Gus Fring concludes our training with a lesson on dealing with emergencies

Gus Fring is back for one final employee training video! We conclude with a lesson on handling emergency situations in the workplace.

It’s graduation day folks! Today we move on from trainees to full-blown Los Pollos Hermanos employees. Well, it becomes official once you’re finished with the below video. In the video, Gus Fring lectures us on the proper ways to deal with an emergency situation at work. Of course, the video is packed with references to Breaking Bad and Gus Fring’s drug empire. I’m sure you could have guessed that with one look at the thumbnail.

References to Breaking Bad and the real Gus Fring

– First, we see Gus using a box cutter when demonstrating the proper handling of sharp objects. However, I don’t think cutting the throat of an out-of-line employee is what he has in mind. Still, that’s exactly what Gus did in the season 5 premiere of Better Call Saul, aptly titled Box Cutter. 

– Then, we see a young couple on a date. Of course, that couple is none other than Jesse Pinkman and his season 2 girlfriend Jane Margolis. Jane begins to choke, the very thing that caused her death in Breaking Bad. Jesse, also in Breaking Bad fashion, says bitch.

– When speaking on unorthodox emergencies, Gus brings up the threat of a gunman. He then proceeds to say “leave it to me,” and walks towards the gunfire. This same situation played out, just not in cartoon form, in the Breaking Bad episode Bug. 

– Finally, Gus concludes the training with a stone-faced and monotone “Now…get back to work.” This line pretty much sums up Gus’ interactions with Walt and Jesse during Breaking Bad’s fourth season.
