Man creates the perfect arrow for killing zombies: It’s all about maximum brain damage

So the problem with killing zombies is that you have to get at the beautiful, juicy brains inside their skulls. The problem is that most arrowheads either won't destroy enough brain matter to be effective, or they lack the stopping power needed to punch through a thick, undead skull. The gentleman in this video came up with the novel solution to both problems.

The mechanism is clever, although rather brutal, and the tests with ballistic gelatin show just how much brain matter these arrows chew through. You can't beat a shotgun or an ax when it comes to killing zombies, but this is a pretty good ranged alternative to conventional firearms, and it has the added benefit of being quiet. The hordes won't hone in on the noise of a firearm.

Clever stuff, and this is a fun video. Armchair weapons experts, let's hear about why this is great / terrible!
