Zombies invaded the world today at the hands of cable network AMC, who got hundreds of people to dress up in zombie makeup and parade around major cities all over the world to promote their new zombie television series “The Walking Dead.”

Throughout today (Tue. Oct 26) AMC’s “zombie people” wandered around Taipei and Hong Kong over in Japan, as well as Washington D.C. and New York City here in the United States. The final attack is scheduled to occur at a screening for the new TV show in Los Angeles, where all the cast, crew and media will view the first episode before it premieres.

“The Walking Dead” is based on a comic book series of the same name that follows survivors of a worldwide undead epidemic as they travel across the United States seeking safety and shelter and premieres on October 31st on AMC.
