Is there such a thing as too much "Breaking Bad"? Nope! Sure, the addictive AMC hit show has been over for nearly a month, but fans are still fiending for the meth-fueled drama. One way to cool off devotees (at least temporarily): Put the action on ice. That's exactly what "Breaking Bad" assistant editor Sharidan Williams-Sotelo did, shooting a pretty dramatic Ice Capades-inspired homage appropriately titled "Breaking Ice."
The nearly dialogue-free tribute doesn't put the show's actual stars on skates, but it does include some tighty whities (brr) and iconic ice-skater Richard Dwyer as Saul Goodman. The video, which runs just over six minutes with credits, is broken up into segments, such as "Elegy for Jane" (complete with her memorable outgoing message), "Whitman's Men," and "Ionic Bonds." We also get a dose of Jesse Pinkman's (Aaron Paul) cringeworthy band, TwaughtHammer, and their song — if you can call it that — "Fallacies."
If you're hesitant to watch the icy performance because you haven't watched the final season, fear not. You can watch "Breaking Ice." It was filmed in early 2012, before series creator Vince Gilligan had finalized the drama's conclusion.

Williams-Sotelo got some extra notoriety for cutting the unforgettable final "Breaking Bad" promo, in which Walter White (Bryan Cranston) reads "Ozymandias," a poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley, while grim shots of New Mexico are spliced together.
