Feb. 6 (UPI) — AMC promoted next weekend’s mid-Season 7 premiere of “The Walking Dead” with a comedic Super Bowl-themed teaser.

The 15-second clip shows villain Negan’s signature barbed wire-covered, baseball bat smashing a football ball lying in a field.

“Football season is over,” declared the message that appeared across the screen, along with the reminder that fresh episodes of the zombie-apocalypse drama will resume airing Feb. 12.

About 15.2 million viewers tuned in for the 90-minute, mid-Season 7 finale when it was broadcast in December.
