Over the five seasons that the show Breaking Bad
ran, it became increasingly common for people to joke about how it was really a very differently toned sequel
to the comedy Malcolm in the Middle
, which also starred Bryan Cranston. At times Cranston and the creators of the Breaking Bad
had even cracked a few jokes about the supposed "coincidences" between the two very, very different shows. However, over the weekend a video clip was released showing a potential "alternate ending" to Breaking Bad
, in which Cranston's wakes up in bed with his wife
and admits that Breaking Bad
was all just a dream. It's an amusing little clip that the Breaking Bad
crew included on the DVD release of the series. And the video got everyone talking about it.
So, of course, Sony Pictures had to issue a takedown on the YouTube clip
. Because, apparently, no one is allowed to have any fun until they pay Sony.
Spoiler alert: this doesn't make anyone more interested in buying the DVD. It just pisses people off.
