Aaron Paul is exceptionally good at delivering Jesse Pinkman’s “Breaking Bad” and “El Camino” lines. Turns out, parody singer Nick Lutsko’s no slouch himself.

A few hours after uploading its “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” Netflix posted Lutsko’s “The Ballad of Jesse Pinkman” to YouTube. In it, Lutsko cobbles together a pretty damn good song out of Vince Gilligan’s pretty damn good dialogue for the former Cap’n Cook.

Watch the video above. Dude can sing.

Lutsko wrote, performed and produced the song, though with a pretty big tip of the pork pie hat to Gilligan, of course.

Here’s the chorus:

You don’t give a s— about me/You said I was no good
I’m not turning down the money/I’m turning down the great Heisenberg
As long as you get what you want/Say you want this/Say the words
I want nothing to do with the great Heisenberg

There are plenty more classic “Breaking Bad” lines where those came from, all pretty much perfectly timed to Paul’s on-screen performance from the Emmy-hoarding AMC series, which ran for five seasons from 2008 to 2013.

“El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” is out on Netflix now. It is also receiving a limited theatrical release this weekend.
