Zombie celebrities – the other side of famous faces

Everybody knows that celebrities are overpaid and over-rated, so that’s no wonder that when the

zombification “virus” spread all over the world, they were the first to suffer transformations – being at the mercy of some amazing artists imagination. This trend of zombifying celebrities has become very popular, and continues to be appreciated, due to its macabre feeling, because it emphasizes very famous faces in a new mask, showing us what they would look as the undead.
Probably many of you remember the shock when Michael Jackson released his “Thriller” video on December, 1983 and it had influenced people’s culture ever since.

This is it!

In the same way, Rob Zombie has been a zombie addict, intentionally zombifying himself and showing up as undead for the public. Although the resulted images are grotesque, they are also very humorous and that is actually the whole point. They are not only grossing out, but poking fun at pop culture and not only.
Turning celebrities into scary monsters and rotting zombies represents also a little crash in their public image, which they are trying so hard to keep it immaculate.
