Bruce Campbell has been many things over the years. He will always be Ash, but he was also a damned fine Brisco County jr. For the last five years he’s been finding a whole new audience as Same Axe on the hit USA series, Burn Notice.

To promote the return of the series this week, Campbell appeared on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live. During the interview, he took an opportunity to taste the hostess’s Lady Gaga style meat costume, give his own personal recipe for fake blood and then to break the hearts of millions (including the host)y by re-affirming that there will be no Ash in the upcoming remake of ‘Living Dead’.

Bonus… Campbell also manages time to slide in a “beat me with your meat” comment.
