‘Zombies’ Released In NYC As A Protest Against Satellite Broadcaster

As a protest against Dish Network and their decision to drop television channel, AMC and its popular ‘The Walking Dead’ series, the network decided to stage a protest—by unleashing the ‘horde of undead’ upon New York City.

Actors were put through extensive ‘zombie’ make-up and before being ‘let-loose’ on the streets of Manhattan as a sign of protest.

The zombies were disguised as police officers, postal workers, hot dog vendors and civilians—scaring commuters and pedestrians around them.

The purpose of this campaign was to raise awareness that Dish no longer carries the AMC network—meaning Dish subscribers will no longer be able to watch programs such as ‘The Walking Dead’, ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Breaking Bad’.

The video asked viewers if ‘zombies could live among us?’ and they had ‘transformed a few New Yorkers to find out’ the answer.

After countless numbers of scares, the video concludes with a zombie dragging a Dish Network satellite and the message “Zombies don’t belong here”, “Put them back on TV”.

Do you think AMC’s ‘scare-tactics’ will work?
