Zombies are about to take over Augusta - and Barclay Bishop will be joining in. She and several others to include, Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver, will be trying to escape zombies!
It's a spoof off of what the hit show on Discovery Channel "Mythbusters" did a few weeks ago.
The idea is to see if humans, would survive a zombie apocalypse. One at a time, the contestants will have fake brains attached to them and they'll have to run through dozens of people acting like zombies. The goal is to make it from one side of 7th street parking lot to the other, without getting your brain eaten.
One of those contestants who thinks he's more than prepared is Augusta Mayor, Deke Copenhaver.
"You know, I have a lot of faith in my ability to escape zombies. You know I'm pretty fast, zombies are generally slow. You know, nothing against our zombie community, I think they're great... But I think I can outrun them," said Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver.
"Have you been training for this?" asked Barclay Bishop, WJBF reporter.
"Um, ya, extensively. I've been to different zombie infested areas throughout the city. Run through, haven't had my brain stolen yet, or anything so I think I'm pretty good," answered Mayor Copenhaver.
And if you want to be part of it - they're still looking for people to come out and act like zombies.
"We need them to look like Zombies," said Katie Cason. "We need them to be the grossest, just come out all in your zombie attire, your best zombie attire. And they're actually going to try and snatch the brains of the local celebs who are coming out."
If you're interested in being a zombie, email Katie Cason at KCason@arccc.com. You'll be asked to be at the James Brown Arena's 7th street parking lot at 6pm tonight. You'll be entered for a chance to win tickets to the live show "Mythbusters: Behind The Myths" tour, coming to the Bell Auditorium, Thursday, December 19th.
