Not only is this hilarious, it’s also the proper way to deal with trolls. Got an issue? Here’s a tissue. The #daditude abounds.

It irks me that these are supposedly fans of a progressive metal band, yet they don’t want them to progress. So, in classic VOM style, they have gone all out to create this sweet Breaking Bad parody, just for those weepy trolls:

I’m impressed by the acting talent here – some of these impressions are spot-on, and of course Marc naturally looks like Gus Fring already, so that’s a magical coincidence.

Kudos to the band for not catering to small-minded trolls, and I look forward to their new album.
