Breaking Bad 10th anniversary reunion: Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston invite you to "cook" for charity
The campaign is attempting to raise money for charities that work to child abuse, victimization and bullying among other things
'Breaking Bad' might have been over for a decade now, but Walter White's legacy still continues to live. And in a not so fortunate turn of events, he himself lives in the same old RV where he - with his student turned partner, Jesse Pinkman - initially used to cook meth... Yeah, no, things have definitely not been okay for Bryan Cranston, as the actor who played the druglord protagonist on the show, seems to have some struggle moving on from the fact that the show ended about 10 years ago.
And solid proof of that? This recent short film released for a charity fundraiser provides the best insights into whatever happened to the actors post the show's finale, and if you thought you missed the show dearly, wait till you see this!
The video shows Aaron Paul aka Pinkman entering the famous Breaking Bad RV where they cooked their first few grams of meth, in the middle of the desert, and to his shock, he finds Cranston living there. All sorted with a hot pan on an induction oven and a bucket to tend to nature's call.
What follows is a hilarious rendition - very out of character, of course - of the two reuniting. They both seem to have a tough time moving on, as towards the end of the video it is revealed that Paul himself took up the job of being a tour guide in the Breaking Bad studio, and now, he's requesting all the kind hearts on the planet to volunteer and donate for social causes, in exchange for getting a chance to "cook" with them.
Will it be breakfast? Will it be meth? Only the lucky participants will find out!
As it is, it doesn't seem likely that a Breaking Bad reboot is on the horizon any time soon. While there is the spin-off 'Better Call Saul,' which gives fans a dekko into the Alburquerque crime scene that Breaking Bad had so accustomed them too, it is hardly enough.
The prospect of this potential mockumentary for a reunion between the two seems hilarious!
Yet, all of this, for such a noble cause. The campaign is attempting to raise money for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, whose “mission is to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent child victimization." Donations will also go to the Kind Campaign, “an internationally recognized nonprofit organization that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl bullying through their global movement, documentary film, in-school assemblies and educational curriculums.”
Cranston himself had tweeted about the short film, saying: "What do you get when you put me, @aaronpaul_8 and an RV together? Find out for yourself with a chance to cook (a meal) with us in the RV! Just a little something EXTRA special to celebrate 10 years of Breaking Bad. You want in? Enter NOW"
Entry for as little as $10 is allowed too, but a bigger amount not only gets fans more entries, but also gets them signeed photos, scripts and props, along with the highest donation also winning a hazmat suit worn on the show!
