I’m a little bit irritated that I didn’t hear about this sooner and can’t find a video of this online.
Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger take part in a “Breaking Bad” parody with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul at the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting.
Berkshire takes a huge step into cultural relevancy with a skit based on “Breaking Bad,” with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul reprising their roles as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. Instead of cooking up meth, however, the drug-dealing duo opts to focus on peanut brittle.
“What we sacrifice in profit margins,” White says in his inimitable growl, “we make up for in decreased risk.”
That is, until a hatted Mr. Buffett shows up, proclaiming himself the competition. White first sniffs, “Are you Father Time?” before acknowledging that his new adversary is the Oracle of Omaha who can see into the future.
“Like a wizard?” Pinkman asks earnestly.
Mr. Buffett offers to buy the two out, leading to an intense stare-off with tropes familiar to “Breaking Bad” fans. (A declaration of names is involved.) But White and Pinkman back down and agree to sell, prompting Mr. Buffett to call Mr. Munger to notify him that a deal is done.
Sitting back in his chair, Mr. Munger haughtily proclaims, “Brittle, bitches.”
