $2 and of course post game fireworks. If you’d like to purchase tickets for the game, just click the link below.
In the meantime, we came across this fun article from TIME magazine in mid July. Adam Chodorow, a Professor of Law at Arizona State University, published a research paper titled, “Death and Taxes and Zombies,” which details the significant problems the U.S. government will have regarding tax policy once zombies are on the loose, scavenging for the tasty brains of the living. In the twenty-five-page paper, Professor Chodorow analyzes some of the issues that governments would face if this horror movie scenario were to come to life including “for tax purposes, are zombies dead?” and “can we levy income taxes on the undead?” Pretty fun stuff, and something to think about!
We’ll update you on how the count goes, so stay tuned, and consider attending to help attempt to set the record! You can also check out this cool video from a new viral marketing campaign produced by ad agency Thinkmodo for AMC which asks the question: “Could zombies live among us?”
