Two days ago, on November 15, YouTube channel ANIMEME uploaded their Breaking Bad/Frozen parody and it may just be the best viral video ever on the Internet in terms of spot on parody. Disney Studios’ Frozen was a massive hit with kids young and old across the world. Halloween this year featured a load of Frozen themed costumes and this animated feature put Disney back into the number one spot for children’s films and brought a newfound popularity to the old Hans Christian Anderson tale of the Snow Queen.
Better Call Saul sent a greetings card of sorts from the set in the form of a video behind-the-scenes teaser and it was posted not only on AMCs Internet site but on their official YouTube channel titled, AMC. The only people who may not know who Saul Goodman is have either been hiding under a rock for the last six years or never felt the urge to watch Breaking Bad (2008 – 2013) on television or Netflix, or even iTunes. Bob Odenkirk played the savvy lawyer to Bryan Cranston’s Walter White, aka Heisenberg and Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman a sort of three muskateers scenario without out the fourth unless counting Giancarlo Esposito’s Gus Fring as the temporary additional musketeer.
While Bryan Cranston saw the humorous side to Florida Mom Susan Schrijver starting a petition to take down the Walter White and Jesse Pinkman action figures from Toys R Us shelves Aaron Paul did not find it the least bit funny and he took on the woman with his own petition and as one @JessePinkman tweet might say, “Yeah B*tch.” Fighting fire with fire, @AaronPaul tweeted a link to another online petition asking the toy store to put the Heisenberg and Jesse Pinkman six inch action figures back on the shelves.
Uptight Florida mother Susan Schrivjer, who told the world on The Today Show that she was “shocked and appalled” that Breaking Bad action figures were on sale in Toys R Us outlets called for signatures to ban these heinous creations from being sold to children, 8000 plus signatures later and one cannot find any of these despicable things even on the store’s website; but stop for just one moment and ask this question, does this “Florida mom” work for Mezco? Is this her Heisenberg mechanization to become an action figure Queenpin in the world of cheaply manufactured toys used to cash in on a show’s success?
According to contactmusic.com Breaking Bad costumes are a very hot search in Google at the moment. They say that the this number is three times larger this year. So it looks like in terms of popularity, a Breaking Bad Halloween is in order this year, so “trick or treat…b*tch.”
