Historically important zombies offer tax help

Tax season is under way, and the first advertiser out of the gate is TurboTax, which has launched a somewhat creepy series of ads starring renowned tax experts Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant and Benjamin Franklin. The two presidents and one founding father are tinted a sickly green, probably to link them to their portraits on U.S. currency, of which they're trying to secure more for you. (Jackson's on the $20 bill, Grant's on the $50 and Franklin's on the $100.) Instead, they look like zombies who've clawed their way out of the earth and will haunt you until you throw down the $46.99 on Amazon for TurboTax Deluxe. Not to mention, taking advice from Grant, in particular, is not advised.
