Everyone’s favourite Walking Dead hero Daryl Dixon has explained the Hollywood sock.
When male actors do nude scenes or sex scenes, they often say they wear the sock so that some of their body is hidden from their colleagues.
Leave it to Norman Reedus and Jimmy Kimmel to let the world in on what the sock is really all about.
Norman said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! it’s not a Red Hot Chili Pepper kind of thing.
Reedus spent much of Season 7 a captured man, cowering naked in a corner, while he starved to death. But he never folded, not like that wiener Eugene Porter. Reedus says he’s OK doing naked scenes – it’s everyone else that’s uncomfortable.
It was the imprisoned Daryl Dixon scenes in Season 7 that launched everyone’s fascination with the tune that the Negan group uses repeatedly to torture Daryl.
Easy Street featuring Jim Bianco and Petra Haden from the Collapsable Hearts Club was featured on last November’s episode titled The Cell.
If you want to get all technical, the song really couldn’t exist in the world of the Walking Dead.
“Interestingly, the song only became available to stream on Spotify last Friday (4 November) meaning it technically wouldn’t actually exist within the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead which began in 2010,” The Independent reports. – Sarah
