Bryan Cranston Reenacts The Shining in Super Bowl Commercial

We know Breaking Bad‘s Walter White is the one who knocks, but apparently, Bryan Cranston does too — with an axe!

Although’s Sunday’s Super Bowl game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers had plenty of excitement, it was a Mountain Dew commercial that provided us  with the biggest jolt. That’s because it featured Cranston  recreating Jack Nicholson’s unhinged performance in The Shining, chopping down the bathroom door to tell his terrified wife (Tracee Ellis Ross taking over for Shelly Duvall), “Here’s Mountain Dew Zero Sugar!”

We haven’t seen Bryan Cranston this frightening since he watched on as Jesse’s girlfriend choked to death and did nothing to save her. Whether recreating the famous bathroom scene or pulling double duty to play those chilling twins, Cranston’s attention to detail for the original almost makes you feel like you’re watching it.

Watch the full Mountain Dew commercial below:
