‘Dead Island’ Meets ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and More Video ParodiesBy Justin Massoud
The recent trailer for zombie action game “Dead Island” struck emotional chords using three time-tested formulas: an undead little girl, sad music and a high brow concept — in this case, a zombie attack on a family played in reverse. However, it didn’t take long for viewers to get over their empathy and begin parodying the video, setting the somber song from the trailer to other videos played backwards. Here are some of our favorites.
