Amir Johnson Dressed Up Like a Zombie

Raptors forward Amir Johnson, a big fan of the show “The Walking Dead”, took part in the annual Toronto Zombie Walk over the weekend. Per the team website: “The annual Toronto Zombie Walk celebrated its tenth anniversary this past Saturday, but it was a first for Johnson. ‘I had so much fun at Nuit Blanche, the art thing, so I was like, let me try the zombie deal,’ he said. ‘I was excited to do it and I might have some plans next year to do it again.’ Johnson, who said The Walking Dead is his favourite TV show, went full out by hiring a professional makeup artist to spend an hour on a truly authentic undead appearance. Did the makeup pass the test for the six-foot-nine forward among an expected crowd of over 7,000 wannabe walkers? ‘Nobody recognized me,’ said Johnson. ‘Maybe two people that kind of recognized me and they were just standing there like ‘that’s a tall zombie. Wait a minute, are you Amir?’ and I’m like ‘No, I’m not Amir. Nooooo.’ It was pretty awesome.’”

    Off topic but I was in LA for all star weekend a couple years back and I went to the Beverly Center to do a little shopping. Amir Johnson was there and they closed down the Louis Vuitton store for him to shop. I watch a lot of NBA so I recognizedhJim but most ppl were like “what’s going on, why can’t I go in?” lol. I remember thinking if theydo tthis for Amir Johnson, what would they do if Kobe ever came in here.
