Cue Michael Jackson\'s \"Thriller\" for this one.
Just as we suspected, Hyundai Asia Resources was cooking up some sales promotion for the Tucson when the company unveiled its zombie survival machine based on the crossover SUV. Fabricated by Atoy Customs, the zombie-fighting Tucson has been going around Metro Manila lately, supposedly to mark the premiere of The Walking Dead\'s fourth season.
According to Hyundai, from October 19 to 31, the Tucson can be had for as low as P123,000--down payment, we presume--if you drop by \"zombiefied Hyundai dealerships and themed malls during this period.\" Drop-dead financing deals--as Hyundai calls it--huge discounts and surprise giveaways await customers.
\"Hyundai is globally recognized for its game-changing moves in the motoring world,\" HARI president and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo said in a statement. \"We take pride in being closely identified with non-automotive brands that exhibit that same fearless, edgy appeal. We expect Hyundai to broaden its platform for dialogue with the young, energetic market--as exemplified by the massive global fan base of this phenomenal TV series. Of course, the Philippine market is a big part of that. We\'ve been bitten.\"
You have until Halloween to get bitten yourself.
