Zombies have already been popular for a while, but after a naked homeless man was shot while eating another man in Miami last week, the world went zombie crazy. One Russian prankster even decided to have a little fun with Miami citizens by dressing up as a zombie in recent days—and nearly got double-tapped for his trouble.

Vitaly Zdorovetskiy got a buddy with a video camera to follow him, then decked out in some pretty convincing zombie gear and took to the streets in Miami—terrorizing basketball players and folks in parking lots.

It was all pretty funny until one frightened passerby pulled out a gun and started trying to drop the non-so-undead Zdorovetskiy.

Though he posted the video anyway, he at least included a note to warn potential copycats: "Almost Got Shot at 2:00! DO NOT TRY IT!"
