On Sunday night, there was a very peculiar overlap in the TV schedules. The latest episode of "Breaking Bad" aired during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. The natures of both shows create big topics of conversation on Twitter, but they also crossed over in a way that was totally unexpected.
Miley obviously won the "Most talked about moment" of the show. Her twerking with Robin Thicke was just about everywhere in the day after the show. Everyone was talking about it, or watching the video if they hadn't seen it already. Everyone, including Hank and Marie Schrader.
A viral video from YouTube user Sam Barnett combined two of the big topics of conversation from Sunday night into one amazing mash-up.

You know how on "Seinfeld," Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer were always seeing those weird, fake movies and talking about them? Well, the folks over at Next Movie have brought a bunch of them to life with posters.
Check out a few more after the jump, but head to Next Movie to see the rest!
"Prince Avalanche," the new movie from writer-director David Gordon Green, follows two road workers, played by Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, as they repaint a strip of highway after a forest fire ravaged the area. It's a small, quirky comedy that gives Rudd a lot of time to be alone on camera in the wilderness.
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Rudd to talk about "Prince Avalanche," the actor said that he doesn't mind being by himself and that — if he's being completely honest — he wishes he had more.
To do what, you might ask?
Frankly, you probably shouldn't ask because that just gives Rudd the opportunity to start talking about his Shake Weight routines... at least that's what we think he's talking about.
"Prince Avalanche" opens in limited release on August 9.
Katy Perry, in an interview with Metro said that she really wants to act. Specifically, she wants the role of Rachael in "Blade Runner 2," which is currently being written. "With films, I hope to win you all over with animation and then do other films," she said. "I am really interested in comedy, and I would really love to play Rachael in 'Blade Runner 2' if Ridley would just call!"
Perry does have a point here. There is a strong resemblance between her and Sean Young in "Blade Runner," and that got us thinking. While we're recasting Rachael with Perry, why not fill out the rest of the cast with pop stars?
This is what we came up with.
The folks over at Next Movie are at it again. Earlier this week, their first supercut of movie references in "The Simpsons" from seasons one through five blew up the internet, and now the hilarity is back for seasons six through ten, some of the show's very best.
The supercut includes classic "Simpsons" moments like Mr. Burns' reimagining of "Be Our Guest, "See My Vest," as well as one of the best episodes of all time "Itchy & Scratchy Land." (Hans Moleman in the phone booth kills me every time.)
Check out all of the movie-referencing goodness in part two of the "Simpsons" supercut above.
FROM NEXT MOVIE
"The Simpsons" has always been a show that likes to incorporate film references into its episodes in clever ways, many of them too subtle to catch on your first viewing. Since our love of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie will never, ever go away, we're very pleased to share a creation from our friends over at Next Movie that collects every cinematic nod from the first five seasons.
You're probably thinking "How could you possibly catch every single reference from 'The Simpsons,' even if it is just the first five season?" Well, the video is 20 minutes long, and should definitely be an indication of both the volume of movie references and the thoroughness of the supercut.
Check out the "Simpsons" movie reference supercut in the video above.
Aaron Paul is an amazing actor, right? That scene of him in the hospital bed from "Breaking Bad" was one of the show's finest moments, but Paul had to learn to walk before he could run away from murderous meth dealers.
Paul made his acting debut in an episode of "90210," and Jay Leno found the tape. As we see in Paul's most recent visit to "The Tonight Show," he wasn't exactly what you would call a natural. It's also when Paul had his first on-screen kiss, if you were wondering if it could get more awkward for the Emmy winner.
Check out the clip above and enjoy the look on Aaron Paul's face when they come back from the clip.
The whole craze around Jennifer Lawrence is that she's just like us... only way, way cooler. And the way she interacts with some of the weirdness of Hollywood makes complete sense to us normals.
That's why it was totally awesome when JLaw ran into Jeff Bridges at San Diego Comic-Con. The two Academy Awards winners were walking the same press line, and it appears that Lawrence couldn't help but run over and say "hello." You can check out the first part of her interview at the beginning of the clip, then skip to 2:30 to see her interaction with Bridges.
She's the best, and so is he, for that matter.

"They took my grandfather. That's why I really hate sharks."
If "Jaws" or "Deep Blue Sea" (the epic LL Cool J flick from the 90s) didn't convince you that sharks are bad dudes, then "Sharknado," which premiered on SyFy last night, is sure to do the job.
While Nova (played by Cassie Scerbo) delivers a heartfelt monologue about her traumatic childhood with the ferocious beasts, the real drama involves modern-day sharks that have teamed up with tornados to terrorize Los Angeles.
If you've ever seen an interview with "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo del Toro, you probably know that he's a super nice guy. Always enthusiastic, always cheerfully geeky, Guillermo is the best. But is there a dark side to the director?
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Ron Perlman and Charlie Day to talk about "Pacific Rim," he couldn't help but ask if del Toro ever lost his cool, nice guy vibe. Perlman, who has worked with del Toro on numerous occasions, said that he's like family, so they've seen all different sides of each other.
"Guillermo and I have seen each other at our best and at our worst. We still adore each other. It's like we're real family," Perlman said. "That's what happens in families. We're together so much in so many different circumstances that sometime it's just going to get stupid, and sometimes it's going to be sublime."
So even if Perlman wasn't willing to give us some dirt, Day saw some darkness and wasn't afraid to share.
