Zombies Emerge from New York Sidewalk Grates to Promote 'The Walking Dead'

Feb 08, 2014

New Yorkers can't catch a break. First a "devil baby" in a remote-controlled stroller terrorized residents to promote the horror flick Devil's Due last month. Now, The Walking Dead has hired actors dressed like zombies to promote the hit AMC thriller. In this video of the prank, watch their "bloodied" fingers and arms creep out of the sidewalk grates and startle passersby. New episodes of the show start Sunday, Feb. 9 — at least for the people who made it past the zombies alive.
