"fake zombie" pranksters

MIAMI, Fl. – After the news of the zombie-like attack in Miami just over a week ago, the Centers for Disease Control was prompted to formally announce that there is no known “zombie virus”.

It was on May 26 that a naked, “zombie-like” man  was found biting off parts of another man’s face. The attack was stopped only when police shot and killed the attacker, 31-year-old Rudy Eugene.

According to the Huffington Post, “zombie apocalypse” was Google’s third most popular search term six days after the story broke.

Helping feed the fear of a spreading zombie-like disease was the story that followed just days after 21-year-old Alexander Kinyua of Maryland who allegedly admitted to dismembering his roommate and then eating his heart and brain.

Within the same week, the story broke of the Canadian porn actor who is accused of killing and dismembering a man.

The scare prompted some pranksters in Miami to post this video where at the end, the mischievous fake zombie gets the tables turned on him.

According to the Blaze, CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield has reported that one of the citizens chasing the fake zombie appears to be carrying a gun. The “fake zombie” was apparently able to scream to the crowd that this was just a prank. Nobody was hurt.
