'The Walking Dead': Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln are adorable in kimonos

Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln actually look kind of cute and cuddly in the Japanese promos for "The Walking Dead." Daryl Dixon and Rick Grimes have traded their biker gear and sheriff wear for kimonos, and the result is pretty freakin' adorable.

According to a May 6 report by Screencrush, one of the promos features Andrew Lincoln whipping out a geisha fan while Norman Reedus pretends to stab him with an arrow (he doesn't seem too happy about faux-killing his BFF). Sadly, Michonne's katana doesn't make a cameo in the bizarre promo.

A second Japanese ad for "The Walking Dead" features the guys sitting on the floor while they drink some sort of magic tea that makes them disappear (maybe they need to add this drink to their zombie-fighting arsenal). It also features outtakes of Norman sticking his tongue out at Andrew and penetrating his pal by giving him a wet willy.

The promos will make you wish that Daryl Dixon and Rick Grimes could go back in time and fight zombies as samurai in an Akira Kurosawa movie. Obviously Michonne would have to join them, and Toshirô Mifune would definitely have to be the fourth member of their crew. It's extremely depressing that this can't exist.

In other weird "The Walking Dead" news, Robert Kirkman recently revealed that the show could have aired on network TV. However, an absolutely insane NBC executive had this to say about the show: "This is awesome. I really love this. Does it have to have zombies in it?" Basically he was looking for "Revolution," and NBC eventually got it. Unfortunately, the zombie-less post-apocalyptic drama might get cancelled. If it featured zombies, maybe "Revolution" wouldn't be one of the walking dead.

While NBC continues to suffer for making such a fatal error, "The Walking Dead" is getting a spinoff that probably won't be set in Japan or feature Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln in kimonos. It's actually a "companion show," so this means that none of the original characters will appear in it. Fans can only hope that it comes with a new bromance that's just as sweet as the one shared by Norman and Andrew.
