Just when we thought we'd seen it all, there's more. In anticipation of the final season of "Breaking Bad," we've seen interviews with the cast and crew, set photos, behind-the-scene videos and a possible spin-off series. What more could we ask for? The second half of the final fifth season returns August 11, and we have plenty to keep us busy in the meantime. But just when you thought the "Breaking Bad" hype was over, something new flew in from left field.
Animator Brian Anderson has provided "Breaking Bad" fans with a new take on the epic AMC series with a LEGO twist. Anderson created the parody based off the Traveller's Tales LEGO video game series. The four-minute and thirty-second YouTube video features LEGO versions of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) and other popular "Breaking Bad" characters.
Traveller's Tales LEGO videogames take big time movies, comics and/or television shows worthy of their own video game and put them in a LEGO universe. Their more popular games include "LEGO The Lord of the Rings," "LEGO Star Wars" and "LEGO Batman." It's not entirely clear how a "Breaking Bad" video game would work, but fans have expressed great interest. The video has accumulated more than 250,000 views since it was posted on April 29.
The video features impressive effects that bring "Breaking Bad" into the LEGO universe with clever and witty techniques. Various animations and images that are commonplace in the AMC series are displayed with a LEGO twist, appeasing "Breaking Bad" diehards.
If you're not currently caught up on "Breaking Bad," think twice before giving the video a look. It gives away everything up to season five. If you're looking for an easy, entertaining way to catch up with "Breaking Bad" before it returns this summer, here's the answer. Enjoy!
"Breaking Bad" returns to AMC on August 11, 2013.
