FOX social media campaign gives The Walking Dead star ultimate zombie scare

The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus (Daryl) was given a production standard shock as part of a FOX social media campaign launched in Tokyo today.

Superfan and Vine ‘Zombie Prankster’, Nick Santonastasso lurched at Reedus from under a table after being given a professional makeover by the show's special effects guru, Greg Nicotero. The prank was the first installment of the “#getFOXed” campaign, designed to deliver extraordinary fan experiences. It comes ahead of the global return of Season 4 on FOX, which broadcasts the show, starring British actor Andrew Lincoln, in 125 countries.

A video of the unsuspecting Reedus can be seen here.
