Zombies as popular in commercials as they are in movies and TV shows

Zombies usually are used for scares in movies and TV shows. But in commercials, they’re used for laughs.
The living dead are frightful in “World War Z” and “The Walking Dead,” but are funny in recent TV ads.
Here are links to 15 ads using zombies. They’re posted on sister site One Stop Video and curated from YouTube.
I’ll lead off with the funny zombie commercials for Sprint’s “unlimited for life guarantee” on talk, text and data plans.
Other sets look at zombies in car commercials (Ford Escape, Honda Civic, DieHard batteries), junk food commercials (Snickers, Doritos, Starburst), tech commercials (Toshiba notebooks, Microsoft Windows 8), and commercials for FedEx, Axe and other products.
