'Zombies' hide in sewers, scare New Yorkers

'Zombies' Hide in Sewers, Scare New Yorkers
People in the Big Apple are used to seeing strange things on the street -- but they never expected hungry zombies to pop out of sewer grates.

New York Daily News says the whole thing was just a prank cooked up by AMC to promote its mid-season premiere of 'The Walking Dead' February 9th.

This isn't the first time AMC has had zombies prank the unsuspecting.

US Weekly says the network had viral Vine prankster Nick Santonastasso - who has only one arm and no legs - fly out to Tokyo to prank 'The Walking Dead' star Norman Reedus.

Seems like 'The Walking Dead' has a pretty great marketing department.

You can shoot them all you want, can't kill them, they're already dead.

very visious and stupid thing to do...likely to cause distress and possibly heart attack. Someone should be sued for this inane stupid act.

Really stupid move. This could cause someone extreme harm, as if they had heart problems, it could trigger a heart attack, or other medical condition. Stupid, stupid move.

For some it might be funny. I would have kicked the hands or better yet spilled my hot coffee on the entire group. This is totally against the law. Any person that did kick or injure the people in the sewers I respect. I actually wonder who gave them the permit for such a stupid idea that could not only injure the persons in the sewer buy could actually cause a very bad experience with certain people who are walking. A person can be literally scared to death.
