‘Breaking Bad’ on ‘Sesame Street’ in Crazy Retro Clips

Breaking Bad Sesame Street
PBS

It can be maddening waiting for the new season of ‘Breaking Bad.’  We’re just over a month away from the premiere of the show’s final season, and what we know about the new season could barely fill a porkpie hat!  Sure, there’s the occasional poster or AMC’s Sunday marathon to give us our fix, but maybe all we need to do is look to the past for all the ‘Breaking Bad’ we’ll ever need.

‘Breaking Bad’ season 5 will premiere on Sunday, July 15, and not a moment too soon after season 4 finale “Face Off” kept to its word rather literally by sending longtime villaing Gustavo “Gus” Fring out with a bang.  So while we won’t see Giancarlo Esposito face off with Walter White this summer (instead, we’ll have to wait until Esposito proves equally menacing in NBC’s fall drama ‘Revolution‘) his ‘Breaking Bad’ turn put him on the map in a big way.

How big, you ask?  Big enough that the moment we found out that Giancarlo Esposito once held the role of camp counselor “Mickey” on ‘Sesame Street,’ we knew we had to let it blow you away just as it did us.  In all its sublimely “WTF”  glory, behold “The Chicken Man’ and his best friend Big Bird!

And as if that weren’t weird enough, today also unearthed yet another classic ad for ‘Breaking Bad’ star Aaron Paul, this time schilling Corn Pops instead of Juicy Fruit. Who knew that Bryan Cranston wasn’t the only one acting silly on TV before his ‘Breaking Bad’ days?

Don’t forget to check out the first of eight new episodes of ‘Breaking Bad’ on Sunday, July 15, and then let us never speak of this again. Incidentally, speak of this again in the comments!
