Watch Hugh Laurie battle zombies in bizarre House dream sequence

Did you see the episode of House where he battled ... zombies? It sounds like the setup for a joke, I know, but Monday night's installment saw the good doctor—for a brief stretch—taking apart a small flock of the undead with surgical precision.

Yes, it was a dream sequence, but that doesn't eliminate any of the awesomeness. House's "ax cane" that also transforms into a shotgun? Beheadings? Pithy one-liners? Zombie feeding frenzy? Brilliant.

I gave up watching House years ago, but looking at this clip—in which the not-so-limpy doctor defends his apocalyptic hospital against brain-hungry former colleagues—it seems like the show has developed a wry playfulness in its old age. And located a bunch of horror DVDs.
