John Cleese Talks the Walk(ing Dead)

The Walking Dead has been one of America’s biggest TV shows since its inception in 2010. In the run up to the highly anticipated Season 7, Sky and Now TV partnered up with Fever PR and Contra to launch a PR campaign reminding The Walking Dead fans of some of the key plots points and deadly important lessons of the first six seasons.

Naturally, the perfect person to front a video about a gory, zombie-apocalypse drama was British comedy legend, John Cleese, who brought his unique talents to the project.

Within the first week of release, the video went viral with over one and a half million views, receiving an overwhelmingly positive reaction by fans and critics alike, including Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, LA Times, CNET, Mashable, Radio Times, NME, The Telegraph, Independent and many more.

Let’s make something together
