Aaron Paul achieved TV immortality with Breaking Bad, but like any actor, he had to struggle his way through small-time gigs for years before his breakout role. Luckily for Paul, one of said early roles managed to pay his bills “for almost two years,” he revealed on Tuesday’s Conan.

In a Juicy Fruit commercial unearthed by the titular host, Paul’s pants fly off when someone tries to telekinetically grab his Juicy Fruit gum. It’s a bizarre advertisement, but because there’s no dialogue, it was easy to sell in other countries — thus Paul’s extended pay day.

“When they stopped playing that commerical, it was such a loud reality check: ‘Oh my God, I need to get a job,'” Paul recalled.
