Two of the best dramas ever, mashed up into one incredibly miserable show about drug dealers.

James Montalbano created this elaborate tribute to The Wire and Breaking Bad by taking footage from the latter and re-editing it to match the style of the former's opening credits montage. The opening sequence of each season of The Wire featured a different recording of its theme song, "Way Down in the Hole," and imagery corresponding to the season's plot, so Montalbano did the same trick with the five seasons of Breaking Bad. It's kinda amazing to see the footage recast in the stlye of The Wire, and to notice his incredible attention to visual detail.
