PopCap Games Hiring Official Zombie and Sunflower


Do you wake up in the morning and spread sunshine and/or disease? PopCap Games has the job for you.

If you’ve ever been to a gaming-related convention in the past couple of years, chances are you’ve seen someone cosplaying as a zombie with a traffic cone on his head or as a sunflower from PopCap Games’ Plants vs. Zombies. They’re the type of characters that bring attention to themselves. Recognizing this, PopCap is now hiring for an official company zombie and sunflower.

PopCap Dublin put out a press release hoping to find the perfect candidate for each role. They could have gone the professional actor route, but fans of Plants vs. Zombies are probably much better able to exhibit the nuances of spitting out sunshine and shambling while muttering: “Braiiinnns.”

The official zombie and sunflower will be hired to travel to events throughout the year, where PopCap says they’ll be expected to “bring the undead to life and sunshine to the masses.” If you think you can handle that, and live in or near Dublin, Ireland, check out the press release here for more information.

How much do zombies get paid per year nowadays anyway?
