Who Knew…Norman Reedus IS Afraid Of Zombies…

You would think a bad-ass like Norman Reedus, aka Daryl from The Walking Dead, would be able to handle one zombie on his own.  Well I’d probably have the same reaction he had if this prank was done to me.  The prank kicked off Fox’s social media driven campaign “#getFOXed.”

While doing press for the show in Tokyo, promoting the global return of Season 4 on FOX, the show’s international broadcaster, Andrew Lincoln and special effects master, Greg Nicotero decide to get the best of Reedus with the help of uber fan, Nick Santonastasso.  Santonastasso is “The Walking Dead” fan and Vine “Zombie Prankster” who has more than 534,000 followers who was flown to Tokyo, Japan where he was transformed into a walker by the show’s Special Effects guru, Greg Nicotero.

Nick’s prank was a follow up to his existing 2-part viral “Zombie Prank” Vine series.  (You can see those two videos below.)


Screen Shot 2014-01-19 at 6.53.44 PM17-year old Nick, was born with a rare syndrome called “Hanhart” and has only one arm and no legs.  His determination and infectious zest for life have enabled him to overcome countless obstacles and he has now become an inspiration for many kids and adults. Because of his outspoken love for “The Walking Dead,” Nick was the perfect fan to launch the “#getFOXed” campaign.

Don’t miss the global return of “The Walking Dead” across FOX channels outside of the USA on February 10th. Check local listings for exact times.  Now sit back and watch as Nick scare Norman as only a zombie could.
