>>> hackers broke into the emergency alert system in a local station and this is what unsuspecting viewers heard.

>> authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living. follow the messages on screen that will be updated as information becomes available. do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous.

>> the network is investigating the hack and denies that there is any emergency or zombie apocalypse in case you had any doubt. still terrifying, as you can imagine.

>> not funny.
