MythBusters Walking Dead Special


The cast of the television series MythBusters (one of my favourite shows ever) perform experiments to verify or debunk urban legends, old wives’ tales, and the like. Last season, they aired an episode titled, “MythBusters: Zombie Special” which focuses on one of pop culture’s running obsessions: zombies: Just in case the undead ever do come back to life, the gang at MythBusters, with the help of Greg Nicotero (best known as the special effects wizard behind The Walking Dead), put zombie lore to the test – or rather – put humans to the test, to see if we stand a chance when it comes to surviving a zombie invasion. With 150 volunteers playing the part of the brain munchers including The Walking Dead’s Michael Rooker (who played Merle Dixon), the MythBusters Built Team attempt to see how well they can survive a zombie invasion. The video is embedded below in three parts. Enjoy!
