In any other situation this would be an extremely threatening video.
But it's just Bryan Cranston quoting lines from "Breaking Bad" to get a girl to go to prom with a very clever boy.
High schooler Stefan Montana ran into Cranston on the street and asked him to record a video asking a girl named Maddy to go to prom with him.
Cranston quickly got into character, saying "Maddy, if you don't go to the prom with Stefan, then maybe your best course of action would be to tread lightly." A line famously said by the character Walter White in the last season of "Breaking Bad."
And, apparently it worked!

Here is the video that Stefan sent to Maddy:
And, here is the video someone else recorded of Stefan asking Cranston to record the message:
This was a pretty epic proposal. As someone pointed out on Twitter, Stefan is going to have a hard time topping this one next year. Maybe he'll find Aaron Paul on the streets, but we're not sure Maddy will appreciate Paul's catchphrase as much.
Feel bad that @stefonmontana has to top his junior prom asking next year for senior prom...
