Having a good identifiable business logo is important to leave a lasting impression on current and prospective customers, but a certain Vietnamese skin clinic would never have thought about the huge impact generated from their chosen design. The Ho Chi Minh City-based clinic was reportedly using the Umbrella Corporation’s logo from Resident Evil, and surprisingly, they didn’t even know it’s a carbon copy from the survival horror franchise.

Medcare Skin Centre only found out about the resemblance after the picture of the logo blew up on Geek Culture’s Facebook page and Reddit. It didn't take long for netizens to catch the “reality” of what’s going on, as they shared the photos citing the end of the world is near. And judging from the responses, most of them seemed a bit too excited for a zombie apocalypse to happen. Medcare even addressed their newfound popularity on its Facebook page, saying they were “also very surprised by this coincidence”.

We’ll never know whether this is a deliberate marketing stunt by them, but one thing’s for sure, the risk is yours to take for using their services. Just hope you won’t emerge as a Nemesis after you are done.
