The Walking Dead Rotting Finger Countdown

Agency: Leo Burnett


The Walking Dead, one of AMC’s most popular TV shows, is set in a world overrun by zombies. To get people excited about its return on February 10th we created a rotting finger countdown. Every day leading up to February 10th, one finger was hacked off the hands, counting down the days to the return of the show. We also asked people to Tweet pictures of themselves in front of the hands for a chance to win one of the fingers.

This professional campaign titled 'The Walking Dead Rotting Finger Countdown' was published in Canada in February, 2013. It was created for the brand: CMA, by ad agency: Leo Burnett. This Ambient medium campaign is related to the Media industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 11 years ago.
