Breaking Bad’s Vince Gilligan Joins TikTok, Zoomers Swarm Comments
For those of you blissfully unaware of the happenings over on TikTok, you might now know that Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul have recently found a new, very dedicated audience in Generation Z. However, while they appreciate the work of creator Vince Gilligan just as much (if not more) than their parents before them, they are showing this appreciation through a very different medium – shitposting.
Whether it's saying that Jesse Pinkman is "babygirl coded", editing Jimmy McGill to be a cat girl, or making Kim Wexler fancams, Breaking Bad TikTok is truly a sight to behold. And now, it's a sight that Vince gets to see for himself, as he and the team make the incredibly brave decision to set up an official TikTok account – for better or worse.
Vince Gilligan's first appearance on the account came through a message marking the 15th anniversary of Breaking Bad's pilot episode, in which he thanks fans and shows off the real Heisenberg hat. Yet while this was fairly tame, the comments are anything but.
"Great vid Vince! When is Better Rim Kim coming out?" asks one TikTok user, speaking for the masses. And this uh, interesting idea for a Kim Wexler spin-off is far from the only idea that fans are pitching directly to Vince.
"We need Better Fuel Huell," says one user, along with a series of angry emojis. "Cast me in Better Fuel Huell," replies another Huell Babineaux enthusiast.
These are far from the only characters being shown some love too. Here's a list of just some of the other spinoff suggestions in the comments:
- Better Ring Fring
- Better Bust Gus
- Elden Fring
- Better Make Breakfast
- Better Fuck Chuck
- Breaking Fast
- Breaking Bad 2: Return of Flynn
- Breaking Bad: The Rise of Heisenberg Jr.
- Minerals (A Hank Schrader Story)
Even if fans don't have burning requests for another show set in the Breaking Bad universe, they aren't short of creative comments for Vince and the crew.
"Can you make Walt and Jesse kiss!?!?!?", reads one message. "Vince where's the Waltuh Fortnite skin?" says another.
Other than that, the comments are full of viewers declaring their love for Vince – or Mr. Breaking Bad, as some call him. Thankfully, the crew seem to be taking it in good spirits, even referencing the "Bravo Vince" meme in the TikTok's caption.
It's worth mentioning that TikTok is far from the only app celebrating this new wave of attention on Breaking Bad, following the Better Call Saul finale. Twitter has also been a hub of activity in the fanbase, with meme accounts springing up that reference both the latest and oldest episodes in the series. This, in turn, led to many commissioning equally shitposty Cameos from the cast of both shows, which can be viewed in a beautifully composed compilation here.
