NYC Zombie Experiment Makes New Yorkers Hate Something More Than Just Everybody Not from New York

In a bit of viral marketing, AMC sent a flashmob of zombies out through the streets of Manhattan to scare up some locals in a bit of protest against the Dish Network as the satellite provider dropped the channel off its lineup, affecting those who can watch The Walking Dead when its third season premieres later this summer. Now I hate flashmobs. I'd probably hate them more if their skin was hanging off in infected globs of sinewy shreds. So the reactions these zombies get isn't all that surprising. But with all the cannibalism going around these days, I'm a bit surprised some survivalist didn't accidentally take one of their heads off.

Even if they weren't really zombies, street performers kinda deserve it anyway, so...
