Zombies Attack NYC In Viral Promo For 'The Walking Dead,' Which Returns This Sunday

The Walking Dead returns to television Sunday night, and what better way to get fans excited for the show than staging a zombie attack in the middle of New York City.

The show's promoters staged a prank in NYC's Union Square to scare the life out of passers by when zombies reached up from a sewer grate and grabbed at unsuspecting victims.

Several actors were made up to look like the show's zombies and a special grate was brought in to allow them to reach through at people and the result is hilarious.

It's not the first time a viral stunt has been used as a promotion. Last month a very realistic-looking animatronic baby scared residents of the city to promote new horror flick "Devil's Due," and back in October a girl with telekinetic powers scared up customers in a coffee shop to help promote the remake of "Carrie."

The fourth season of "The Walking Dead" premieres Sunday night at 9pm on AMC.
