There are many television show reunions happening during the pandemic. Cranston reunited with his Breaking Bad co-star Aaron Paul virtually. This was to promote their joint business called Dos Hombres, which is a type of Mezcal.

The Instagram account for the business made a post explaining how they came up with the idea. Cranston and Paul came up with it while they were at a sushi bar in New York.

We searched high and low all over Oaxaca, met incredible people along the way and after a beautiful yet grueling search throughout that majestic landscape we believed we may have found our place. Our Mezcal. It was on a dirt-road, in tiny village, hours away from the center of town, we found it and it was perfect. Holy sh*t it was perfect. We looked at each other and just simply nodded. This is it. We named it Dos Hombres – two guys on a quest.

The Breaking Bad star has been keeping busy promoting their Mezcal. He posted a video on Instagram of himself going grocery shopping, which he said he does once a month.

The first thing he picks up is a bottle of Dos Hombres. He went on to say he wanted to get just the staples that he needs for a month and doesn’t want to hoard anything. The video ends with him at home showing off his items, which includes peanut butter, toilet paper, and more bottles of Dos Hombres.

His grocery list is pretty funny. Cranston did post another video later to be more serious about the pandemic.

The video also has a caption part of it reads, “About now you’re probably feeling a little tied down, restricting your mobility and like me, you’re tired of this!!

I was pretty strict in adhering to the protocols and still… I contracted the virus.” It looks like the actor his hoping his story will encourage his fans to be safe.
