For our latest zombie album, Aim for the Head we created a digital booklet  filled with tips on how to survive the zombie apocalypse. You can get your hands on our survival guide by downloading the album here for a bargain for £1.79 ! Not to mention 18  fantastic zombie scores from our favourite zombie films !

Our booklet got us thinking about our own plans to survive the zombie apocalypse. We asked around the office to see what everyone had in mind for the zombie apocalypse. We’ve rated each plan out of five. You can read them below:

Osh

Director

Recruit Tony Jaa, Jason Statham, The Rock to form a kick ass Zombie fighting squad and solve the problem in under 90 minutes.

Verdict:

We think 90 minutes is a little optimistic. Without a more detailed plan of attack this plan comes across more as fantasy than fighting talk.

Aine

Music Director

Ok so here’s the plan… My Zombie survival plan is similar to that of Woody Harrelson’s character in Zombieland. I have sourced an armoured car service in England, once I get my armoured car I will of course kit it out a little further with a snow plow.. obviously to plow down the zombies! You’re welcome world !

Verdict:

Love the idea of the snow plough but with fuel being a precious commodity your moving fortress could leave you a sitting duck.

Agatha

Music Director

Withheld plan. She doesn’t want anyone disrupting her survival chances.

Verdict:

We’re a little worried about what Agatha might have planned that she didn’t want to share with us.

 I’m going with the wait 28 days plan for it all to blow over.  I’m going to be waiting somewhere cosy, with supplies, like a treehouse.  A really cool treehouse in a tree with no lower branches just in case the zombies learn to climb.  When I see them coming I’m going to zipwire out of my bedroom window for a mile, home alone-style and then snip the wire.  In my treehouse I will have an axe, twinkies, pillows and all the Harry Potter books.  🙂

Verdict:

The zip wire swung it for us. Awesome plan.

1. FIRST THINGS FIRST……. family? NO! I have to make sure I’m stocked up on food, I get hungry quite quickly, especially around mid afternoon, so emptying the fridge of all contents is paramount to me not getting grouchy during my zombie apocalypse.

2. Save the family?….. not yet, I have to make sure my phone is charged, because I’m not travelling around with no music, and I’ll be needing some sort of angry birds situation to do whilst hiding.

3. Okay save the fami… NO! I’ve got to let the dog out in the garden before I leave otherwise she’ll pee everywhere!

4. Leave the house in search of family, attaching numerous amounts of oversized cutlery to my car to make some sort of super zombie volkswagon polo battering ram! Filling the boot with weaponry (making sure Daisy is strapped in comfortably, with the window down a little bit but not enough for her to stick her head out….dangerous)

5. Pick up each family member and girlfriend

6. The car is now too small, so to avoid pins and needles we change to jeep….which was sat on the side of the road….with the keys in it……and fuel.

7. We would have to make our way to a police station  in search of guns (with silencers) and batons and stuff, and stop off at the services due to my brother ‘having a small bladder’

8. Go in search of somewhere that we could use as a fortress, somewhere high. preferably castle like. With turrets where we would practice using our bow an arrows.

9. Survive the zombie apocalypse comfortably.

Verdict:

Looking after the dog gets a big thumbs up, waiting for your phone to charge could waste valuable escape time. Buy a solar charger, portable and practical !

1. Run away from Kate*

2. Find a tree house on airbnb.com and move in with a few friends

3. The tree will provide fruit for food

4. The tree will also be beside a fresh water lake which we can drink from by lowering a bucket and string…

Verdict:

Aside from step no.1, this is a well thought out plan with defence, food & water and who you’ll spend the apocalypse with all being addressed.

Head of Design

1. Stock up on Cornettos (and a cool box)

2. Hide under the bed

Verdict:

We like this plan but we’re worried that there’s no liquid refreshment on hand. Also didn’t you hear that monsters live under the bed ?

Put on my nicest poncho and grab my samurai sword. Meet up with Daryl Dixon and spend the rest of my days having squirrel BBQs while consistently winning zombie kill of the week.

Verdict:  

I let the office vote on my plan as awarding myself five thumbs up seemed a bit unfair. They gave me three thumbs up as they said having Daryl Dixon on my team was cheating.

We’d love to hear your zombie survival plans ! Email us at info@theeightysixthfloor.com and we’ll post your replies on the blog !

*This stems from a discussion of The Walking Dead episode when Shane shot Otis. I said it was a logical choice… I am now banned from the Office’s Survival group. Unfair decision I think.
