Zombie Kid all grown up.


'I Like Turtles' Zombie Kid Is Back For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The early YouTube meme “Zombie Kid,” known for saying “I like turtles,” has resurfaced 13 years later promoting “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.”

The new video by Paramount Pictures replicates the original, tying in the iconic phrase to promote the film amidst an ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.

Since going viral, Jonathan Ware, the Zombie Kid’s actual name, has appeared on “Tosh.0,” where a joke connected the iconic video to “TMNT.”

In 2023, Ware launched a short-lived YouTube channel, “It's Turtle Time,” garnering 1,000 subscribers before its closure.
