As promised, AMC used the waning hours of its Breaking Bad marathon to debut a Better Call Saul music video. And while many expected to see Saul Goodman marrying girlfriend Stephanie Seymour while Jesse Pinkman rips an amazing guitar solo in the desert, as Breaking Bad taught us, expectations often go awry and that was “November Rain.” Instead we got country music’s Junior Brown, with lyrical help from Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, wrangling a little ditty about the myriad misdeeds committed by Saul’s clients—DUI, vandalism, insurance fraud, child abduction, shoplifting a George Foreman grill—and why they’d better call him. Fair warning: Even more so than the Heisenberg ballad “Negro y Azul,” Brown’s song has a chorus that’s meth levels of addictive.
