Bryan Cranston’s Breaking Bad underwear just sold for “crazy” money

Breaking Bad was such a good TV series people are willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars to buy costumes from the series, even if it's underwear.

Bryan Cranston as Walter White in Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad may have been off the air for a few years now, but the accomplished drama series about a chemistry teacher who deals meth to pay for cancer treatment is still on the minds of many.

Being in one of the best TV series has its merits. Lead actor Bryan Cranston has had his pick of roles since wrapping — not a phone-it-in lucrative gig in sight.

It also comes with some drawbacks, however, like people paying tens of thousands of dollars to buy your character’s undies.

Reacting to the news that Walter White’s underwear from Breaking Bad sold at auction for a staggering $32,000, Cranston told The Tonight Show: “Those were never worn.”

“The ones that are soiled go for much higher… I wish I didn’t say that… I mean, people are crazy! Who, in their right mind, is buying a pair of tighty-whitey underwear for 30 grand?” he continued.

Cranston is joking about the soiled ones, of course, but we hesitate to think about the likelihood of them actually being sold if he wasn’t.
