Andrew Lincoln and 'Walking Dead' Superfan Prank Norman Reedus

Lincoln & Nicotero in the prank control room
Elaborate prank videos are all the rage these days but this one got the celebrity touch and is sure to make you smile. We promise.

Superfan of "The Walking Dead" and Vine ‘Zombie Prankster,’ 17-year-old Nick Santonastasso, succeeds in making one of the most badass actors from the series, scream. With the help of Andrew Lincoln (Sheriff Grimes to you and me), and Special Effects Guru/Executive Producer, Greg Nicotero, Nick manages to frighten Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) during an interview break in a hotel room.

The press release offers some background of the prank, "FOX, leading international entertainment pay-TV network and broadcaster of 'The Walking Dead' in 125 countries outside the USA, launched its social media driven “#getFOXed” campaign in Tokyo today."

Nick, was born with a rare syndrome called Hanhart and has only one arm and no legs and has overcome many obstacles, thus serving as an inspiration to all. His love for the AMC series made him the perfect fan to launch the “#getFOXed” campaign. You can check out some behind-the-scenes pics here and head to Nick's Vine page for more laughs.

Be sure to let us know what you thought after watching this awesome prank! The second half of "The Walking Dead"'s fourth season returns to AMC on February 9 at 9 p.m. ET.
