Proof that Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Norman Reedus (Daryl) have a legit bromance behind the scenes (swoons for days), Lincoln has helped to "zombie punk" his friend Reedus, and it was all caught on video.
Fox, which broadcasts TWD in 125 countries outside of the U.S., paid to fly Vine "Zombie Prankster" Nick Santonastasso to Tokyo, where Lincoln and Reedus are currently promoting their hit series.
With the help of The Walking Dead's special effects guru Greg Nicotero, Nick was transformed into a ghastly looking walker and hid below a catering cart, in order to scare the bejeezus out of Reedus.
Our takeaway? Norman Reedus has cojones of steel (duh—he's Daryl!) and is not easily rattled. But the video is a good time, nonetheless.
On a cold February day in the small town of Clayfield, Kentucky, an unsuspecting and unprepared museum director he finds himself in the middle of hell on Earth. A pandemic is spreading around the globe, and it’s turning most of the residents of Clayfield into murderous zombies.

After what was believed to be a zombie apocalypse failed to wreak the havoc it was believed to, the city of Lake Lucille, FL finds itself in the process of getting back on it’s feet, but while the zombies did not vanquish the city, the remnants of the biohazard zombie outbreak of which the origin is still not yet known, continue to be a nuisance to the city as the undead continue to roam the streets like a rampant pest problem. In order to combat this nuisance, the city implements a city-wide mandatory vaccine to prevent future infection, and with it a Zombie Clean-Up division comprised of a gang of misfits that include a former city council member, to animal control specialist, and a scientist, among others to help vanquish the infected that continue to roam the city’s streets, neighborhoods and businesses.

Somebody can’t wait until Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday nights.
According to the Flyers’ Instagram account, goalie Steve Mason has a hot new mask to go along with his new multimillion dollar contract.
It’s safe to say Mase is something of a zombie fan as the new mask features undead Flyers players Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, and Jake Voracek.
As one person said on Twitter, “Great mask, accurately depicts the play of the team of late.”
Mason even has a stick to match:
Exor Studios is working with Microsoft to try and bring an enhanced version of Zombie Driver to Xbox One.
The developer announced its plans in an update on its Facebook page, where it reiterated that the Xbox 360 version was to be pulled from XBLA and the Japanese PlayStation Store at the end of the month.
"We are already working with Sony in Japan to re-release the game so it should return shortly," reads the update. "The situation on XBLA is somewhat more difficult because due to Microsoft's policies we are not able to self-publish the game on the Xbox 360 even though it has passed all certification stages, requirements, etc. XBLA on the Xbox 360 is the last platform where it's not possible to release a game on our own and from the perspective of a small independent studio, it looks a bit like a remnant of the Cold War in comparison to the other platforms."
But with Microsoft allowing self-publishing on Xbox One, the developer is optimistic about bringing an enhanced version to the console.
"Thankfully Microsoft is moving forward with the Xbox One and we are already in the ID@XBOX program," the studio adds. "We're looking forward to see if we would be allowed to release Zombie Driver on the Xbox One with new improvements for the next generation."
Zombie Driver HD is expected to be removed from XBLA as early as tomorrow following the liquidation of publisher Cyberfront Corporation. Exor is currently in the process of finding a new publishing partner to re-release it on the platform "as soon as possible".
