Breaking Bad

"Breaking Bad" returned to public consciousness this week (as if it ever left) when its stars, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, were featured in a pre-Emmys skit with Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The two play the skeevy owners of a pawn shop, featured on a reality show, that happened to get a visit from Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who portrayed an exaggerated version of herself. It was a cute skit meant to promote the Emmys, which take place on Monday. On top of that, Aaron Paul also announced a scavenger hunt for "Breaking Bad" fans to honor the show's last time being eligible for an Emmy. The scavenger hunt includes a chance to find things like scripts, posters, dolls, and art from the show. (Please Note: Video has mild cussing.)

10 Best Celebrity Ice Bucket Challenge Videos

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge seems to have taken on a life of its own within the celebrity world. Every day, new videos surface of celebs and public figures drenching themselves in ice-cold water, while simaltenously calling out other celebs and public figures to do the same. It's fun AND it's for a good cause (as I like to assume every single one of these people has also opted to donate a large sum of money to ALS).

Here are 10 of the best challenge videos that have surfaced over the last few days, starting with...

#1 - Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt, in general, is seeking world domination right now. For "Parks and Rec" fans, this is a longtime coming. There's really no one better to kick off this list.

What's in Matthew McConaughey's Fanny Pack?

Matthew McConaughey is single-handedly trying to bring back the fanny pack. And, I guess, if ever there were a person to try, Matthew McConaughey is the man for the job.

It started when he was spotted at Fenway Park wearing a fanny pack. Was this fashion choice ironic? Was it legit? The only way to find out was to ask. McConaughey revealed that he's totally serious about his fanny packs, guys.

In the interview, he said: "I'm not afraid of the fanny pack. Instead of stuffing your pockets... you kind of got to put it on the side to make it look a little not-as-nerdy, but still, practicality wins out. I've got so much gear in here that I don't want in my pockets, I'm not afraid of the fanny pack."

TicketNetwork.com has definitely been a proponent of fanny packs (we even hosted a "Bring Back the Pack" contest back in the day). Thankfully, McConaughey is doing the legwork for us.

But what's inside of that fanny pack? Here are some of my theories...

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

If you've been on Facebook recently, there's no doubt in my mind that you've seen at least one video of a friend, acquaintance, or otherwise, dousing his or herself with a bucket of ice water, before promptly calling out some of their friends to do the same. It's all in an attempt to raise awareness and donations for ALS, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gerig's Disease. The premise: those are tagged are asked to donate a sum of money (typically, $100) to ALS or film themselves pouring a bucket of ice-cold water on themselves. In most cases, people have opted to do both. Even celebrities and public figures have gotten in the challenge, including Justin Timberlake (video above), Mark Zuckerberg, the cast of "Grey's Anatomy," and Conan O'Brien. According to the ALS website, these donations have helped raise more than $3 million in additional donations for this time period, which is pretty awesome.
