Britney Spears meets Aaron Paul in a perfectly titled mashup

It's Breaking Brit, bitch.

Britney Spears’s new single, “Work, Bitch,” was released last month; the video followed last week. It’s a minimalist dance track: Spears lists all the things a person might want (a hot body, a Maserati), and how to get them (“You better work, bitch”). It’s an ode to the American Dream, or maybe Marxism, disguised as a club anthem. (Ronan Farrow might have the best tweet about it yet.)

On Twitter yesterday, Spears and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul had an exchange about the video, which, naturally, led to a mashup, courtesy of What’s Trending.

The parallels are sort of perfect, actually: The video takes place in the desert, and Spears’s refrain of “bitch” is subbed out for Paul’s many iterations. “It’s Britney, bitch” even finds a mirror in Walter White.

Even more synchronicity: Aaron Paul is actually featured on a track called “Dance Bitch.”

Jesse Pinkman was never supposed to make it this far. Series creator Vince Gilligan originally intended to kill the off the beloved Breaking Bad character in a botched drug deal at the end of the AMC drama’s first season. But Pinkman quickly became indispensable, both as Walter White’s cracked sideman and as an audience favorite: He’s a captivating and complex character—damaged, flawed, showing every mistake in his facial expressions.
