Gus Fring is back and making everything creepier as usual.
TVLine debuted a new promo for Better Call Saul Wednesday, and it’s a chilling chicken commercial for Los Pollos Hermanos.
In this “Taste the family” ad, a robotically smiling Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) and his employees welcome happy families into their fast food restaurant that fronts a drug empire. Knowing Gus, it would hardly be a surprise to learn that Pollos was in fact serving human flesh.
Fring’s return was teased in Saul‘s Season 2 finale and Esposito appearing in this sinisterly sweet ad confirms it. We know how Gus met Walter White and how their professional relationship ended on Breaking Bad, but what business did Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) have with Fring’s franchise before?
Better Call Saul returns this spring.
