Aaron Paul shares details of his 'Breaking Bad' scavenger hunt
The 2014 Emmys were a day of celebration for many actors, showrunners, writers, and other TV folk. But for Breaking Bad‘s crew, it was the final stop on their journey—which came long after they’d originally said goodbye to their show. So to celebrate the series one final time, Aaron Paul decided to throw one of his infamous scavenger hunts in L.A. place just hours before the awards show. He told fans via social media where they could find Breaking Bad memorabilia—and in at least one case, a Breaking Bad actor holding said memorabilia.
On Thursday, Paul went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the hunt. It all started when the actor walked into what’s probably the world’s coolest closet—full of scripts, Jesse Pinkman’s license plate (THE CAPN!), a Lily of the Valley plant (poor Brock!), and more—then scattered the goods around L.A. On the day of the hunt, he sent thousands of fans to a local IHOP, shamed a few cheaters, then forced a guy with asthma to chase him through a park. We’d like to think Jesse’s doing the same right now. Well, exactly the same—but at least running free.
