Yep, we knew the zombie.
It took only seconds to figure out Dayton native David Harewood was the undead menace moaning and trying to eat our brains recently at Room Escape Adventures' Trapped in a Room with a Zombie in Columbus.
David has been playing host and zombie for the company since August.
Room Escape Adventures' other interactive show at the Columbus Idea Foundry ( 421 W. State St.) is "Trapped II, Still Hungry."
The company also has shows in the Cincinnati area at The WEB Extreme Entertainment, 7172 Cincinnati-Dayton Road, West Chester Township.
My friends and I forked over $28 bucks each to be trapped in a room with David, who was playing Doc Oxy —a zombified scientist chained to a wall.
We had 60 minutes to figure out puzzles that would lead to our freedom. David's chain got a foot longer with every 5 minutes that passed.
Let's just say we taste like chicken.
David lives in Columbus now, but you might recognize the actor, too.
He attended Sinclair before transferring to Columbia College Chicago in 2003. He came back to town in 2008 after the financial crisis and helped with Dayton Circus Creative Collective, Garden Station, Dayton Side Shows and Yellow Cab.
I caught up with David on Facebook for a quick Q and A.
With that said, yes, it looks odd on a resume but makes for a great party conversation.
