The Lasso: Roping in the best of the web

'Walking Dead' hires famous prankster to scare Norman Reedus

I'm not sure if I would be brave enough to scare Norman Reedus, the actor who portrays fan-favorite Daryl on "The Walking Dead."

But of course members of the show are.

Star Andrew Lincoln, better known as Rick on the show, and special effects guru Greg Nicotero discovered Nick Santonastasso, a YouTube prankster with a knack of pulling off zombie pranks.

Santonastasso was born without one arm and both legs. He's turned that into a positive by pretending to be a zombie and scaring the living daylights out of people.

Both Nicotero and Lincoln said they were fans of his and decided to fly him to Tokyo to terrify Reedus.

Let's just say it works.
