The Super Bowl is only one week away and PopCorners is offering fans a closer look at their highly-anticipated Breaking Bad promo featuring Aaron Paul, Bryan Cranston, and Raymond Cruz.
The men reprise their roles as Jesse Pinkman, Walter White, and Tuco Salamanca in the one-minute ad released by the snack company. In this promo titled “Breaking Good,” Walt and Jesse try peddling six flavors of PopCorners to Tuco who won’t be satisfied until there’s seven. See the hilarity unfold in the teaser, above, and don’t miss the ads on Game Day when the Super Bowl airs Sunday, February 12.
Just one week after it was announced that Aaron Paul is joining Bryan Cranston in PopCorners’ Super Bowl ad as their Breaking Bad characters, Jesse Pinkman and Walter White, the first teaser featuring them together again is out.
And as the video above proves, it is so good to have them back together as Jesse tries to start the RV and the two argue about whether he’s going to flood it. It’s a reimagination of a scene from Season 2’s “4 Days Out” from the show. Breaking Soon, it promises at the end.
Furthermore, PopCorners has revealed that Raymond Cruz is reprising his role as kingpin Tuco Salamanca (check out the photo below) and that Breaking Bad creator, head writer, executive producer and director, Vince Gilligan, directed the commercial and teaser videos.
Original story (1/19/2023):
Walt and Jesse are together again!
PopCorners has revealed that Aaron Paul will be joining Bryan Cranston, with both reprising their Breaking Bad roles as Jesse Pinkman and Walter White, in its Super Bowl LVII commercial. The campaign’s first video teaser, “Lawn Chair,” featuring Paul, is now out, and you can watch it below.
In the video, Jesse is seen snacking on PopCorners White Cheddar while sitting in one of those iconic lawn chairs. (The other next to him is empty.) As the camera pans out from where he is watching the sun set over the desert, we see Jesse and Walt’s infamous RV (the original seen in the Breaking Bad pilot and used throughout the show). Jesse’s phone rings. “Yo, what’s up?” he asks.
It was on January 4 that we first learned about Cranston’s involvement in a Breaking Bad commercial for PopCorners during the Super Bowl. “Breaking soon,” he wrote on Instagram along with a photo of him as Walter White, with a PopCorners bag in hand.
This Breaking Bad reunion comes soon after the prequel, Better Call Saul, starring Bob Odenkirk, ended its six-season run on AMC. It was in the final season that Cranston and Paul reprised their roles as Walt and Jesse, the characters they played throughout Breaking Bad‘s five-season run on AMC from 2008 to 2013. Previously, Cranston made a cameo in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, which starred Paul.
Now we’ll just have to wait and see if anyone else from Breaking Bad will be joining them in the Super Bowl commercial.
Super Bowl LVII, Sunday, February 12, 6:30/5:30c, Fox
