Earlier this week, Daily Dead was invited to an unusual press event at the Escape Hotel LA for YouTube’s series, Fight of the Living Dead which just premiered online on the YouTube Red Channel. We had the chance to sit down with two of participants in Fight of the Living Dead, viral stars MagicofRahat and Brandon Bowen to hear about why they were pumped to participate in the 72-hour long escape room-like experience, how they prepared to take on zombies, and more.

Check out our video interview below, along with the first episode, and be sure to look for upcoming episodes of Fight of the Living Dead exclusively on the YouTube Red Channel.
