Walter White's Glorious Underwear From Breaking Bad Sold For $32,500 At Auction
Breaking Bad fans, this is what you've been waiting for.
Walter White's iconic underwear from Breaking Bad recently went up for auction, and after 29 bids, someone is taking the tighty-whities home for $32,500. As it turns out, the buyer appears to be the company SAXX Underwear.
First and foremost, this is not the exact underwear worn by actor Bryan Cranston. This is a "decoration" pair of the tighty-whities. That's probably for the best, because, uhh, yeah.
"We simply could not let another man subject his nether regions to these," SAXX Underwear said in its tweet announcing that it was the winner of the auction.
Again, Bryan Cranston did not wear this pair of underwear during the filming of Breaking Bad, as the auction store page clearly confirms. This was a decoration pair never worn by Cranston.
The underwear is made of cotton and polyester, and has a waist measurement of 40 inches. The underwear includes the trademark white elastic waistband with blue and goldenrod accents. The listing on the Propstore Auction website (via NME) states that the elasticity from the waistband is "largely lost" due to the passing of time.
Cranston wore matching sets of this underwear throughout the series. The asking price to kick things off was $1,250, but the auction site believes the pair will end up selling for as much as $5,000. As it turned out, that estimate was massively low, considering the pair sold for more than $32,000.
Fans got their first look at the undies in all their glory on the very first episode of Breaking Bad back in 2008. It was a very memorable scene that fans will surely remember, as Walter--believing he is caught--is prepared to end his life in the very first episode, only to find his pistol is not loaded. That was a relief, because as it turned out, the police were not actually after him and his co-conspirator Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).
Breaking Bad ended in 2013, and it was followed by a prequel series, Better Call Saul, and a movie, El Camino. Cranston and Paul reprised their characters in Better Call Saul and most recently in a Super Bowl commercial for PopCorners.
