Jimmy Fallon 'Breaking Bad' Parody Gets Online Laughs (Video)

Friday, 13 Sep 2013 12:59 PM

Jimmy Fallon took on AMC’s popular “Breaking Bad” with a 13-minute parody called “Joking Bad,” and while Fallon isn’t dying like Walter White, he’s playing off his six-month deadline to move to the “Tonight Show,” according to E! Online.

Fallon hears the “bad” news that he’ll leave “Late Night” and transforms into a bad joke dealer, a la “Breaking Bad’s” Walter White, going bald and even losing his pants.

He stumbles across Steve Higgins, Late Night’s announcer, selling bad jokes in an alley. “What do you call a cow that fell in a honey pot? Here comes Honey Moo Moo,” Fallon reads from a slip of paper. “That’s got to be the lamest joke I’ve ever seen.”

His initial horror at the bad joke goes away when he watches Higgins get a stack of bills for the joke’s sale. The two team up for a life of crime.

With cameos by several "Breaking Bad" stars, including Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, the spoof is a perfect example of Fallon’s fame for nailing performances. In the past, he’s done Downtown Sixbey and the Housewives of Late Night, according to Today Entertainment.

The parody is chock full of jokes that will appeal to "Breaking Bad" fans, Today said, calling the skit “comedy gold.” And like the real show, a twist in the end draws hysterical laughter from watchers.

Fans of both Fallon and "Breaking Bad" fell in love.

Wrote Millard on the Today article, “BEST SINGLE SHOW HE HAS EVER DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fantastic parody……..”

The video has pulled in millions of views already, and Fallon went to Twitter to express his thanks.
