Prankster and zombie fan Nick Santonastasso recently teamed up with Andrew Lincoln and Greg Nicotero of The Walking Dead to pull a brilliant prank on their co-worker Norman Reedus! The New Jersey teen was invited to Tokyo to recreate his hugely popular zombie scare during an interview with Reedus during a short promotional tour of Tokyo.
Meeting up beforehand in a plush hotel suite for an extensive zombie makeover, Santonastasso hid in a strategically placed room service cart as he waited for the perfect moment to ambush the television heartthrob. And while Reedus was certainly surprised, he seemed even more pleased to finally meet the YouTube sensation in person!
After a quick fright, Norman instantly recognized the prankster; “Good job, man. That was awesome! That was awesome.” However, he quickly regained his composure and playfully admitted “…I already know about you! I’ve already blasted you out to the planet. Wow! Wow! Good job, you jerk.”
Santonastasso was born with Hanhart syndrome, which has left him with only one arm and no legs. However, the inventive teen has used his condition and amazing sense of humor to pull this prank a number of times! Of course, with more than three million views… chances are that you’ve already seen him in action.
