It is hard to believe that it has been almost ten years since Breaking Bad ended. The show was one of the last true water cooler shows.
We could not wait to discuss each episode with our friends and coworkers each week. It was quite the thrill ride and we are still a little bit sad that it had to end. The acting and writing were top tier and Bryan Cranston’s portrayal of Walter White was a major piece of the puzzle.
While Cranston has already donned the famous porkpie hat once again, appearing alongside Aaron Paul in the final season of Better Call Saul, he will soon be making another triumphant return. This time around, we expect the occasion to be a lot less somber. Super Bowl LVII may be a few weeks away but we are more than happy to break the news now.
The Popcorners Instagram account teased the news in early January. The partnership that Walter is forming this time is a bit different, though. He will not be pairing with a drug cartel or a slimy lawyer instead. Instead, he is going to be letting us know all about the awesomeness of PopCorners, a popped corn chip brand.
Cranston, in full Walter White regalia, is seen holding onto a bag of White Cheddar Flavor PopCorners. The tagline is a great callback to the show. “Say. Our. Name.,” the teaser implores and we cannot stop laughing. It is hard not to chuckle when you see a character this menacing telling us about the virtues of a new snack.
The teaser has been included so that you will have the chance to check it out for yourself. Those who wish to see the big moment for themselves are going to have to wait. The commercial is slated to premiere during Super Bowl LVII, which will be held in Arizona on February 12.
It is great to see Bryan Cranston showing us his more comedic side. After all, he did first come to prominence as Dr. Tim Whatley on Seinfeld and is also well known for his iconic turn as the hapless dad Hal on the sitcom classic Malcolm In The Middle.SKM: below-content placeholder
