Watch Breaking Bad...on ice!

Sharidan Williams-Sotelo's "Breaking Ice" offers a unique figure-skating tribute to the AMC series

Diehard Breaking Bad fans are accustomed to one kind of crystal — but "Breaking Ice," a figure-skating tribute to the AMC series, eschews crystal meth in favor of ice crystals to surprisingly impressive effect.

"Breaking Ice" was "conceived and cooked up by" Sharidan Williams-Sotelo, who worked as an assistant editor on the show. The video offers an impressively comprehensive collection of some of Breaking Bad's most memorable moments. All your old favorites are there: Walt and Jesse; Badger and Skinny Pete; Jane, Gale, and even Hank — who turns out to be surprisingly light on his feet.

But for a concept that could have been played as a wacky gimmick, there are part of "Breaking Ice" that are surprisingly moving. "Elegy for Jane" captures the tragedy of Jesse and Jane's doomed relationship, and David Costabile's reading of When I Heard the Learned Astronomer makes a genuinely chilling backdrop as the skaters glide across the ice. For anyone who's still mourning the end of Breaking Bad, "Breaking Ice" offers a truly unique way to relive the series one last time.
