Viral Wednesday #1 : Introduction and Zombie Apocalypse

Hello my fellow minions!

My name is Akmal Fikri and I will be starting my own weekly series (which I need to fulfill because of my KPI) about what’s the latest thing going viral. I should have started last week, but I was too busy lying around answering emails for clients and poking other peoples’ noses.

Viral Wednesday will probably be an article, a youtube video…anything as long as it’s viral.

Before we start this series, I would like to define: What is viral?

Googled it and I have this for an answer : An image, video, advertisement etc. that is circulating rapidly on the Internet. So technically, anything that is related to the internet that has been circulated rapidly, is viral. Offline content is not counted.

This week we will be looking at something I think you guys already know,
the Zombie Apocalypse

Is it true? Is it a hoax? Here are some news video clippings related to the zombie incident :

‘Experts’ blamed “bath salts” as the reason people are eating other people’s faces. Bath salts is a drug that will cause ‘Users to experience extreme paranoia, elevated heart rate and blood pressure, extremely high body temperature, sleep deprivation, vivid hallucinations, enhanced strength, hostility and aggression‘ (taken from http://www.wptv.com/dpp/news/state/miami-zombie-causeway-cannibal-attack-by-rudy-eugene-the-start-of-bath-salts-upswing-experts-say ).

And now there is another twist to the incident where there are claims saying that the real reason of these incidents are that the so-called ‘zombies’ are staff of a former lab where they are testing a virus – a virus that can cause ‘zombie like’ behavior. Is this true? If so, why wouldn’t there be more information?
Are we ready for the zombie apocalypse?
