‘Mythbusters’ testing zombie myths, calls on fans to volunteer

By Daniel S Levine,

If you have ever wanted to be a zombie - more specifically, if you’ve ever wanted to be part of zombie experiments - you can, thanks to Discovery’s Mythbusters. The show’s team is looking for volunteers to help the team test out all the ways to kill zombies and survive an apocalypse.

The team announced on their official Twitter page that they need hundreds of zombies who are over 18. A form was posted as well for anyone really interested. Questions include “Are you able to come in your own zombie makeup?” and “Do you have any experience being a zombie?”

Mythbusters will be filming the zombie volunteers in the San Francisco Bay area from late January to early February. There will also be a second wave filmed later in February.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the Mythbusters team will be testing the best weapons to use to kill zombies, in case you want to know if that crossbow or machete is a good idea.

The show needs a total of 300 zombies and considering that the show has 1.2 million Twitter followers, that shouldn’t be too hard. The episode will be included in their 10th season on Discovery.

Mythbusters stars Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage. Hopefully, they won’t be using cannonballs to test on the volunteer zombies.
