Hollister 'American Idol' Castoff Enters 'Walking Dead' Contest

The local teen's band made a zombie-themed video and submitted it to the AMC show's contest.

Although Hollister teen Jesaiah Baer did not make the top 40 of this season of American Idol, her music/television dreams are far from over.

Baer impressed the Idol judges in her initial audition, but failed to advance past the Hollywood round of the show.

But since her exit from the Fox talent competition, Baer and her band, known as Smith Alley, have put their focus on a different TV hit — AMC's The Walking Dead.

Baer's father claims to be the world's biggest Walking Dead fan, and he encouraged Smith Alley to submit a video to the show's online contest. So they recorded a song called "Zombies," and went all out in the video, using green screens and high-qaulity zombie make-up to recreate a particularly gross scene from season two of the hit show.

The creators of the winning video submission will be flown to Los Angeles to meet the cast of the show at the season four premiere.
