AMC sends zombies to attack New York City to retaliate against DISH NetworkPosted 10:39 am on Wednesday, August 1st, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
If you use the Dish Network to watch The Walking Dead, then you probably know that you’re shit out of luck once Season 3 hits in October. The Dish Network dropped the AMC channel, which includes shows like The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Let’s just say that AMC wasn’t too pleased with this, so to teach the Dish Network a lesson, they sent out their hordes of zombies to attack New York City (In reality it’s just one zombie being sent out one at a time). The people of New York might not have gotten the message, but at least the people viewing the video did.
Yeah, pretty much both sides are playing the the blame game. The Dish Network says that AMC is trying to force the network to accept packages it didn’t want, and AMC is saying that Dish never offered to negotiate pricing.
This video does make me think that if a zombie apocalypse does come, will we think it’s a big prank? Once the zombies start biting, that’s when we’ll know.
