'The Name Is Fallsenberg': 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' Premieres 'Breaking Bad' Spoof 'Joking Bad'

After teasing us last month, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon premiered Joking Bad, its spoof of Breaking Bad, on Thursday night. And it was awesome. Ninety-nine percent pure awesome. Like Game of Desks, the previous massive Late Night Digital Original, Joking Bad demonstrates that Jimmy Fallon and the writers for Late Night adore pop culture to the point where they can dissect it and piece it back together as something totally new and funny. Game of Desks was brilliant — Joking Bad is possibly the greatest spoof Late Night has done.

While Fallon is seen as a late-night host and comedian, his acting skills have picked up when it comes to executing these sketches. Fallon mimics many of Walter White's mannerisms, right down to his hunched stance while talking on his phone. (A burner phone too. Nice attention to detail.)

Joking Bad brings in the entire Late Night crew, with Fallon subbing in for Walt, Steve Higgins for Jesse, head writer AD Miles for Hank, writer Dion Flynn for Gus Fring and The Roots manning the RV. Colin Quinn plays himself, and Bob Odenkirk plays Saul Goodman. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul even stop by as audience members, with Cranston repeating an iconic Breaking Bad moment. Jay Leno continues to play along with Fallon's Digital Originals too.

Head past the jump to check out the first installment of Joking Bad.
