Zombies have terrible teeth. It’s a negative stereotype, but one based on countless examples. I don’t think the walking dead’s insurance plan includes comprehensive dental coverage.
So the American Dental Association (ADA) and Plants vs. Zombies developer PopCap teamed up for the Stop Zombie Mouth campaign. Just because the undead have plaque-covered brain-chompers doesn’t mean we all have to.
As part of the promotion, PopCap printed a limited run of one-million free Plants vs. Zombies trading cards. The cards feature characters from the game as well as anthropomorphized versions of plaque, decay, and tooth rot. It’s enough to make me want to stop writing this and go brush my teeth again.
Check out some of the cards:
PopCap and the ADA distributed the packs to participating dentists around the country. A code for a free download of the full PC/Mac versions of Plants vs. Zombies is also tucked away with each collection of cards.
