Bob Odenkirk

The Black Keys, who are incredibly fucking popular right now, are gearing up to release a new album called El Camino on 12/6. This, in and of itself, is good news. But they get extra style points for the way that they’ve announced it. Bob Odenkirk, who has been extremely funny as the skeezy lawyer Saul Goodman on the last couple of seasons of Breaking Bad, makes the announcement while wearing his Saul Goodman suit and hair, playing a used-car salesman in a series of commercial outtakes. Watch it below, and then hold your breath for Breaking Bad to come back after last night’s absolutely incredible season finale.

The Black Keys have this site set up to help build noise for their album, so maybe we can hope for more Odenkirk.

  1. Funny little advert. But last night’s season finale of Breaking Bad? Jesus! I wished I could’ve seen my own facial expressions while watching it. Incredible! Looking forward to the Black Keys album, by the way.

  2. Well it feels like their last release wasn’t too long ago, but I don’t really mind. One of those few rare bands that manage to get more popular without compromising their sound.

  3. That may be Breaking Bad Bob Odenkirk in style.

    But that is nothing other than Mr. Show Bob Odenkirk in execution.

  4. Can’t go wrong with The Black Keys. At this point, I kind of wonder what they’re going to do with their sound, but whatever they do, it’ll be awesometown.

  5. I actually called and left a message, hoping that they’ll send me free stuff. (not likely though)

  6. Nice Winnebago Man reference. Well played, Black Keys, well played. Psyched for the album.
