Breaking Bad: The Romantic Comedy
4:59 pm, August 14th | by Colette McIntyre
Oh, the magical magicians of YouTube — constantly manipulating context, making things look like different things, and, when that doesn’t work, adding cute furry things to other things because nothing is better than a thing with a cat in it. Following in the great tradition of Scary Mary, the nightmarish Mrs Doubtfire, and a dozen other Internet recuts, MHK Productions has taken a grim meditation on good and evil and turned it into a rom-com. The bizarro Breaking Bad is a heartwarming romp about one chemistry teacher’s unorthodox love for his bad boy student. That’s right: Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-NG…and, well, evidently doing a whole lot else since, spoiler alert, Jesse gets pregnant. Is it weird that we find the whole thing surprisingly tender? Watch the Marvin Gaye-scored madness below.
