Let's say you're a fatcat banker and recipient of a taxpayer-funded bailout, looking out into the crowd protesting you.  Does the terrifying undead pirate make you think differently about taking the bailout? Or do you think, if the terrifying undead pirate is against me, maybe I'm the good guy?

Really the whole thing would be a lot more interesting if it was Wall Street Bankers versus Army of Undead Pirates.
