Steve Aoki has dropped the music video for his collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly, "Free the Madness". Hitting YouTube on Tuesday, June 24, the visuals directed by Dan Packer finds the EDM star and his rapper collaborator emulating AMC's hit series "Breaking Bad".
Aoki and MGK channel meth-making duo Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman, respectively. Clad in yellow jumpsuits, the duo perform on top of an RV parked in the middle of the New Mexico desert. Later in the clip, they get into a battle with Girls Scouts troops after it's revealed that they cook up cookies, instead of narcotics, and sell them to a lady.
"I've been obsessively watching 'Breaking Bad' since season one, and Aaron Paul is a good friend of mine as well," Aoki has said of the inspiration behind "Free the Madness". "He actually sported my Aoki logo shirt in season four, which was a huge honor. So this is my homage to the best television show on earth. Long live Heisenberg and Jesse Pinkman!"
