Get Saved by the Bad with “Breaking Belding”
By Kyle Anderson on August 9, 2013
(UPDATE: Thanks for your patience- the videos have arrived!) It seems like such a good idea, it’s surprising no one’s done it yet. Arguably the best show currently on television, AMC’s Breaking Bad has left an indelible mark on pop culture with it’s very dark, very compelling storytelling. Many have called it the Saved by the Bell of today. By “many” I mean some people, and by “some people” I mean me for the purposes of this. At any rate, both shows have a plethora of references that have permeated the cultural lexicon and become t-shirt fodder for a generations.
Now, for Fan Friday as part of YouTube’s Geek Week, you can see what it would be like if the characters from Bayside made their way to Albuquerque for Breaking Belding. A terminally balding Mr. Belding and Zack Morris have taken to RV caffeine pill cooking in order to pay for treatment, but lots of violent people want to get in their way. What are they to do when they get in trouble? Better reach Screech! Dustin Diamond guest stars in this incredibly effective parody of two things.
