Bryan Cranston is helping parents everywhere with his audiobook rendition of the new explicit kids’ book, You Have to F***ing Eat.
The book is the next in the line of the popular series from author, Adam Mansbach. Go the F*** to Sleep was the first of the stories to explode across the internet. That one was read with the iconic voice help of Samuel L. Jackson.
Mansbach’s latest book captures “the other universal parental frustration” he revealed during an interview with PopSugar. Of course, what seals the deal is the perfect narration from Cranston.
“As soon as we were talking about the audio book, he [Cranston] was the first person to come to mind,” Mansbach explained. “It was either Sam [Jackson] does it again or Bryan Cranston. Having someone at this caliber doing it is flattering and exciting.”
The book starts out sweet enough, with rabbits munching on carrots and lambs nibbling grass, but don’t worry, the pleasantries don’t last long.
“Oh, now you’re hungry? Tough s***. Kitchen’s closed,” Cranston reads, his voice morphing from peaceful dad to something more reminiscent of his Breaking Bad days. “Have some warm milk. For me, a scotch. Neat.”
Mansbach’s books aren’t just something parents can relate to, either. Anyone with siblings or young relatives is sure to know the hardships and tantrums of toddlers. If anything else, the book is worth the listen for the pure entertainment factor.
CAUTION: As you can tell from the title of the book, the video contains some explicit content. Watch at your own discretion.
Another warning: This video might make you really, really wish Breaking Bad was still on television. As if you needed any help missing the show.
