Actor Aaron Paul went on social media to announce a top secret project.
The project was a Breaking Bad spinoff starring Paul's character, Jesse Pinkman. And it was completley made up and isn't actually happening.
After teasing the announcement in an Instagram post (above), Paul did a Periscope livestream. With 3,000 fans tuned in, Paul said, "Listen, there's some super top secret news that I'm so proud to tell you."
This video (ripped from the livestream) is hard to watch because it freezes constantly, but in it Paul says that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan just gave him the go-ahead to announce the new show. Then he says he was joking and there is no show. Then he answers a ton of fan questions, invites people to see a movie with him, lays his head down on a pillow, and encourages strangers to keep yelling "bitch" at him in the style of his Breaking Bad character.
I get that everyday, all day long, and I want it. Don't stop. Give it to me.
So, what is going on here? Does Paul miss his friends from Breaking Bad? Is he jealous of Bob Odenkirk for getting a Breaking Bad spinoff when he didn't? Is life after Breaking Bad harder than he expected? Or is he just really, really bored? It could be all of these things. It could be none. We may never know.
The only thing that's certain is that Aaron Paul is not getting a Breaking Bad spinoff.
