In a May edition of Cool Stuff, we featured the Monroeville Zombie Hockey Jerseys that Jeff Anderson and Seth Rogen wear in Kevin Smith’s Zack and Miri Make a Porno (seen below). I love the design so much, but don’t wear hockey jerseys or white shirts for that matter (preemptive stain protection). Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash is now selling gray t-shirts featuring the same logo.
The design is cool on a bunch of different levels. If you’re a fan of George Romero, than you understand the significance of Monroeville. You see, Monroeville is a suburban area about 5-10 miles Northeast of the city of Pittsburgh, PA. Not only was Zack and Miri shot and set in Monroeville, but much of the George A. Romero horror classic Dawn of the Dead was filmed at Monroeville Mall (also a location in Smith’s film). So the design is also a tribute to the area and a homage to Romero.
