There's really no other way to set this up than to just say it:

What follows is a video made by the group Official Comedy where they spliced a bunch of clips from Breaking Bad and turn it into a cover of R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)." It's not a particularly good cover, and it's certainly not an especially original idea. It is, to be clear, an entirely kitschy, superhero-novel kind of thing.

Still, it is unstoppable clickbait, because you either think that Breaking Bad is brilliant (it is) or that R. Kelly is brilliant (he is) or both (ding, ding, ding).

You can't NOT click it. Didn't you watch the final episode the other night? This is infinity infinities.

So just click it already and then watch it and then go "...Oh" and then send it to someone in an email like, "Hey! It's the Breaking Bad guys singing R. Kelly's 'Ignition (Remix)'" and then that person will see it and get excited and click it and then email you back and go, "It wasn't as good as I thought," and you'll say, "I know," and then they'll say, "I already sent it to 10 other people," and you'll say, "I know that too."

We are staring into the abyss.

And none of us can do anything.

Fuck you, Walter White.

I'm so sorry, Walter White.


I'm going to sit on the floor and eat some ice cream and if I drop some on the ground I'll just go ahead and eat it off the floor because whatever. What's the point of all of this anyway?

    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
