Video: Out of the disco closet on 'Breaking Bad'

That DVD that Walt gave Hank? It's worse than you think

Video: Out of the disco closet on ‘Breaking Bad’


Although this clip contains scenes from “Confessions”, Sunday’s episode of Breaking Bad, it is guaranteed spoiler free. That’s because the maker of the YouTube video took certain, um, liberties with the original footage.

On the show, after a tense showdown with Hank and Marie in a Mexican restaurant, Walt silently lays a DVD on the table and walks out the door with Skyler. That raised two questions immediately: Why did Walt rob us of the opportunity to see that incredibly perky waiter whip up a batch of guacamole right at the table? And what was on that mysterious disc?

Only Walt’s deepest secret, set to the music of “Funkytown” by Lipps, Inc. The rather acrobatic footage is from Bryan Cranston’s previous show, Malcolm in the Middle. Gotta move on, indeed.
