So sit back, relax and get ready for some lolz.

Zombie Experiment NYC

And finally, the latest viral campaign from Thinkmodo took off this week, racking up over 2.5 million views in a matter of days.  In a promotion aimed at getting Dish customers to change providers so they can watch AMC and The Walking Dead, Thinkmodo set out to see what it would be like if zombies lived among us.  They zombied up a few New Yorkers and had them wander the city.  The results are awesome and terrifying.  Enjoy!
