On Sunday night, there was a very peculiar overlap in the TV schedules. The latest episode of “Breaking Bad” aired during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. The natures of both shows create big topics of conversation on Twitter, but they also crossed over in a way that was totally unexpected.
Miley obviously won the “Most talked about moment” of the show. Her twerking with Robin Thicke was just about everywhere in the day after the show. Everyone was talking about it, or watching the video if they hadn’t seen it already. Everyone, including Hank and Marie Schrader.
A viral video from YouTube user Sam Barnett combined two of the big topics of conversation from Sunday night into one amazing mash-up.
“BREAKING BAD” SPOILERS BELOW
As anyone who watched the most recent episode of “Breaking Bad” knows, Walter gives a taped confession to Hank and Marie that turns out to be less of an admission of guilt and more the greatest, most sinister power move of all time.
Hank and Marie are utterly stunned and left speechless standing in the middle of their purple-decorated living room.
And while it seems obvious now, what Barnett did was to put the Miley VMA performance on the Schrader’s TV screen and force us to acknowledge that we had pretty much the same reaction.
Check it out in the video above, and head over to MTV News to read our most recent recap of the episode, which take a look at what we know about the finale.
