Bob Odenkirk, is featured in a new music video promoting his “Breaking Bad” spin-off, “Better Call Saul.” But the booming baritone of country singer Junior Brown is the star of the hilarious clip.

The show’s creators, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, reportedly wrote the words to the song.

The tune’s lyrics are totally catchy, and the song has the potential to burn into the brains of viewers like other popular television theme songs.

If it becomes the theme song that is. So far no word on whether the song is a one-off or will be featured on the show.

Odenkirk reprises his role of lawyer Saul Goodman who represented meth kingpin Walter White in “Breaking Bad.” The show also stars Jonathan Banks and Michael McKean.

In the new series, Goodman’s real name is Jimmy McGill and he’s working as a small-time lawyer. It takes place in 2002, six years before meeting up with White.

Goodman has a general law-practice handling low level crimes like petty drug cases, drunk driving and down and dirty divorces.

The show will premiere in Feb. 2015, with a 10-episode arc, according to the producers.

Brown, 62, plays his signature double-neck guitar combining a regular guitar and a steel guitar. He also wrote the tune, which is characteristic of his honky-tonk, Western swing style of music.
