We could zombiefy reviewers, tricksters and those seeking sponsorship and displaying their zombie’d photos on the website and social channels. We could take new and established premium e juices with living attributes or mascots and re-brand them as dead zombie versions. We could reach out to a true zombie community by contacting pro vaping zombie genre actors/actresses, writers, directors and producers to support the Zombie advocacy.
