As I've discussed before, Breaking Bad is not only a critically-acclaimed show, it's got a faithful fanbase. And in America, where there are fans, there's the opportunity to make a buck. (Not that I'm against that sort of thing. Buy our book!) Celebrity endorsements made by actors, athletes, and musicians are common - and sometimes not too well-thought-through, as this link can attest. So far, I haven't seen official endorsements by the Breaking Bad actors, although that's a fun line to speculate upon - Bryan Cranston for porkpie hats! Anna Gunn for Albertson's deli take-out! Giancarlo Esposito for KFC! - but others around the ABQ area are certainly doing their best to cash in on the show's popularity.
Submitted for your consideration:
1. While in the greater Albuquerque area, why not take a Breaking Bad tour? You can see the car wash and the "Crystal Palace," among other locations. You can take a trolley tour (well, it's the off-season for another couple of weeks) of popular locations and even end with a complimentary drink at Los Pollos! The city's Convention & Visitor's Bureau has gotten in on the act with a link to information about the show's filming in the area on its official Website - check it out here!
2. Want a little more "Crystal Blue Persuasion"? Try a yummy "Blue Sky" doughnut from Rebel Donuts! Don't worry - the sugar is real, but the meth is fake!
