UPDATE: In short, the answer is yes. This was, to date, the biggest fan troll of all time. All the posts, photos and teasing leading people to believe a film could be on the horizon turned out to be part of an advertisement for their new Mezcal.

Three years ago we sat in a sushi bar in New York. Talking about life and what we could possibly do down the road together. We had the time of our lives while shooting Breaking Bad and truly built a very special bond. Knowing that we couldn’t share the screen for quite a while – our thoughts turned to a new project. We sipped cocktails and thought about what it should be. The younger one looked at his drink and said, you know what we should do? We should do a really special Mezcal. The older one said, you mean the liquor with a worm at the bottom? Nah, that was just some bullshit gimmick, I mean real, artesanal Mezcal made by hand in Mexico. After that dinner we couldn’t get the idea out of our heads. So, we started traveling to Oaxaca to see if we could find it, and we mean it had to be “it,” something so damn good even people who don’t think they like Mezcal will love it. It had to be perfect or we weren’t going to do it. We searched high and low all over Oaxaca, met incredible people along the way and after a beautiful yet grueling search throughout that majestic landscape we believed we may have found our place. Our Mezcal. It was on a dirt-road, in tiny village, hours away from the center of town, we found it and it was perfect. Holy shit it was perfect. We looked at each other and just simply nodded. This is it. We named it Dos Hombres – two guys on a quest. It’s been a long and crazy journey and we couldn’t be happier to share this with you and the rest of the world. We are crazy about the taste, the aroma, and the versatility of this smokey, age-old alcohol. Try it, and let us know what you think. We are certain you will love it. Well, that’s our story. What’s yours? Go to Doshombres.com to get a bottle of your own. Follow us at @Doshombres and @Mezcal to hear more about Mezcal and Dos Hombres. — AP & BC 📷 @coryt
Breaking Bad fans were furious yesterday when Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston posted new matching Instagram photos leading them to believe the “collaboration” they had hoped was a Breaking Bad sequel is just an ad for booze… and quite possibly the best fan troll of all time.
A collaboration so smooth you can taste it. 🥃 24 hours people! pic.twitter.com/c6kBRnxnCW

Paul and Cranston posted simultaneous, seemingly matching pictures yesterday for the third time in just a couple of weeks. However, while the first two posts had fans hoping for the long-rumored Breaking Bad sequel, this one shows them drinking and says “A collaboration so smooth you can taste it,” with a tumbler glass emoji followed by “24 hours people!”
So now we wait and find out – did they just troll their loyal fans with a liquor endorsement or is there really something special for Breaking Bad fans on the way?
