The Burger King in Tokyo’s Shibuya is infested with zombies—or, at least, people paid to look like zombies.

To celebrate Halloween, this Burger King has been turned into what the fast-food chain is calling the “Shibuya Ghost Store.”

Tokyo Burger King Is Crawling With Zombies. Literally.

Maybe I’m being “That Guy”, but...

1) They’re not literally zombies.
2) They’re not literally crawling.

Better headline would be just: “Tokyo Burger King Is Crawling With Zombies”, because everyone reading understands that it’s a figurative usage to be cute.

Slapping “Literally” on the end doesn’t make any sense, and pointlessly draws uncomfortable attention to the fact that it’s absolutely not literal.

Imagine reading a headline saying “Daniel Radcliff Is Harry Potter. Literally.”

It’s like... No! He really isn’t! He’s an actor!
