Here's how Breaking Bad took over the internet

From Reddit to YouTube parodies.

BREAKING BAD IS back, but then you already knew that, because it is everywhere.

Never before has a television show taken over the internet in such a way.

From parody videos to Tumblrs to mashups, the show is everywhere on the world wide web, and here’s the proof.

Save Walter White

The website which Walt Jr. sets up to raise money for his father exists in real life.

AMC, the company behind Breaking Bad, set the site up to coincide with the episode.

Fans could donate real life money to The National Cancer Coalition, and as of last October $125,000 had been raised.

We can't help but think Walt Jr could have managed a slightly more attractive site, though. It's a bit 2001, isn't it?

The mash-ups

Countless people have taken to the internet to share the connections they've made between Breaking Bad and other television programmes.

Like Bosco, for example.


Or Parks and Recreation

Parks and Meth

Or The Simpsons

The Tattoos

What other way is there for superfans to share their Breaking Bad ink than the world wide web?

There are hundreds of them online, from the sublime to the ridiculous.




Breaking Bad on Facebook

What would the plot of Breaking Bad look like if it took place on Facebook?

This, apparently, as some people took the time to work it all out.


Breaking Bad comics

The web is also host to countless Breaking Bad comics, most of which include the line 'stay out of my territory'.

Even the cats of the internet are onboard with Walt and Jesse


And, perhaps most tellingly, Breaking Bad has taken over Reddit

Many would consider Reddit to be the powerful overlord of the internet, so the fact that it has Breaking-Badded itself to celebrate the return of the series is a strong indicator of the show's web power.
