The zombies are here! The zombies are here!

The Angry Birds display last year

Seattle’s iconic Space Needle has been taken over by those marauding zombies from PopCap Games, which today is releasing  “Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time.” The PR stunt got rolling this morning, and continues with other activities at the Space Needle, including autograph sessions and photo ops with the zombies and a Champagne toast.

As we noted yesterday, this is not the first time that a gaming company has used the Space Needle for a product launch. Angry BIrds took over the landmark last year for an odd performance art display to promote its Angry Birds Space game.

Which PR stunt do you like better?
