PopCap Games, the veritable genius’ behind Plants vs. Zombies and time sucking Peggle have a very special job opportunity at their Irish offices this year. The worldwide leader in casual games has just announced a slew of new positions, including ones for a ‘sunflower’ and ‘zombie’...
That’s right, you (yes you!) could help promote one of the finest games ever crafted by the hands of man by dressing up a strange costume and taking on the roles of the arch-nemeses stars of PopCap’s hugely popular Plants vs. Zombies. The job descriptions involve bringing the undead to life and sunshine to the masses by playing the beloved game characters in real-life.
While zombies are renowned for their love of brains, PopCap has noted that it is not a requisite for the job. Similarly, applicants for the sunflower role will not be expected to produce sunshine – though this would be an advantage given Ireland’s temperamental climate.
Cathy Orr, PopCap’s senior director of international PR said, “When it came to casting the Plants vs. Zombies characters, we decided that rather than stick to a traditional promotional agency route, it makes sense for us to cast the net wider and go anywhere and everywhere to make sure we get the right cultural fit. It is a fun opportunity for the right individuals to showcase their acting talents, create some buzz and most of all, have fun!”
Closing date for entries is 15th June 2011. Interested parties should send their C.V., a brief cover note along with any supporting photos and/or videos illustrating why they are the perfect candidate for the job roles to firstname.lastname@example.org
