I need help.[ref]More likely, I’ll need help in two weeks after Breaking Bad has run its course. I’m pretty sure the show has ruined me for any other TV series ever.[/ref] I have an idea for a book trailer for my book, but I need you to help me make it a reality. I want you to be in my book trailer. Here’s how:

Through Oct. 31, 2013, I’m asking for you to film yourself or someone else reciting one or all of these five infamous lines said by Breaking Bad‘s Walter White:

  1. “My name is Walter Hartwell White.”
  2. “Say my name!”
  3. “I am the danger!”
  4. “I am the one who knocks!”
  5. “If you don’t know who I am, then maybe your best course would be to tread lightly.”

If you want to see how terrible an actor you can be and still be part of my book trailer, look no further than my examples in the video below. You don’t even need to know the show to take part!

Take five minutes out of your day and give me your best Walter White impersonation.  Film yourself saying any or all of the lines and upload it to YouTube, Instagram, Vine, or wherever, then send the URL to me at breakingbad@blakeatwood.com. Five entrants will then be chosen to win both a digital and physical copy of my book. All submissions will be considered for inclusion in my book trailer, to be released (I hope) in late November 2013 to coincide with the print book release.

If you don’t want to take part, consider sharing this post on your social networks.

I also recommend watching the video to its conclusion in order to discover who the real danger is.
