Default Zombie Industries Bleeding Target Publicity Stunt

Zombie Industries maker of the shooting zombie targets has pulled a confusing publicity stunt to help sell its controversial products, the bleeding target. Zombie Industries is claiming on its website that its redesigned female "ex" mannequin, which bleeds when a bullet hits, is "Feminist Approved thanks to the Huffington Post." Zombie Industries is also offering a 20 percent ******** on the bleeding target to customers who enter "HUFF13" at checkout.

Zombie Industries CEO Roger Davis told HuffPost that the shout-out was a way to "poke fun" at the Internet newspaper after its coverage of the company over the last few months. The mentioning of HuffPost next to the product is not meant to insinuate that the news organization actually endorsed the item, he added. "I think that your coverage helped bring to light the sensitivity of abused women and the travesty of it, so that brought attention to it and we decided to be sensitive to the market," Davis said.
