This Walking Dead Parody Also Spoofs the Song Dumb Ways To Die

Here comes another Walking Dead parody, and this time it also incorporates a song spoof.

"Dumb Ways to Die" is a hilarious song that lists ridiculous ways to lose life such as, "using your private parts as Piranha bait." In this Walking Dead parody, that line is switched to "Take a hit right to the head/It's the only thing that makes you dead/If you need a meal, just follow Shane/'Cause he'll shoot his friend and abandon him as bait."

The twist on the song is that they've rewritten it from the perspective of a zombie, hence the Walking Dead angle. The video itself takes this parody concept one step further and features a Thriller-esque dance scene of choreographed zombie dancing.
