When it comes to mic-drop-worthy replies, you can count on Bryan Cranston to deliver some good ones. He did “drop” Mike in Breaking Bad . Okay, that was a bad pun. But still, maybe not as bad as the guy in this video who fired a meh- ish question to Cranston, only so that he could hear a celebrity praise his hometown. Well, not today, random person in the crowd. Cranston went for the good old American “when you don’t have a genuine answer, bring in a mom-joke” trope.

And guess what? It worked.
