Whitney Port, Elisabeth Rohm + More Get Zombified for the American Red Cross
Stars like Whitney Port show their support for the American Red Cross Zombie Blood Drive and AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead!’
Every two seconds, someone in the US needs blood. It might be because of an accident… because of a natural disaster… or even a zombie apocalypse.
Just kidding!… Well, sort of. We’ll admit that a zombie apocalypse is probably unlikely to happen, but that doesn’t mean negate the fact that in the event of something horrible happening to the country or the world, it’s the existing available blood supply that will help save lives. Accordingly, AMC and the American Red Cross have teamed up to raise awareness about donating blood—and of course they’re doing it in the most entertaining way possible.
The American Red Cross Zombie Blood Drive, running from now through October 22, urges everyone to give blood through the Red Cross. But they’ve got a little help from the likes of Whitney Port, Elisabeth Rohm, and more—only what’s this? Uh oh! They’ve been turned into zombies!
Don’t worry, though; it’s just Hollywood magic. Special effects makeup artist extraordinaire Greg Nicotero, who supplies the FX makeup for AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead, has zombified the stars supporting the campaign for a special undead photo shoot, and the results are pretty spectacular. AMC is also organizing a sweepstakes to thank those who donate blood to the Red Cross, with the grand prize being a visit to the set of The Walking Dead in Atlanta. Neat-o! Want to find out more?
