This week’s cool thing is the LiveDead campaign. If I’m not mistaken, it’s a viral advertising campaign for the upcoming AMC TV series The Walking Dead. Besides the use of the images, there’s also the use of the term “walkers” to describe the zombies, which the series is also using. If I am mistaken, expect the people behind LiveDead to receive a cease-and-desist from AMC damn soon, because those are clearly images of zombies from the series all over their page.
I caught wind of it from this blog from io9 from Comic Con. Apparently you could get the bracelets you see above there for $1! Unfortunately, the LiveDead site seems to be purely decorative — none of the links work, you can’t go the “store,” etc. Bummer. But maybe AMC (if they are, indeed, behind it) will make it go live as the series gets closer? I hope so. I want a LiveDead bracelet to go with my DeadStrong one. Are you listening AMC? I will give you real American dollars for one of those bracelets!
