Going Broke Over Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad might be the best TV show I’ve ever watched (of course, we’ll see if the ending messes that up for me). There are only 7 episodes left, so I thought it was about time to make a post. I’m not going to get in-depth; I’ll save that for when the show is over. Today is just for some of the fun stuff that has sprung up around this wonderful series. In other words, I’ll “tread lightly.”

First up: If you need a recap of the show, watch this “Middle School Musical” version by local commercial masters Rhett & Link.

Wash The A1A Car Wash:

Last weekend, Breaking Bad fans were treated to a number of car washes around the country being rebranded as “Walter White’s A1A Car Wash” (You’ve tried the rest; now try the best!).¬† People who went in to have an A1 day (and a clean car) were treated to various prizes, such as Breaking Bad air fresheners and T-shirts! I’m sure Bogdan Wolynetz would be super jealous that his little business has expanded so rapidly!

 

In-Universe Websites

The creators of Breaking Bad are masters of viral marketing. See a website on the show? Its real-life counterpart probably exists. Remember when Walt Jr. (when he wasn’t eating) made a website for Walter when he was dying of cancer? Yep. SaveWalterWhite.com really exists, goofy Geocities-style yellow-on-green font and all.

It doesn’t stop there, though. Are you having legal trouble in Albuquerque, NM? Have you been caught with a live tiger? Want to sue someone? Maybe you were ALLEGEDLY¬†dealing drugs? Did you get a theft misdemeanor with an attached double homicide?

You better call Saul.

CandyCandy!

While I could spend the next 12 years showing you all the awesome T-shirts that are based on the show, I wanted to show you this instead. I’ve heard that it “kicks like a mule with its balls wrapped in duct tape.” And that it’s nearly 100% pure. This rock candy is the good stuff. And at this price for a pound! A steal! They must’ve robbed a train to sell rock candy at this price!
