I want to make a guide that is less ambiguous than many others I've read, so here is my attempt. You need to be on Original difficulty level. This is all we did to get this achievement, we didn't assemble any obelisks or super weapons. This guide does assume you have some knowledge of how to play Zombies.

Step 1:
You need four players. In the bus station EVERYONE needs a windmill turbine. One player needs to have an EMP grenade. So keep using the box as soon as you start. Let one player kill all the zombies for the first 2 rounds and you should have enough money for three turns on the box at the Diner. If you don't get EMPs then restart the game.

Step 2:
Then at the end of the second round leave a couple of zombies alive and have one player look after them at the Diner so the rest of the players can go off to the power room (including the player with the EMP grenades), which is two bus stops after the Diner. Turn on the power by assembling the switch, then turn it off again after the voice tells you to (this step has created the electrical man that you need to kill with an EMP in step 4). Use a turbine to leave the power room and get back to the bus, but don't forget to pick it up again. Two players then walk back the way the bus came to get back to the cornfield and the overhead power line pylon that is there. One player needs to get back on the bus and ride it to the town where the bank is.

Step 3:
Once you have found your way to the pylon through the corn field, knifing the little goblins on the way when they jump on you (Don't hate them, they just want a little love), you need to put 2 turbines down inside the base of the pylon, you will be safe from the goblins here too. When the electrical storm is overhead at the cornfield, kill the remaining zombies to start a new round. (Some guides say that doing this when the storm is overhead guarantees that the electrical man will appear in the cornfield, though in my experience this hasn't been the case, but it doesn't hurt to wait until the storm is overhead, just incase).

Step 4:
You may need to fight a few waves of zombies until the electrical man appears, but when he does, wait for him to get into the centre of the pylon base, then EMP him to kill him. Loads of weird stuf will start happening then at the pylon. The player at the Diner should then put down his turbine under the street light outside the shed with the white doors at one end of the area, this will turn the light on. The player at the town should run back down the road the way they came on the bus (knifing goblins that jump on you) until they get to a street light and put the turbine down under it. Achievement Unlocked.

EDIT: You don't necessarily need four players, or four turbines, but my guide just explains how I managed to do the achievement. Also why do some people call this an Easter Egg? If there is an achievement for it it's not an Easter Egg.

I can confirm that this achievement can be done with three players.

Quick guide:
1) Build Turbines
2) Hit box to get EMPs
3) Turn on power to free Electric Man
4) Turn off power after Maxis (the voice) tells you do to so
5) Kill Electric Man under Pylon, using established instructions (2 turbines + EMP)
6) Make sure the Maxis (the voice) says, "great, but we still need more power!"
7) Turbine @ Bus Depot & Diner. Turbines are no longer needed at the pylon
8) Achievement Unlocked

We ended up completing it by round 7, including ~30 minutes where we had one person babysitting one final zombie around while the other two of us (who had died in previous rounds) to get new turbines. We had followed the steps 1 - 6 above, and as soon as we co-ordinated and dropped turbines at the Bus Depot and Diner (at the streetlights which are firing sparks) at the same time, within 2 or 3 seconds the achievement unlocked.

(The primary intention of this solution posting is to show that it can be done with three players. Vote with that in mind!)
