If you ask me, there's a disturbing imbalance between tricks and treats at Halloween. We have way too many treats, and not nearly enough tricks. Who can restore balance to this horrifyingly sweet holiday? A couple of brave pranksters are doing their part with the zombie pizza prank.
Here's how it works. A barker stands on a sidewalk offering free pizza samples. There's a table next to him with a pizza box. Passers-by stop and lift the lid of the box and...
EW! A zombie pops out! Gross and scary. And it never gets old. I could watch people scream and back away all day. I love that one time when the girl seems to be onto the joke, so the zombie pops out from under the table. Who knew the undead could be so clever.

They'll never be hungry for pizza again. Until tomorrow. If they live that long... mwa ha ha ha ha!
Okay, but seriously. I think the experience of expecting pizza and then seeing a creepy zombie pop out at me would put me off pizza for a while. You know, by association. I think I'd just keep seeing that face instead of delicious melted cheese and tomato sauce, you know? But it's pizza, so... I'd get over it eventually.
Anyway, hilarious idea. I almost want to replicate the same thing in front of my home this year during trick or treating -- there are way too many people on my block giving out treats and too few pulling tricks!
