Carrier and channel disputes can get damned ugly. It’s all about money and spend no expense getting the people on their side to berate the competing side. AMC just sucker punched Dish Network, who dropped the network from their channel lineup.
AMC put some awesome zombie make-up on a lot of people and had them walk around New York City. They wanted to bring attention to their side of the story, as they’re claiming Dish is trying to “gain leverage in a lawsuit involving an old and unrelated business venture.”
Now, I don’t have Dish and I don’t care one zombie lick about what happens in this dispute but the video AMC put out is pretty damned awesome. What happens when you put Hollywood-quality zombie make-up on people and have them walk through the biggest city in the country? You scare the crap out of people. [PutZombiesBack via Movies.com]
