After almost five years of murder, mayhem, and, oh-so-much meth, it’s insane to remember that Breaking Bad‘s first episode was actually funny. Bryan Cranston as a bumbly father caught in a pair of tighty-whities, Aaron Paul as a wise-cracking burnout — the premiere had the makings of a great buddy dramedy before Breaking Bad transformed into one of the greatest, most horrifying series of all time.
So it’s no surprise that a clever YouTube user found a way to turn the dark AMC hit into a light-hearted family series in a new mash-up. Using Foreigner’s “White Lie” as a backdrop, the video (embedded below) uses rooftop pizza, Badger, and redecorating mishaps as inspiration for the opening credits of a 1995 series. (Though, if we’re being honest, Breaking Bad in 1995 would swap Paul for Sasha Mitchell, right?) The only thing it’s missing is a box of Hidden Treasures for Walt Jr.’s breakfast.
