Halloween can be a dangerous day. Aside from dodging drunk college students who are just looking for an excuse to dress up half-naked, you have to worry about supernatural hazards detrimental to your health. Things like zombies, werewolves and vampires are said to run amok on the last day of October, and luckily OnStar will have knowledge of their whereabouts thanks to its Monster Dodger service.
By pushing the Blue Button on Halloween, users can ask their OnStar Advisor on the other line the location and radius of the nearest monster, and hopefully dodge the potential threat that looks to ruin your evening of candy and spiked cider. Additionally, OnStar would like to remind everyone that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has pieced together instructions to build a zombie apocalypse preparation kit, should such a disaster happen in our lifetimes.
We don’t think the government agency’s kit is any good, as it doesn’t tell you which weapons you should stock up on that carry the best zombie slaying potential, but rather that you should worry more about carrying your driver’s license — probably so that strangers can identify your remains after helplessly defending yourself against the undead due to your lack of a shotgun.
