ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland, June 27 (UPI) -- Some Canadian motorists were probably taken aback when they drove past an electronic traffic sign warning them: "Zombie invasion! Run!"
The electronic message board in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, was supposed to advise commuters about possible delays as construction got started on on Portugal Cove Road Monday. But pranksters gained control of it and programmed it with the heads-up about a zombie invasion.
Other messages included "Expect apocalyptic doom!" and "Rule #2: Double tap!" -- a line from the 2009 Woody Harrelson comedy "Zombieland."
City crews showed up to cart the sign away, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. said.
