Plants vs Zombies charity song aims to be Christmas No 1 – Console news

Can Crazy Dave from PopCap’s massive Plants vs Zombies reach the top of the charts this Christmas with ‘hip-hop’ single Wabby Wabbo?

Casual gaming overlord PopCap has teamed up with humanatarian charity Concern Worldwide to release a Christmas single. The song, bizarrely called Wabby Wabbo is based around PopCap’s hit title Plants vs Zombies. It’s “performed” by the game’s narrator and shopkeeper Crazy Dave, a bearded nutcase with a pan on his head. “Wabbo Wabbo is believed to be the first hip-hop single ever released to feature a yodelling solo by a Yeti zombie,” says the press release.

The single is available for download now and PopCap hopes that if enough Plants vs Zombies fans download the track this week, it can beat the inevitable favourite from X-Factor to the top spot. The (let’s say “eccentric”) video accompanying the track has already had almost 600,000 views on YouTube, and 55p from every download fee goes to the charity. And remember, there’s always the chance that it could ruin Christmas for Simon Cowell.
