Walt's wisdom

Walt's Wisdom was a 2008 project made as promotional content for Season 1 of Breaking Bad. It received a "sequel" of sorts a year later with Walt's Warning.

It's a simple two and a half minute video, where the viewer video calls Walter White during an inconvenient time. The viewer's name, state, and friend are all inputtable for the sake of personalization.

Summary[]

The video opens with Walt, in the climax of the Pilot, desperately stuffing a bag of money as emergency services move in on the RV when the viewer, through video chat, calls him. Walt will then frantically offer them life advice;

"Ah, geez, *the viewer's name*! You have really bad timing, you know that?! Look, you don't know me, but my name is Walter White and you might be the last person I ever speak to! You see, someone you know sent me this," he holds up an email of the viewer's friend complaining about how unapplied they are."They tell me you're a time-waster, that you're not living life to its fullest out there in uh, in *the viewer's state*. That you waste too much time sitting by this computer. Well I let life pass me by too, fifty years before I could truly say 'I am awake!' Look, you're *the viewer's age*, you still have time to change! So whatever you can do, or want to do, or dream that you can do, start doing it right away because there is nothing more dangerous in life than not living. And don't be like me, be yourself. Good luck."

Walt then crosses off the viewer's name from a list of "time-wasters".
