Vietnamese skin clinic’s looks eerily similar to the Umbrella Corporation logo

A photo shared via Reddit depicting a Vietnamese skin clinic with the logo of a fictional corporation from Resident Evil, called the Umbrella Corporation, is now taking the internet by storm.

In Resident Evil, the Umbrella Corporation is a multinational company that provides pharmaceutical and medical equipments, cosmetics, consumer products and food to the public with top-secret operations on genetic engineering and biological weaponry. They were the ones responsible for the creating the zombies — humans who succumbed to the T-virus that were illegally and forcefully tested on them.

This begs the question: What are the odds that a skin clinic will use the logo of a corporation that produced zombies (even if it’s only fictional)?

Well whatever you think the answer is, netizens had a field day with the whole thing!

A website speculated that the whole thing was a viral marketing strategy, while another site defended that it wasn’t fake. Another news website investigated whether it was true or not, though the results were a little inconclusive.

Regardless, the skin clinic is getting some much-needed media attention as a result!

So do you think this whole thing was just a PR gimmick or the real deal? Let us know in the comment section!
