A selection of dead Waking Dead characters make a comeback in a series of hilarious adverts sponsored by Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.
As The Walking Dead bids farewell, Ryan Reynolds brings some of the show’s most beloved characters back to life to star in a series of commercials.
Reynolds dropped a Twitter post featuring commercials from his company MNTN Performance TV as well as Doordash, Autodesk, Ring and Deloitte, all airing during the series finale of The Walking Dead November 20. The advertisements were produced by the dead Pool star’s agency Maximum Effort and included characters familiar from the AMC drama series, including Joe Ando-Hirsh (Rodney), Dallas Roberts (Milton), Andrew J. West (Gareth) and Laurie Holden (Andre).
Rodney appears in the first commercial for DoorDash, ordering food over the phone while using a severed finger before the delivery man hesitantly leaves him beside him. Milton gave a presentation for Autodesk, showcasing the world’s first door handle powered by a growl. Gareth hides in his house as he uses a Ring doorbell to search for a few people he doesn’t want in, joking that humans are scarier than walkers. Meanwhile, Andrea features in a pair of commercials; one as Chief Brain Officer while hooking up with Deloitte and another for MNTN Performance TV where she claims to have eaten Reynolds’ brain.
The Walking Dead keeps mixing
Ando-Hirsh appeared as Rodney on The Walking Dead for three episodes between 2018 and 2019 while Roberts’ Milton featured prominently in the show’s third season. West guest starred as Gareth in the drama series’ season 4 finale before becoming a season 5 regular while Holden starred as Andrea between 2010 and 2013 before reprising her role in 2020.
Other famous names who starred in The Walking Dead to understand Black Panther: Wakanda Forever starring Danai Gurira (Michionne), Boondock Saints actor Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) and Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes). Several of these characters are set to return as AMC recently announced spinoffs for The Walking Dead ahead of the series finale, a move that Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan on the show, openly criticized him. The spinoff includes one based on Rick and Michionne’s relationship, plus another chronicle Daryl’s Adventures in Paris, France.
Those who missed The Walking Dead the closer series can catch up by streaming it on AMC’s website. Fans can also stream all Season 11 episodes in their entirety, along with interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.
