Posted by & filed under Competitions.

What’s the worst that could happen? I can think of a few things, mostly involving hair and Marmite. But that’s really between me and my therapist. But we want to give you, via the wonderful, tasty, delicious folks at Dr Pepper, the chance to win the experience of your dreams. Or, if it’s something that fills you with malignant dread, the stuff of nightmares. Confused? You shouldn’t be. Basically head over to the Dr Pepper Facebook page, tell them how much you love Dr Pepper and several exciting things you can think of to do with their beverage, then you’ll be entered into a grand prize draw. There you have the chance to win a delightful, sedate, warmly comfortable year long membership to English Heritage for two. Enjoy a plethora of stately homes, engaging castles and frothy formal gardens. OR You could win an exhilarating day indoor skydiving for you and a companion. You’ll be blown to ecstasy as you swoop and glide on a huge wind-generating device, replicating all the excitement of skydiving without having to go really high up.

The Wonderful World of Twitter #JournoRequest

Posted by & filed under Media.

Twitter can be used for many wondrous things: veiled threats, overt threats, passive-aggressive threats… But it also an excellent tool for those looking for journalists’ and the like, who try to find unsuspecting rubes to illustrate their article on ‘Why I Smell and I’m Proud Of It’ on the social media network using the #journorequest hashtag. But amongst the desperate, deadline-compromising pleas are some excellent spoofs, pastiches and giggleblips, as well as legitimate ones that are too abstract to be believed. The excitable @Brainmage hurts all of our minds with this superb combination of astro-surrealism and the magically mundane: Can anyone help find an early 20th Century Bellhop who travelled through time in order to battle intergalactic mindviruses? #journorequest — Guy (@Brainmage) March 6, 2013 Some tell a baffling little story all on their own: #journorequest If said Spam Javelin broke in 2 mid-flight, all the better.

Mile High Club: The Sun Has The World’s First Review…

Posted by & filed under News.

Our ‘Luxury Mile High Club’ gets its wings… We’ve had a flurry of interest in our Luxury Mile High Club when we launched, most recently from ITV’s This Morning. To recap, we’re offering a UK first – the once-in-a-lifetime chance to join the Mile High Club in your very own private jet. One booking enquiry came from the UK’s top tabloid (and zombie newspaper of record) The Sun. They asked to get ex-Loaded editor Martin Daubney and his missus booked in pronto to see what all the fuss was about – and, crucially, to answer the question on everybody’s lips: “is it worth five thousand smackers?”. Martin’s verdict? “[It] might not be great for the greens — but by Jove it was great for the groans.” Read the full writeup here and get booked in here. PS. Since you can’t make it out so well in The Sun photos, here’s what their trophy says… Thanks also to Jonathan Pow for the tremendous photographs on the day – take a look at more photos from the shoot here.

New Zombie TV Series: BBC3’s In The Flesh

Posted by & filed under News, Video.

BBC3 are screening a new zombie-themed drama this month. It’s called In The Flesh, and they’ve been kind enough to offer us a preview to share with our zombie-loving hoards. Set after the zombie uprising, In The Flesh tells the story of zombie teenager Kieren, and his return to his family and home town after zombie rehab. Yes, you read right – zombie rehab. Zombies now carry the politically-correct tag ‘PDS sufferers’ (Partially Deceased Syndrome, don’t-cha-know), and the government have passed legislation demanding tolerance and acceptance like any minority group (dead or undead). Here’s the trailer… What do you reckon? Let us know in the comments… In The Flesh is on BBC3 on 17 March at 10pm. Look out for more teasers on Twitter at @BBC3.

How Much is The Zombie Economy Worth? [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

You may think they’re just flabby lumps of reanimated flesh, groaning indiscriminately and frightening villagers. But zombies are also supreme cash generators. Their constant regurgitation in popular culture and wondrous things – like Wish.co.uk’s various zombie experiences – has sent the undead economy booming. In fact, the zombie economy has been worth an astonishing $5.74 billion to the global economy over the past 4 years. They’re all calling it (and by “they”, we mean “us”) the Putrid Pound. And and as more films, books, TV shows and fabulous zombie related experiences are created, the stronger it will become. In fact, according to experts, by 2022 we’ll all be involved in a zombie related industry in one way or another. OK, we made that last fact up…
