Microsoft is really keen to continue its US marketing blitz, so beside the Windows 8 ad it rolled out last weekend, the company also debuted a commercial aired during the popular “The Walking Dead” show.

The video isn’t yet available online, but NeoWin writes that the TV ad brought Windows 8’s touch capabilities in the spotlight with the help of a zombie who used the built-in instant messaging client.

A keyboard also shows up in the advertisement, but it’s not yet clear whether this is the one that’s going to be released with the Surface tablet or a standard one.

Windows 8 is slated to be unveiled on October 25 during a New York event that’ll also host the public debut of the Surface tablet.
