Associated Press – A Montana television station’s regular programming was interrupted by news of a zombie apocalypse.
The Montana Television Network says hackers broke into the Emergency Alert System of Great Falls affiliate KRTV and its CW station Monday.
KRTV says on its website the hackers broadcast that “dead bodies are rising from their graves” in several Montana counties.
The alert claimed the bodies were “attacking the living” and warned people not to “approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous.”
So a group of hackers went into a tv station…in Montana…to broadcast “dead bodies rising from their graves?” Seems like a weird place to strike, no?
I’m on the fence here on which is more strange: the message they sent out or trying to warn people of a zombie apocalypse. According to Google, zombie’s are defined as: “A soulless corpse said to be revived by witchcraft, esp. in certain African and Caribbean religions.” Soooo that’s what going on in Montana? Well thanks for the heads up guys.
Breaking news: the Easter bunny will be canceling the egg hunt this year. C’mon now.
Not only was this move so unnecessary, but it was selfish as fuck. You know what one of the worst things in the world is? The fucking Emergency Broadcast System going off in the middle of a game or show you’re watching. Not only does it interrupt your shit like a nagging 3 year old but I’m convinced it will make you go deaf in 2 minutes flat.
Leave zombies to The Walking Dead. Keep practicing on Montana and all of it’s 400,000 residents.
