THE WALKING DEAD To Tickle Your Zombie Innards With MOUNTAIN DEW

THE WALKING DEAD To Tickle Your Zombie Innards With MOUNTAIN DEW”

AMC and Mountain Dew today announced a comprehensive partnership timed to the upcoming eighth season of "The Walking Dead" including the launch of a new, first-of-its-kind "The Walking Dead Encounter" augmented reality app that will allow consumers to experience some of the show's most iconic zombie walkers in their own real-world environments and then share the interactions via social media.

"In the last season, Rick Grimes and his group of survivors were faced with their greatest challenge".

This season, Rick declares war on Negan. "Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel leading the Kingdom - Negan and the Saviors' grip on this world may finally be coming to an end".

The seventh season of the show was met with mixed reviews following a slightly disappointing finale, but now Chandler Riggs aka Carl has offered a beacon of hope the entirety of season eight will be one long stream of pay off.

Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it's not enough.

"The Walking Dead" Season 8 premieres in just a over a month, on October 22 to be exact. They must now fight to reclaim their freedom. "Yeah, lots of fighting, lots of cool stuff". We do like the slower, softer installments if there is some real moment of resonance, but there were two or three clear misses last season that could've just been combined into other stories.

No mention is made of any in-show product placement for Mountain Dew, however The Walking Dead has featured paid product placement in the past including a kiwi-green Hyundai Tuscon.

"We've had a few characters this season who I feel so bad for, because they're coming in in the midst of all the war and the craziness with the explosions and everything". Even if it is going to have to work twice as hard for us to rally during the course of his season 8.

AMC has partnered with PepsiCo for a new Mountain Dew/The Walking Dead marketing partnership. Another surprise? Seeing that the Saviors are somehow even larger, given that we don't exactly know where Negan is able to go to grow his new members.
