When Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) met Jesus (Tom Payne), they got off to a rather rocky start. He stole from them, they gave chase, things got tricky and a truck full of food ended up sinking into a lake.
In the moment, the chase came across as frantic, scary and rather dangerous. You’d be surprised what a difference some alternative music can make, though. A crafty YouTuber has substituted the traditional “Walking Dead” score with “Boots” Randolph’s “Yakety Sax” — better known to many as the “Benny Hill Show” theme song.
Instead of them trying to take out the man as if their lives depended on it, Rick and Daryl find themselves in a wacky calamity as they drive and run circles around Jesus, trying to pin him down.
Of course, the end result is the same, as Jesus takes a truck door to the head. At least it doesn’t hurt as much to watch with the silly music playing.
