Plants vs. Zombies 2 Takes Over Seattle!

August 26, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Nerd Topics, YouTube videos by Kristina Horner

The new Plants vs. Zombies game from PopCap came out last week, and being from a native Seattle game company – they celebrated the launch accordingly:

Plants vs. Zombies 2 takes over the Space Needle

Many have said in the past that the Space Needle looks more like a space craft than any sort of human building, and for this short time – they were right! The zombies have left their warning for our poor city, and now all we have left to do is fight back.

And fight back we will! In fact, I started playing Plants vs. Zombies 2 around the time this Space Needle stunt happened, and decided to film the experience for use on my game channel, Team Hypercube. I’m embedding the first video below if you’re interested, and be sure to subscribe to the channel if you want regular updates when new videos go up.


This is one of my favorite new publicity stunts to date. What sort of interesting marketing have you seen in the past that compares to this? Let me know in the comments!

I stock up on sunflowers too! It seems like the safest way to play, haha.
Love it when advertising is super fun like that!

Em says:

That is fantastic marketing! I’ve been playing this game nonstop. I loved the original, but I really like how they added time travel to it. Ever since reading Prisoner of Azkaban, time travel has been one of my favorite things!
