This is clearly a sad, challenging day for many because of the tragic shootings during the “Dark Knight Rises” screening in Colorado. Colleagues are covering that situation in detail, as you can read here.
I’m figuring that some people could use a smile at the end of a day like this one. Which is why I am sharing this video showing a young Aaron Paul — Jesse Pinkman of “Breaking Bad” — during a 14-year-old episode of “The Price is Right.”
It’s been making the rounds on the Internet today after Jay Leno — in what may officially be the smartest thing Jay Leno has ever done — showed clips from the classic game show episode during last night’s “Tonight Show.”
At no point does the Emmy-nominated Paul use the word, “yo.” But he does execute an amazing shimmy down the aisle, in what I am now officially calling the “Pinkman Come on Down Dance”; screamingly insists that Bob Barker is “the man”; and looks as if his entire world has crumbled when he overbids by just $132 in the showcase showdown.
“I look like I am on meth,” he says. He is not exaggerating. And it is delightful.
