Video: Walter White Makes Surprise Appearance At EDC In Vegas
Television's favorite drug czar popped by Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend in Las Vegas to introduce an EDM act.
English trance group Above & Beyond have a track they call "Walter White," named for the teacher-turned-meth kingpin from AMC's Breaking Bad. Actor Bryan Cranston made a surprise appearance during Above & Beyond's Saturday night set at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, briefly reprising his Walter White persona by uttering an iconic Breaking Bad line into the mic: "Say my name." As the crowd cheered he said the follow-up line, "You're goddamn right," then pushed the button to kick off the track.
Apparently, Cranston raged all night.
Here's the scene in question. It's from episode seven of season five. Originally titled "Everybody Wins," the episode was ultimately called "Say My Name."
Above & Beyond formed in 2000 in London. Here's the original mix of "Walter White."
Meanwhile, actor RJ Mitte—who played Walter White's son, Walt, Jr.—was making a special appearance of his own over the weekend. Mitte walked the runway for a Vivienne Westwood show in Milan, wearing a slightly NSFW breastplate with a black and white photo of breasts on it, New York Magazine reports.
