'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.

Less of the dolly bird anouncer and more clips please. She can talk over the visuals, we don't have to see so much of the announcer. All the AOL Video clips suffer from this focus on the announcer rather than the story.

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

The goals of "practical jokers" is to humiliate, scare, demean, and belittle others. How's that different from a "bully"? What they are doing is "intentional infliction of emotional distress", a tortious evil act that's illegal.
But celebrities' stop bullying campaign only picks on high school kids and never picks on villans their own size.

Good way to get shot or at least the living crap beat out of you. Did they ever think they could have given someone a heart attack? Stupid.
