Walter White says "say my name" in esurance Super Bowl 2015 commercial

New, comments

Walter White is back. Esurance puts Bryan Cranston back in his Breaking Bad hazmat suit in their Super Bowl ad. The show ended last season after six seasons and a tremendous following so his brief return for this commercial is a rare treat for those who were avid followers of the AMC show.

For those not familiar, Walter White was a high school chemistry teacher who was diagnosed with cancer. Because of his chemistry background, he came up the with the idea to make meth as a way of paying for his treatments. Without giving away anything else, we'll just leave it at that.

So, you can see how having a meth dealer behind the counter at your local drug store might just be a bit off-putting. As he said, he's "sorta" the other guy. But not really.

Esurance actually ran a couple of ads with this premise. The other had Lindsey Lohan trying to pick up a couple kids from school.
