Ah, Mardi Gras. A grand tradition that combines pageantry and history with...binge drinking. The city of New Orleans is known the world over for, among other things, its association with the world of the supernatural. Fitting then that, according to The International Business Times, this year's Mardi Gras festivities will be presided over by a vampire and an expert zombie killer.

(The Vampire Diaries) and (The Walking Dead) will be the co-Grand Marshal of the 2014 Mardi Gras event. Unsurprisingly, the CW is using the opportunity to promote the series; Somerhalder will be handing out special Vampire Diaries beads. What, AMC, no string of decapitated zombie heads to offer?

As cool as this sounds, I hope they don't allow Reedus to drink and...use a crossbow.

What do you guys think?
