Be like Mike. Breaking Bad's Mike Ehrmentraut, that is.

First of all, here’s an official SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t yet watched this past Sunday’s Breaking Bad, please leave the premises immediately. And now that there’s no one left but the cool kids, it’s okay to admit if you shed a tear or two when Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), Gus Fring’s former right-hand man, was abruptly given his walking papers by Walter White in the final minutes of the episode. Although the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad will be a far poorer place without Mr. Banks in them (unless we’re lucky enough to get a flashback, in which case their awesomeness yield will instantly be upped to 99.6%…and, yes, we did triple-check those figures), we can at least take comfort in this outstanding final farewell to the best damned cleaner in New Mexico, which shows both his soft side as well as his total and utter badassery. This video, which swipes the old Gatorade commercial theme, offers fitting tribute to a fallen great.
