In Good Taste? Live Ammunition Sold for Zombie Killing

I never thought I'd actually see the day when a weapons manufacturer would would use zombies as a tool to sell its merchandise.

Check out this commercial for Hornady's ZOMBIE MAX brand of ammunition. By all indications, this is a real product.

I don't know how I feel about this. A part of me is amused that zombies have reached this level of public consciousness. On the other hand, I also think that real weapons and bullets should be treated and presented to the public in a less glorified and friviolous way. This uncomfortably blends the line between fiction and reality.

What do you think?
