Never say never. The Breaking Bad boys are back briefly for Super Bowl 2023. Bryan Cranston reunites with co-stars Aaron Paul and Raymond Cruz for a PopCorners Super Bowl ad directed by Vince Gilligan.
Jesse marvels at Walt’s latest concoction — an air-popped, not fried snack — and he can’t keep his hands/mouth off of them. “No, we don’t eat our own supply,” Walt reminds his pupil while Jesse grows more excited. “Everyone’s going to want a taste,” Jesse raves, “and I know just the guy to talk to.”
Enter their highly unhinged distributor Tuco (Raymond Cruz), who grabs the snack from Jesse with suspicion, before a pork-pie-hatted Walt, er, Heisenberg commands Tuco to “Say. Their. Name.” He samples one, issues his signature stamp of approval, and frightens them into offering not just six flavors but seven. “We’re going to eat a lot of snacks together,” he sums up with a sinister laugh.
Fun Fact: Compared to chips, PopCorners has half the amount of fat and less sodium. If you’re looking for a healthier alternative for your favorite savory snack, this is a great pick!
