In case you missed it earlier this week, there’s an incredible new parody of AMC’s The Walking Dead out there from our pals and Nerdist Alliance members, The Hillywood Show®. Below you can get a good look at the awesome official stills they shared with us (and the video of course). But first we have to talk about how awesome these ladies are and the great nerdy parodies they have been making for YouTube.
The Hillywood Show® has mastered the art of the parody with videos in homage to The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, The Dark Knight, Doctor Who and more. If you haven’t taken a wander down the playlists in their YouTube channel well you are missing out, and we hope you’ll head over and watch a few. For now, Here’s a little Walking Dead for you:
For this Walking Dead parody, you can see Rick Grimes blow the brains out of walkers to the delightful and completely appropriate tune of Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust.” The internet has not one but two official videos on the making of this one. There’s an official feature, and then a video diary from Rick Grimes to keep you entertained. If nothing else, you’ll probably still be humming Queen when you settle in to watch Walking Dead (and Talking Dead of course) tomorrow night.
Now that you’ve seen the great parodies coming out of The Hillywood Show® (and the awesome official stills below) what should they make next? Perhaps a little Divergent? Or Interstellar? Tell us in the comments below!
