You may recall Nick Santonastasso, the New Jersey teen born with only one arm and no legs who become an internet sensation after posting videos in which he terrified unsuspecting shoppers by pretending to be a zombie. Santonastasso, 17, also happens to be a big fan of The Walking Dead—and he pulled the "ultimate zombie prank" this week on cast member Norman Reedus, aka Daryl.

Santonastasso was flown to Tokyo by the show, where they were doing a press junket this week; star Andrew Lincoln (ya know, the creepy guy who thinks you are perfect) and makeup artist Greg Nicotero helped transform him into a full-blown zombie. Then it was just a matter of waiting for the perfect time to freak out Reedus.

Previous to this, one of his fans, Johnny Pope, started a petition on Change.org to get him a role on the show. "Nick has made the best out of his physical situation [sic] and it would great if he could work as a zombie on up coming walking dead episode," Pope wrote. Hopefully all this means Santonastasso will indeed get to be on the show this season.
