If you are here, and you are reading this, then you already know that The Walking Dead premiers on AMC Halloween night – but did you know that major cities around the world got an IRL sneak-peek treat?

That’s right, 26 cities around the world were invaded by superfans made up in the style of the zombies of The Walking Dead during the morning commute hours of October 26th

My favorite part (1:26) was the fellow in Mexico City who forgot himself for a moment, caught up in his moment in the spotlight, and threw the horns before he realized he wasn’t at a Gwar concert.

From press release:

“The Walking Dead” premieres on AMC on Halloween, Sunday, October 31 at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. For the first time ever, the series will begin to premiere globally a few hours after AMC’s U.S. launch. Similar to a theatrical film release, all FIC markets will launch the first episode during the same week, before the release of the second episode in the US. “The Walking Dead” will debut in 120 countries, air in 33 languages and be viewed in 250 million households when it premieres.

(Editor’s note: “Holy crap! That’s a lot of support for a show about zombies!”)

“The Walking Dead”, AMC’s original series, is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. Kirkman serves as an executive producer on the project and three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) serves as writer, director and executive producer.
