Too Far: Aaron Paul Punks 'Breaking Bad' Fans By Announcing Spinoff
Aaron Paul likes to have fun with his fans, but this past weekend, he went a little too far.
Paul posted this photo to Instagram, which teased a top-secret project he worked on.
He then took to Periscope to elaborate on the news.
In the live stream, Paul spoke about a "Breaking Bad" spinoff that he was involved in with Vince Gilligan.
A YouTube rip of that stream is shown below.
Naturally, people on the Twitter were excited.
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I WENT ON THE AARON PAUL PERISCOPE AND HE JUST SAID THERES GOING TO BE A SPIN OFF FOR JESSE PINKMAN AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH — F yz H q (@faayza) June 15, 2015
AARON PAUL JUST ANNOUNCED THAT THERE WILL BE A SPINOFF FOR JESSE PINKMAN!!!!!!! — Margie (@theforger_) June 15, 2015
However, it turned out this was all a prank pulled by Paul.
There is no Jesse Pinkman centric "Breaking Bad" spinoff.
Chances are, "Better Call Saul" is as close as we'll ever get. Paul was just bored and having a good time.
But, of course, Paul's fans were disheartened by the news. So, Paul eventually apologized.
Sorry for the joke everybody. I love you all so much. Hugs and kisses. — Aaron Paul (@aaronpaul_8) June 15, 2015
He felt so bad that he offered to pay for his fans to see "Mad Max" with him in Boston, where he is currently shooting a movie.
Mad Max??? Come watch it with me and all of my Boston friends at Regal cinemas near Fenway. 10:40 showing!! Hope you can make it boston. — Aaron Paul (@aaronpaul_8) June 15, 2015
So, Pinkman burned us all here, but at least he made amends, bitch.
