The response sounds sincere enough. I’m trying not to be cynical, but I’m a little skeptical.

Let’s face it: they’re a gun range in 2013 America. It’d be ludicrous to think that a chunk of their clientele doesn’t think that Obama/the government/liberals are trying to take their guns away.

And there is no denying at this point of who the Rocky Zombie was based on.

I’m trying to give Gilbert Indoor Range the benefit of the doubt, but it’s getting tough to believe that they weren’t aware of who the dummy looked like.

To be sure this is concerning. Shocking even. If indeed there is gambling occurring here, it will be stopped immediately. ///

I am a long time Romero Zombie fan - but ever since right wing goobers latched onto it as a stand in for their paranoid end times fears (totally missing the anti-consumerism and radicalism of Romero) I cringe over such zombie events.

Romero’s start came out of a storefront studio on the South Side of Pittsburgh. His slasher flick ‘big break’ was filming Mr. Rogers’ appendectomy (or gall bladder) for WQED.

re: #4 Decatur Deb

I did not know that. I recall he was making commercials for TV.

Anyway, I actually was never into the Italian zombie movies which were all gore and no story.

Romero’s zombie movies touched on American life and the fears around it (it is not sustainable a lifestyle, consumerism, racism, etc) and they are the only horror movies I like - I am more of a sci-fi fan and was never into horror movies per say (unless there was a sci-fi element like Invasion of the Body Snatchers).

Wiki’ed it—it was tonsils.

re: #6 Decatur Deb

Ever read Roger Ebert’s 1967 movie review of “Night of the Living Dead”?

[Link: rogerebert.suntimes.com…]

What fascinates me about this is that something like this movie was never seen before - sure there were similar such movies but nothing like it. I like looking into a snapshot of when the “old world” confronts the “new world” and is gobsmacked and has no idea what it is looking at or how to process it.

I get that sense from Ebert’s review.

I’m massively skeptical that nobody’s ever pointed it out, especially since we saw forums with people pointing it out.

I find it impossible to believe they never noticed the likeness.

I’m quite sure the text you received has been in their “stock reply” box for just such a query.

No, I don’t think so. I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt.

I replied to them with some examples of the video comments and discussion form posts from 2011 when the figure was first released showing that the likeness was noticed.

I got this reply:

Thanks for the feeds,

It appears most of these comments if not all are from anti-Obama supporters and want to input the likeness to our President, some people just can not get over the elections. We will keep our ears open during Zombie Night and if we hear anything that they are shooting the target because of the likeness, they will be taken off or we will make some type of change on the target (we have over 200 in stock and can’t return them).

Thanks again for bringing this to our attention.

They are right that the comments are from anti’s. I believe that, of course many people who did not comment still agree with the interpretation of the likeness and drive its popularity.
