Middle school kids make their own "Breaking Bad"

(CBS News) The final season of AMC's hit show "Breaking Bad" is upon us, and with it comes a lot of attention, sadness and, luckily, spoofs! In the latest, kid-friendly take, New York City-based filmmaker Patrick Willems of Lumberjack Films and Mike F have created "Breaking Bad Jr.," a fantastic and amazingly-accurate (minus the bad stuff,. of course) video where "Breaking Bad' is reenacted by a group of middle school kids. Check out WIllem's take above. 

In this version of the story, however, the blue crystal meth is blue bubble gum and Walter doesn't knock, but rings the doorbell. "I am the one who rings the doorbell... and runs away," says Walt Jr. (perfectly played here by middle schooler Ian Hollowood, who came up with the idea for this reenactment).

And the rest of the casting is impeccable as well, down to a young-Saul (Bob Odenkirk) and a mini-me Gus (Giancarlo Esposito). It's all so well done, and there are no drugs, no swearing, no violence, no sex! Promise, ma. But even without all that, this clip is sure to be the highlight of your day.
