7 PR Lessons from Breaking Bad’s Walter White

This guest post is by Jake O’Neill, editorial coordinator of Cision UK.

As I am based at Cision UK, I am yet to see the finale of Breaking Bad and as such, this post only has spoilers up to (and including) the penultimate episode. But be warned, it does have spoilers.

Breaking Bad has grown into a unique TV experience. Thanks to Netflix, it is one of the first global water-cooler programmes, allowing the Internet to discuss plot points, critiques and predictions on almost even footing.

Whether, like me, you’re about to finish or you’re just starting the first series [STOP READING!], the Breaking Bad journey is long and, surprisingly, educational. For example, who knew what would happen when a wet squeegee was placed across the terminals of a car battery? As the fifth and final series draws to a close, what lessons can PRs learn from Walter White?

Here’s my pick of the top seven. If you think we’ve missed any, let us know in the comments below.
