‘Walking Dead’ Star Norman Reedus Explains Why He Licks His Fans on ‘Conan’ (Video)

The actor’s tongue is quickly gaining popularity

Let’s hope licking can’t turn someone into a zombie.

“Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus appeared on Tuesday’s “Conan,” where he explained to host Conan O’Brien why he has a tendency to lick his fanbase.

Reedus said it started innocently enough when he began licking his “Walking Dead” cast mates (naturally). He then travelled to London and took several selfies in which he licked a few famous monuments.

Reedus’ tongue quickly grew into an internet sensation, with Urban Dictionary defining “reedus” as a verb meaning “to lick someone’s face.” A woman in the audience even wore a t-shirt reading “Norman Please #Reedus Me.”

Surprisingly, licking someone is not the oddest thing a fan has asked of the “Boondock Saints” actor.

One fan donned a rubber horse head and asked the actor to sit on his back and ride him around the room. Reedus said he has even had fathers approach him and say,”Lick my daughter.”
