Los Pollos Hermanos Ad Will Make You Wish It Were Real (Video)

“What does family taste like?”
At first glance, it looks like a family-friendly fast food restaurant that serves high-quality fried chicken with fresh ingredients. Ok, another one of those generic restaurant commercials talking about how high their standards are, and how your family should only eat the best fried chicken (video below). We’ll just tune it out …
But then Gus Fring comes out, and you realize that this isn’t just any New Mexico-based fried chicken chain. It’s Los Pollos Hermanos, and its yellow button up-clad, secret meth kingpin is back and looking a little different than the last time we saw him …
At this point, of course, you’ll realize that the video you’re watching is actually a promo for season three of “Better Call Saul,” the critically acclaimed “Breaking Bad” spinoff that does a pretty good job filling the giant hole in your heart that Walter White and his ilk left when the original show ended.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know when the next season will come out to end your withdrawal. But we can tell you that GUS IS BACK, and he’s here to tell you all about the “Los Pollos Hermanos promise,” which, according to the video, means that you’ll get “the freshest ingredients, the spiciest spices, all prepared with love and care, and always delivered with a friendly smile.”
“Come out and try our new curly fries,” Gus Fring says to the camera, with a smile that we’d almost trust if we didn’t know better. “And if you don’t, they’re on me.”
Still can’t get enough “Breaking Bad”? Did the promo actually sell the chicken a little too well? Keep your fingers crossed, and you might actually be able to dine at a Los Pollos Hermanos one of these days, as show creator Vince Gilligan teased during a 2015 Reddit AMA.
“Believe it or not … there is talk of a Pollos Hermanos becoming a real restaurant,” Gilligan wrote. “This is not an idea that I generated personally. But it’s one that’s been presented to me, through the good folks at Sony, and the idea came to them from a businessman who has an interest in doing just that.
“Speaking for myself, I’d love to see that happen!”
So would we, Vince. So would we.Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, fake commercial promo, fried chicken news, Los Pollos Hermanos
