“Breaking Bad” star gives hilarious response to Alburquerque teenager asking what the actor liked about the New Mexico city
Bryan Cranston delivered an epic “your mom” joke at Comic-Con after an Albuquerque native asked the actor what he thought about the city where hit AMC drama “Breaking Bad” was filmed.
“How was it?” the boy asked Cranston during a panel promoting “SuperMansion,” a Crackle animated series about aging superheroes. “It’s my hometown, I just want to know, how’d you like it? Did you have fun there?”
“Yeah, I’d go and visit your mother once in a while!” Cranston replied.
The crowd erupted in applause. And then the actor dropped his mic.
The video hit YouTube on Friday, and over 4.1 million people have gotten a good laugh at an Albuquerque boy’s expense since then.
Cranston seemed pretty proud of his joke, which gained immediate traction with the Twitter and Reddit communities.
