Ad For The Walking Dead Appears by Funeral Parlor, Is Removed

And That's Terrible

“Who are the ad wizards who came up with this one??”

In a hilariously bad move, advertising giant Clear Channel accidentally placed a billboard for AMC‘s The Walking Dead on the side of a funeral parlor. Not in the vicinity, not across the street … on it. The series recently began airing on the UK’s Channel 5, so naturally, there would be advertising for it. But apparently, someone neglected to ask The Co-operative Funeralcare in Consett, County Durham if they’d mind featuring a big poster for a series featuring zombies (to say nothing of the phrase “The Walking Dead”) on the side of their establishment. Their funereal establishment. Oops.

The ad has been replaced and Clear Channel has issued an apology.
