By this time, you must have heard about PayPal President Scott Thompson recently challenged five Bay Area PayPal employees to embrace a lifestyle focused solely on digital money, it can save your life during a Zombie Apocalypse.

A member of the PayPal community called "Zombie Apocalypse" produced a video, that shows how one survivor fled from zombies, but "it wasn't because he was the brightest," and "it wasn't because he had the best tools of the trade."… It was because he had signed up for PayPal.

It's a funny take on how much easier life can be when paying for things doesn't get in the way.

PayPal allowed him to quickly pay for things by tapping his finger. For instance, in one scene, he escapes in a rental car after paying for it in one touch, and in another, he buys enough sodas from a vending machine to throw at his gory attackers.

The commercial is hysterically funny, but in an interview with Sam Shrauger, PayPal's VP of global product and experience, he tells me there must be a serious reason for consumers to adopt new payment technologies.

Here's the video:
