HOLLYWOOD – It was the highlight of Superbowl Sunday for many, Walter White returning to their TV screens for a short spot advertising Esurance car insurance.
The ‘hilarious’ spot features a woman going to a pharmacy to be greeted by the Breaking Bad star who gives her a prescription. He repeats his famous line ‘Say my name!’
However, the former Meth cook revealed that he deeply regretted making the advert. He spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec:
You know the thing is whether I’m Walter White, Bryan Cranston or Heisenberg, the fact is I have a reputation to maintain. Sure they gave me enough money to retire for the rest of my life, but a car insurance commercial? Seriously? I used to be the one who knocks, now I’m the one who k’chings. It’s frankly embarrassing. I used to cook meth and kill people, consort with neo-Nazis and destroy families, but I had standards, an ethos. And now this. Whoring myself for a lousy million dollars. And I can’t even blame it on my cancer because I’m in remission/dead.
Walter White will be next seen in Better Call Saul and a Pizza Hut Commercial.
