Walkers Lurk Below the Streets of NYC

By February 7, 2014 No Comments

To promote the return of the hit television series ‘The Walking Dead’ this Sunday, cable channel AMC decided to pull a ‘prankvertisement’ on unsuspecting New Yorkers. In this scare prank, zombie actors were hidden below a sidewalk grate in Manhattan’s Union Square. When unsuspecting pedestrians walked over the grate, the ‘zombies’ would reach out and lunged at their feet with their bloodied hands—scaring them in the process. Just a couple of weeks ago, the prank “Devil Baby” was a huge hit online. It seems like New Yorkers just can’t catch a break from these ‘prankvertisements’.
