‘Best’ Intentions: Watch Videodrome Discotheque’s salute to ‘Breaking Bad’
With each passing day, we’re further removed from the conclusion of Breaking Bad. But the tributes to the landmark AMC series are still rolling in, and now Videodrome Discotheque has a personal message for Mr. Walter White: “You’re the best around, nothing’s ever gonna keep you down.”
This week, Videodrome DJ/VJ Craig MacNeil edited together this tribute video to White and crew — spoiler alert: this might reveal some plot lines — recapping the series to the tune of Joe Esposito’s ’80s classic “You’re The Best,” best known for its inclusion on the Karate Kid soundtrack. Never has “Get him a body bag, yeah!” felt more appropriate, and MacNeil said the association was easy.
“I’ve never been as obsessed with a series as I have been with Breaking Bad, and I’ve always rooted for Walt, no matter how dark the plot twists got,” MacNeil tells Vanyaland. “The day before the finale I just thought of this song in conjunction with with show and started giggling, which made me have to cut this together. I wanted to include shots of Saul Goodman, Huell, and other fan favorites, but it really turned into a twisted salute to Walter White and his superior abilities.”
No word on whether these scenes will creep their way into MacNeil’s Videodrome mixes. The audio/visual dance party’s next installment arrives October 25 at Oberon in Harvard Square, and stars a drag performance by the darling (and uber flexible) Katya Zamolodchikova and showcases the career of Duran Duran.
