Walking Dead title sequence as a 1980s sitcom

MovieWeb's alternate title sequence for The Walking Dead is set to the theme from Growing Pains and expertly edited/titled to give it the air of a 1980s sitcom, an effect that it achieves in spades. I would watch this sitcom: "The departure of Frank Darabont has seen The Walking Dead go in a whole new direction. This new intro for season 2.5 seems to shine a light on the character dynamics of this ragtag group of zombie survivors and the impending daddy issues that Laurie's pregnancy is sure to bring."

    1. People always complain that this stuff has ads. But I never see the ads.

      I suspect these people either run IE, or don’t run AdBlock. That’s OK, I won’t evangelise. I *like* that rubes are funding my internet habit.

      1.  I don’t run adblock for two reasons: I sometimes work in advertising and I like seeing some ads, and I recognize that ads pay for content, and while there is no direct link between my wallet and most advertisers,  I just allow them to display as a link to solidarity.  I know, it’s all in my head, but there it is.

        However, ads like the one that just plays itself over this video- an ad you cannot shut off or navigate around, mind you- are the single best way to persuade me to never, ever use, read or watch whatever product they’re hawking.  Screw that.  Ditto any video that self starts 0nce a page is open.  It’s a sleazy and disruptive way to get a message to potential consumers, and the people who commission or create those ads are the worst kind of garbage.

      2. I run Chrome, and Firefox, And Opera, And Adblock.

        Ads on all. One for McDonalds. One for Alpro. Once the ad begins you can’t turn it off, or turn down the volume (helpfully set TO MAX). Click the ad and you’ll be taken to a full screen version. FUCK EVERTHING ABOUT PRE-ROLL ADS. 

  1. That intrusive ad wrecked it for me. I hope someone uploads it to youtube or vimeo.
