OnStar and CDC team up to help subscribers survive… that is if they’re still alive themselves

GM OnStar Monster Dodger

So OnStar is predicting that the Zombie Apocalypse will be happen during this upcoming Halloween—though not really.

But just in case, OnStar and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have teamed up to create OnStar’s new “Monster Dodger” service. So in your travels, should be worried about running into zombies, campires, werewolves, witches, ghosts and ghouls—you name it—OnStar has made sure to be ready to let you know where you have to go to survive…muahahaha.

“Halloween is a fun holiday, and our new Monster Dodger service reflects that,” said Terry Inch, director, OnStar Subscriber Services. “This year, in addition to OnStar providing help to subscribers who need directions to the closest costume shop or convenience store to pick up candy, we are offering families an entertaining button push opportunity.”

On October 31st, subscribers to OnStar can push the blue button on their system and ask for the location of the closest “monster” so they can dodge a potential encounter. And to make sure that you stay prepared, the CDC has recommended to use their Zombie Preparedness Kit on their website.

“Although a zombie attack maybe farfetched, our Advisors are available 24/7 to help drivers with any emergency or service request they may have,” Inch adds. “We’ll continue to see customers through emergencies and less-serious situations – whether outpacing a zombie herd, or directions to a Halloween Monster Mash.”

So if you plan on traveling and have OnStar, you already are a couple steps ahead to surviving. And like “Columbus” said (Jesse Eisenberg) in Zombieland with his list of 30 rules to surviving Z-Day, Rule #4: always wear your seatbelt.
