Universal Studios Resorts' "Arrival"
Travelers now have one more reason to dread airports: zombies. In a new spot directed by A Common Thread’s Clay Staub for Universal Studios’ Hollywood and Universal Orlando resorts, characters from AMC’s The Walking Dead terrorize people in a busy airport terminal. Conceived by Los Angeles agency David&Goliath, the ad promotes the theme park’s annual Halloween Horror Nights event, which this year features zombies inspired by the hit AMC series.
