There are plenty of zombies in PopCap's hit game Plants vs. Zombies, but one of them is being changed. Apparently, Michael Jackson's estate no likey the resemblance of the "dancing zombie" to the late King of Pop. A PopCap representative explained the situation.
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.
Instead of looking Thriller-esque, the "dancing zombie" will instead be disco-themed.
Crisis averted, America.
