There is something weird about over 4,000 people dressing up like zombies that is even a bit odder when it's not even Halloween. On the July 4th weekend, 4,277 people dressed like zombies showed up at Freemont Outdoor Movies to set a Guinness World Record for the largest zombie walk on the planet.
The zombie walk was sponsored by Xbox 360 and I am sure was tied into the Left 4 Dead franchise in some way. The previous record was 894 zombies in a walk held in Monroeville, PA.
"We had heard about the World Record last year unofficially captured in Grand Rapids and really believed that Seattle deserved the opportunity to be the 'Zombie Capital of the World', we are more than just coffee and grunge music, we love our movies too, so a zombie event was a 'no-brainer'.
