Corn Gets Ready to Rumble in 'Plants Vs. Zombies' Trailer

This Is One Badass Kernel

Published on

Editor's Pick

In this fun trailer for EA's "Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2," a corn cob is called out of porch-sitting retirement and gets ready to take on the zombies -- "Kernel: we need you back."

Harking back to "Rocky" and other famous training montages with a suitably '80s soundtrack, the film shows him preparing to wipe out the zombies in suitably badass style. If you've ever wanted to see corn doing sit-ups, now's your chance.

Peter Martin of Imperial Woodpecker directed the video for San Francisco agency Heat , whose goal for the spot was to tap into the mind of the plants who are fighting to take back the home that is rightfully theirs. It's particulary designed to appeal to kids, with additional work from the campaign going live during the Kids Choice Awards on March 12.
