Google has just confirmed what we already know to be true. There are going to be sooo many Breaking Bad-themed costumes this Halloween.
Google shopping has just released their list of top trending costume searches, and “Breaking Bad costume” takes the number two spot. What’s number one you ask? “Minion costume,” as in the minions from Despicable Me. You’re going to see a lot of those too.
The rest of the top 10 looks like a rundown of the past year’s pop culture trends – “Fox costume” (undoubtedly based on Ylvis’s “What Does the Fox Say” viral smash); “Duck Dynasty costume”; “Miley Cyrus costume”; “Daenerys costume”; and “Daft Punk costume.”
Google says that searches for “Breaking Bad costume” are 3 times as high as they were last year, which makes sense. Duck Dynasty searches are also up nearly 300% – and are the highest in Texas. Google says that search volume for “Daft Punk costume” is the highest it’s ever been.
I say go ahead – Break Bad this Halloween. There are so many options. You can be Heisenberg, or you can be cancer-stricken grizzled Walter White. You can be tortured-by-crazy-Neo-Nazi-Jesse, but you’ll need a good makeup artist. You can be Todd if you’d like – just act as creepy as possible and perfect that dead behind the eyes look. Piece of cake. Or be Gomie. Yeah, be Gomie – that’s a bold choice.
But whatever you do, just know that you’ll never be as cool as Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as Hector Salamanca and a Los Pollos Hermanos chicken cool.
And if you’re dressing up your kids, well, I’ll just leave this here…
