The Walking Dead: Selena Gomez, Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell As Zombies (Video)
A promotional video for the forthcoming MTV Movie Awards shows us a side of Selena Gomez, Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen and Rebel Wilson we’ve never seen before … aside from maybe in our worst nightmares. (Or best dreams, depending on our fetishes.)
The MTV Movie Awards, which airs Sunday, April 14, is being promoted via “The Walking Dead” zombie craze that continues to plague the world with a baffling passion for all things undead (which, we suppose, could also include vampires).
Wilson, who many will remember as the female half of Kristen Wiig’s portly sibling roommates from “Bridesmaids,” will be hosting the MTV Movie Awards this year and appears at the end of the promo wearing a red hoody sweater, slowly looking up to the camera before eerily morphing steadily into a living rotting corpse a la “Night of the Living Dead.”
The ad for the awards begins with a Vincent Price-esque narration straight out of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” explaining that “legions of the undead are rising and the battle for humanity’s survival rages on with the MTV Awards.” The voiceover runs over quick blips of degenerated newsreel footage depicting widespread zombie mania panic.
We then see (and hear about from the creepy narrator) those celebs who will be featured in the awards. As each person is introduced, another zombie transformation takes place.
First, it’s Will Ferrell as a newscaster whose face grows deathly blue and covered with festering skin wounds. “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson is next, sitting in a library and slowly losing the color in her eyes … along with the pink hue of her skin. (Heck, even her brightly-colored striped sweater gets the funereal zombie effect.)
Seth Rogen is zombie-fied next before we learn that “Spring Breakers” star Selena Gomez will not only be at the awards but performing as well. The starlet, who has been vaunting quite a lot of transformations lately (in addition to the zombie effect we see here), is said to be releasing a studio album this summer.
Does the zombie promo entice you to watch the MTV Movie Awards? Or are you surprised to discover MTV still exists at all? Let us know in the comments below!
