Plants vs Zombies: Goodbye Dancing Zombie

Players of the all too popular game Plants versus Zombies regardless of platform should be familiar with this guy, the Dancing Zombie. The amusing (yet annoying) zombie that calls out 4 of his pals to dance their way to eating your brainsssss..

Although the game does says that any resemblance between Dancing Zombie and any persons, living or otherwise is purely coincidental, it seems like fans and family of the late King of Pop doesn’t seem to think it’s amusing anymore. As per PopCap’s announcement, Dancing Zombie is undergoing a redesign following complaints from the Michael Jackson estate.

Here’s that statement from PopCap:

“The Estate of Michael Jackson objected to our use of the ‘dancing zombie’ in PLANTS vs. ZOMBIES based on its view that the zombie too closely resembled Michael Jackson. After receiving this objection, PopCap made a business decision to retire the original ‘dancing zombie’ and replace it with a different ‘dancing zombie’ character for future builds of PLANTS vs. ZOMBIES on all platforms. The phase-out and replacement process is underway.”

The new Dancing Zombie will be disco-themed and has yet to be introduced to the Steam version of the game.
