Do you have a secret crush that you’d like to ask out on a date but are too scared he or she may say no?
Well then, maybe you need some help from a famous actor to give you a setup. That’s what high school student Stefan Montana did.
He cornered Bryan Cranston after a performance of All The Way on Broadway, where the actor is portraying Lyndon B. Johnson, Uproxx .com reports.
Montana asks the Breaking Bad star to record a brief message on his phone that’s a variation of one Walter White’s quotes from the final season.
Cranston reads into the phone: “Maddie, if you don’t go to the prom with Stefan, then maybe your best course of action would be to tread lightly.”
Then Montana takes the phone and asks: “Maddie, would you go to the prom with me?”
The gimmick seems cute at first, but it’s actually a little disturbing. The line Cranston references – SPOILER ALERT – is actually a threat Walter White utters to his brother-in-law Hank Schrader when he realizes that Hank has discerned that he is Heisenberg.
But the gimmick apparently worked for Montana as he later tweeted to Cranston:

So maybe this Maddie girl really wanted to go to the prom with Montana. Or perhaps she was just afraid Cranston would slip ricin into her tea…
