Yep, this happened. During what we can only assume was a mesmerizing episode of the 'Steve Wilkos Show,' an Emergency Alert System interrupted a Montana television station with a message claiming that "the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living." Meaning? Yes, a zombie attack was underway.

The alert -- which was an obvious prank -- was quickly yanked from the air and replaced with an apology from the network, KRTV. But as to the results of that teen cheater's lie detector test? Unfortunately we have no answer, thanks to this zombie hoax!

The next time someone decides to pull this in the respectable town of Great Falls, Montana, they best be certain the 'Steve Wilkos Show' has ended first!
