Since the moment Better Call Saul was announced, Breaking Bad fans have been wondering whether the show will give them some more great moments with brilliant protagonist Walter White. Well, it turns out Bryan Cranston had some more to give us, but it was instead courtesy of a hilarious Esurance commercial that you can check out below…
The basic premise of the commercial finds a woman stopping by the pharmacy. Instead of her normal pharmacist, however, she sees Walter White in full yellow cooking gear. As usual, he is in no mood to take anyone’s crap. The basic premise of the commercial is actually really creative. Walter White is sort of a pharmacist. He deals with drugs. He basically knows his way around, but at the end of the day, he’s not the right pharmacist. And the majority of insurance plans are only sort of right for consumers. They have a lot of elements that are correct, but at the end of the day, it’s not perfect. Except apparently with Esurance, who lets you customize your own policy. Seriously. Just look at this face...
Now, I’m not saying this commercial is so great that I’m going to run out and purchase ESurance immediately, but when people ask me what commercials I liked during the Super Bowl tomorrow, this is the first one I’m going to bring up. Guaranteed. It’s just a perfectly put together forty seconds.
Also, let this be a lesson to Better Call Saul. The world loves Walter White. So, if there’s any way the new show can work in a chance for the character to come back in the flesh, the entire world will run to watch it. Because every day that passes since the show originally went off the air is another day tons and tons of people are marathoning through Breaking Bad and catching up.
Since the whole point is to drum up business, you can check out Esurance here.
