The zombies have staged a revolt! They were seen protesting throughout New York City recently.
People who use DISH satellites won’t be able to access a number of television stations, including AMC, due to some lawsuit or something. Anyway, the point is that people are pissed because they’re still paying for channels that they aren’t receiving as a result of this blackout. This means that they won’t be able to watch season 3 of The Walking Dead - on their satellites, anyway.
A zombie invasion of New York City was staged by AMC as a way to protest and raise awareness of the issue. They’ve put together a bunch of great clips into this awesome promotional video. The makeup is comparable to that you’d see on the show itself. Check it out; you’ll see zombies of all kinds just doin’ their thang out in NYC and you’ll also see the people who were caught completely by surprise.
Check out AMC’s official statement about this DISH business after the jump:
