Walter White and Jesse Pinkman return in new Breaking Bad-inspired Super Bowl ad.
PopCorners debuted a sneak peek of their 2023 Super Bowl ad on Thursday, featuring Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) from the hit show Breaking Bad. As reported by People, the full commercial, which is inspired by the series, will include both Pinkman and his on-screen partner, Walter White (Bryan Cranston), when it airs on game night.
The teaser video shows Jesse Pinkman sitting in a lawn chair in his classic white jumpsuit and enjoying a bag of White Cheddar PopCorners in the desert. The iconic white RV from the show can also be seen in the background, adding to the nostalgic feel of the ad.
Jesse takes a phone call in the teaser and asks, “Yo, what’s up?”. The caller’s identity is not revealed before the camera fades to black, and the date of the Super Bowl is displayed on the screen.
Recently, PopCorners and Bryan Cranston posted a picture of Cranston dressed as his iconic Breaking Bad character Heisenberg, holding a bag of PopCorners in the desert.
