Breaking Bad Esurance Super Bowl Commercial: Watch Walter White’s Return!
Bryan Cranston revived his most beloved/feared character, Walter White of “Breaking Bad,” for an Esurance commercial during Sunday’s Super Bowl. Watch the video below!
In the commercial, a woman comes to pick up her prescription from a pharmacy, only to see White pop up from behind the counter in his iconic meth-making gear. The idea is that White isn’t “Greg” the pharmacist, but he’s “sorta Greg,” because they’re both “over 50 years old, used to have a Pontiac Aztec and have a lot of experience with drugs.”
White then tries to get the woman to take a suspicious-looking substitute for her prescription. “It’s sorta your prescription,” he explains. She refuses. He insists. They go back and forth, and she eventually gives in. The point is that Esurance gives customers insurance that’s a good fit for “you,” not “someone sorta like you.” We just like seeing Walter White again.
Ahead of Sunday, it was known that Lindsay Lohan would be part of the “Sorta You” campaign for Esurance, and her full commercial also premiered during the Super Bowl. She plays a horrible driver who’s “sorta” like the mom picking up kids from school. Watch both videos below, and tell us what you think!
