The Walking Dead’s resident badass, Norman Reedus, started posting some interesting tweets earlier this week. The man who portrays redneck heartthrob Daryl Dixon posted that he was shooting a Super Bowl commercial in LA. Besides the pics of his trademark vest, the actor also posted the two zombie shots. This lead many to believe that AMC had purchased a spot for the February 28th game. Spots for the biggest event in television sell for upwards of $4 million for 30 seconds. It turns out that it isn’t a spot to hype up the already massive show. According to information obtained by Business Insider, Reedus and possibly other cast members will take part in Time Warner Cable’s spot for the big game.
According to B.I., Time Warner Cable reached out to them to clarify that the spot wasn’t just for The Walking Dead. The spot will be used as part of the Enjoy Better campaign. This isn’t the first time Time Warner has used zombies to help promote their campaign. The company used zombies in their last Super Bowl spot that centered on Ricky Jervais. From Reedus’ tweets and the unbelievable success of The Walking Dead, we can expect Daryl and TWD in a spot of prominence. Check out the old zombie-filled spot after all the Reedus pics!
