In 1939, on the eve of Halloween, the director Welsh put on a radio play on the "War of the Worlds" by Herbert Wells. The event had a big resonance: many listeners accepted the "documentary" story about the invasion of the newcomers for a real news report and were frightened outright, American newspapers were discussing the CBS rally in vain, even stupid comments on this topic could not be kept even by Adolf Hitler. In 2013-m studio Paramount decided to use a similar trick to promote its action-horror "World War Z": several video clips were thrown on the Web, in which titled physicians warned the public about the pandemic of an unknown virus that turns people into zombies, reported the absence of recipes for overcome the scourge and invited everyone to unite, "until it's too late." In the video sequence for succinctness, juicy pieces of footage from the film were woven.

Other commercials were bits of "private video" from different countries that hinted at the presence of zombies, but did not show anything concrete. The picture itself was not mentioned there, which, of course, led only to an increase in curiosity. Interested citizens, who collected in the search engines Crisis Zero, got on the fake web site, where it was possible to get additional information.
