More Zombie Brands

Daniel Gross is back with more zombie brands. Among them:

    • The Commodore 64, resurrected as a high-end gaming computer
    • Indian motorcycles
    • Triumph motorcycles (who were not only resurrected, but made a very strong comeback)
    • Lots of cars, including the Camaro, GTO, Montego, and MG
    • White Cloud paper products, now a Wal-Mart house brand
    • The McRib, which makes periodic resurgences for no good reason that anyone can figure out

Lots more, and lots of links, in the Slate article, plus some amusing requests for brand resurrections (mostly junk food). SAM GLOVER
