Boldly go where no stoner has gone before with TshirtGrill’s Breaking Bad-inspired ‘Star Trip’ T-shirt. The design is based on the episode “Blood Money”, in which Jesse Pinkman’s drug slinging cohort Badger regales his partner in crime, Skinny Pete, with the tale of a tulaberry pie eating contest aboard the Enterprise gone horribly, horribly wrong.
The skit was immortalised by Vulture’s Matt Czap, who, after seeing the episode, worked through the night animating Badger’s tale of geek tradegy before uploading it to the internet.
Legend has it, Badger’s Star Trek pitch was dreamed up in the early stages of Series 5, when screenwriter Peter Gould and fellow Breaking Bad scribe Gennifer Hutchinson got into an argument over the Trek transporter’s true operational nature. Their argument made it into the show almost word for word, and in the process became one of the most iconic and memorable moments of the entire series.
“It would be the ultimate diet, really. Eat anything you want, and then Scotty beams it out of your stomach,” Gould said. “But like with great technology, there are terrible things that can go wrong.”
Andy: Thanks for the submission.
