Attack of the Zombie Tapas in Ling Magazine


View larger.

We were recently tipped off to an article in an in-flight magazine that's a bit more risque than your usual "best tacquerias of Austin" spread. Ling, the magazine for low-cost Catalan carrier Vueling, published a May 2009 pictorial "El Ataque de las Tapas Zombies," featuring models taken to untimely ends by chorizo, baby octopus, and patatas bravas. It's a bold move for an in-flight magazine — so bold, in fact, that the magazines were pulled from the airline soon after the release.

Reads the copy:

... tapas, which, after prolonged storage in badly refrigerated displays, have experienced changes in their genetic code and, finding themselves bloodthirsty, have started to rebel against the human race... The authorities have placed the entire city of Madrid under quarantine. Citizens are advised not to leave the house during meal times and to fasten their fridges with insulating tape.
