Bryan Cranston is definitely not your average EDM fan. In fact, you weren’t really at the 2015 Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas if you didn’t witness him pushing the button for Above & Beyond.
Cranston surprised fans at the carnival on Saturday (20th June) by kicking off the British DJ/producer trio’s set that introduces the song named after his infamous “Breaking Bad” character, Walter White.
In a video posted on Above and Beyond’s official YouTube channel, the crowd can be seen cheering for Cranston as he made a surprise appearance onstage. “Say my name,” the actor said to the audience, referring to the iconic catchphrase by his “Breaking Bad” character’s alter ego, Heisenberg. The crowd erupted in cheers and Cranston responded by yelling, “You’re goddamn right!”
“Walter White! Above & Beyond!” he shouted and dropped the beats by pushing the button that kickstarted Above & Beyond’s set. He can also be seen jumping and dancing to the track alongside the Above & Beyond members.
Before leaving the carnival, Cranston shot some video of the EDC crowd and shared it on Twitter.
He said, “Leaving EDC – Vegas right now. Pulled an all nighter. Old, my ass… Old, my head. Old, my feet… Happy Fathers Day“:

According to Rolling Stone, “Walter White” is a track inspired by their all-time favourite TV show, “Breaking Bad”. They recorded the track back in 2013.
Take a listen to the original mix below:
Walter White is presumed dead in “Breaking Bad”, but Cranston and the show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, teased that White might be resurrected in the future, especially since he did not close his eyes in the series finale. No official announcement regarding the series has been made, but at least we know Cranston likes to listen to EDM when he’s not cooking drugs.
