The decidedly mature Breaking Bad franchise and the for-kids Lego series have come together, albeit in a parody fashion.

Animator Brian Anderson has created a Lego: Breaking Bad parody that envisions a new Lego game based on AMC's hit TV show about a high school teacher who cooks and sells meth.

In the four-and-a-half-minute video (below), series protagonists Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are recreated in block form, with their escapades playing out with the humor associated with the Lego series of games.

"I have no affiliation with Traveller's Tales, Lego, or AMC. I'm just a huge fan of the stuff they make," Anderson explained. "But seriously, if they all got together and made this game, for real, I'd buy it and play the crap out of it."

Anderson explained that he chose not to actually show White and Pinkman cooking meth in their trailer over a fear of the video getting pulled down.

"I considered having little text pop-ups that would say 'Press A to add Methylamine, Press B to add Phenylacetone, etc.' but I was afraid that listing actual meth-making ingredients could get the video yanked," he said.

Lego: Marvel Super Heroes is the next entry in the series, due to launch this fall. It is the latest in Traveller's Tales' lucrative licensed series, following last year's Lego: Lord of the Rings.

The video below contains Breaking Bad spoilers.
