People like to talk about how we’re preparing for the zombie apocalypse and that’s all well and good, but running into Greg Nicotero’s living nightmares? That’s a whole other thing. NO FORKIN’ WAY am I stepping into Universal Studios’ Walking Dead attraction, especially since they’ve got “Bicycle Girl.”
Yeah, Rick doesn’t mind too much; then again, Rick isn’t always the smartest cookie, now is he? And, I know some of you wackadoodie people will probably run to this attraction, but me…I’m running the other way. You guys, who knows if a real walker is in there somewhere? It could be the start of the whole thing — a government conspiracy — testing out a new zombification virus, and you just know Hollywood is somewhere in those big governmental pockets. You go on ahead and have your “fun”; I’ll be hunkering down somewhere…undisclosed, listening to a shortwave and eating protein bars.
Here’s a little sneak peek of the “attraction,” with Greg himself showing you around.
Meanwhile, the internets are making a big deal out of a recent report that Norman Reedus and Steven Yeun were riding motorcycles together in Georgia; the pair helped out some people who’d had a car accident, and everyone assumed (you know what they say) that this must signify Glenn Rhee and Daryl Dixon were spared Negan’s bat. After all, reports said they were dressed like their characters, and seemingly off to film together. But what people should be thinking about is that the two actors were riding motorcycles, and Norman Reedus has a new AMC series called — wait for it — “Ride with Norman Reedus,” and please note the description:
Each episode will feature Reedus and a riding companion – a fellow actor, musician, friend or local chopper fanatic – as they journey to custom bike shops, tattoo parlors, collector’s warehouses, or a roadside smokehouse… with plenty of time for unplanned detours and tire changes.”
Ahem. Who better to go with Norman on one of his episodic journeys than one of his Walking Dead buddies?
That’s it folks, mystery not solved, and nothing to see here.
The Walking Dead returns this October, and Universal Studios’ Walking Dead attraction opens July 4th.
