Yesterday 28 year old, Gilbert Hornby, died because of a video game he played. Gilbert was a huge fan of the game ZombiU on the Wii U and yesterday he celebrated his favorite game being re-released on Xbox One. Overjoyed by having a second copy with higher resolution, Gilbert played for 8 hours straight. After that, our story takes a turn for the worst. Gilbert was found dead 4 hours later, but how and what does Zombi have to do with it? Stay tuned after our short commercial break-
Gilbert was an nice man. Yes he loved his video games too much, but he was always kind to others. This kindness would soon take a turn for the worst. At persicely 9pm, August 18th, Gilbert would be the victim of a video game gone bad.
After 8 solid hours of playing Zombi on the Xbox One, Gilbert went out to get a bite to eat. Little did he know, he was about to die horribly. While walking to the local Subway sandwich shop and passing a Geico billboard, Gilbert came upon a horde of zombies trying to cross the busy street. Being the good samaritan he is, Gilbert decided to help the poor zombies across the road. Granted, he felt obligated to help them because of his countless hours of murdering them in a video game. His big heart and guilt got the better of him.
As Gilbert held out his hand to help the rotting people, they quickly pounced on him and started eating his flesh. Blood stained the streets as Gilbert smiled and thanked the zombies for eating him so politely. It was a slow death. Some of the zombies had lost their teeth so they had to gum Gilbert to death. Luckily, some zombies brought steak knives and forks to help the toothless. 8 hours later Gilbert died.
Video games kill! If Gilbert didn’t play video games and felt bad for zombies being mistreated, he might have brought his shotgun or chainsaw with him. He didn’t and he died because of his clouded judgement from a video game. We all can learn from Gilbert by not taking 15 minutes out of his day to get cheaper insurance with Geico. He couldn’t afford insurance for his car so he could just run the zombies over. Trust me, 15 minutes could save your life… Geico!
