In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!

Breaking Bad, AMC’s look into the lives of meth-cookers, pizza-tossers, and breakfast enthusiasts, returns for the first half of its final season this Sunday. So what better way to celebrate than with a pair of video clips starring its dynamic duo, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul?

Earlier today, Gawker’s Rich Juzwiak created a supercut in which Walter White’s punk-kid protege Jesse Pinkman says “yo” over and over again.

Anyone who watches Breaking Bad knows Jesse uses “yo” like the rest of the world uses commas and periods. Part of the brilliance of Aaron Paul’s performance is how the actor is able to convey the complex, tormented psyche of a character who, while very intelligent, never felt the need to acquire an extensive vocabulary. For example, here’s another supercut of Pinkman saying his second favorite word, “bitch.”

On a much different note, check out this other video uploaded today of Bryan Cranston and his wife and daughter delivering a Public Service Announcement in support of equal marriage rights. It’s a nice reminder that Cranston isn’t actually a terrifying dead-eyed genius who will destroy anyone and anything that gets in the way of his criminal enterprise.

Or is he? Either way, politicians who oppose same-sex marriage should maybe brace themselves for a knock on the door from Walter White.
