'Breaking Bad' Stars Endorse High School Presidential Candidates (Video)

Los Angeles-area students received a special boost of support from actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, who recorded in-character videos for their campaigns.


Maxwell Ulin is running for student body president and Breaking Bad characters Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) are on his side.

In character, Cranston and Paul urge students of Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences to vote for Maxwell, a Los Angeles-area student who is running against classmate Summer Kennedy.

His opponent Summer got fellow Breaking Bad character Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) to help her campaign. 

The video endorsing Summer is private, but in the video above, Maxwell pulls out the big guns when a very determined Walter “strongly suggests” students vote for Maxwell.

Cranston ends his serious speech as Walter with: “Vote for Maxwell. Do you understand?”

“Sorry Summer, it’s just business,” Paul says in the video.

It is unknown how Maxwell and Summer got the Breaking Bad cast to endorse their student election, but if Maxwell doesn’t win -- this could get interesting.
